There are very few individuals who would not benefit from the EIU experience. I have seen very few people leave EIU unsatisfied. However, the people who do not enjoy EIU are those who feel "stir crazy" in the small community of Charleston. Charleston is not the most exciting place, and students must learn to thrive by establishing friendships and spending time with new people. Individuals who get their thrills from shopping at the mall, experiencing an active "downtown" scene, or the city life would not enjoy EIU very much.
