Student Life

At ESU, “engaging” does not just apply to the classroom. It’s an energy that permeates our campus, seeps into every corner, every activity, every event—everything you do, whether you’re on campus or online. It helps that students just like you, bring wide varieties of programs, from social to educational, cultural to recreational, service to leadership, to our campus. Our facilities, like our Student Recreation Center, just plain rock!
