Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
My experiences at East Stroudsburg University were excellent! I earned my undergraduate degree Bachelor of Science in Recreational Therapy. The program was small and the professors were tremendous. They knew us by name and were unbelievably understanding and supportive. As a non-traditional student, I served our country as a member of the United States Army National Guard. The professors and staff at East Stroudsburg University were extremely accommodating and understood the demands of service. They worked with me pertaining to assignments and deadlines that conflicted with my duties as a soldier in the Army National Guard. To this end, I am extremely grateful. Additionally, I was encouraged by my wife Alicia to pursue a career in education as a teacher of students with disabilities. My college advisor went the mile with me to assist in this pursuit, as I needed two additional classes in the arena of special education (outside of my major). She approved the taking of these classes, which opened the door for my alternative route endeavor to become teacher certified in New Jersey. When it was all said and done, I earned 5 teaching certifications in New Jersey upon graduating with my degree in Recreational Therapy from East Stroudsburg University. My advisor also pointed out that if the state of New Jersey was providing the alternate route option, it was more cost effective not to switch majors thus I took the required courses New Jersey needed for my intended certifications. In all, I love what I do today and am extremely grateful for the mentoring, assistance, and support I received at East Stroudsburg University.
Pretty campus. Small faculty which sucks but they do their best and are very helpful. No concentrations but a well rounded program.
