About Eastern Connecticut State University

Founded in 1889, Eastern Connecticut State University is the state’s public liberal arts university and one of only 26 such designated institutions in the country. Eastern is home to 5,400 students who come from 162 of Connecticut’s 169 townships, from 26 states throughout the country, and from 44 foreign countries. As a predominantly residential campus, Eastern has approximately 60 percent of undergraduate students living on its beautiful campus. With more than 150 buildings and 2.3 million square feet of space, Eastern’s physical plant is admired by students and visitors alike; in fall 2015, a new Fine Arts Center will further advance Eastern’s liberal arts mission.

The university offers 34 undergraduate majors, 56 minors, and seven master’s degree programs. An excellent student/teacher ratio (16:1) and small class sizes (average class size is 24) allow students to receive exceptional personal attention.
