EAC is a residential campus, a place where meeting fellow students is easy. In residence halls, students get the chance to meet new people and live in close proximity to individuals with different viewpoints and ideas, with great friendships developing in the process. Off-campus apartments occupy the blocks surrounding campus, so the neighborhood feels like a close part of the college community.
Cheering for the Gila Monsters at a football game, or attending one of the many performances that take place weekly on campus, there's always something going on, and there's a powerful sense of school pride. Campus clubs are active and engaged, as students with similar interests and career goals come together to discuss ideas or just have fun. The fact is that, unlike some colleges elsewhere in the state, where being a student means drifting from one huge lecture hall to another, at EAC there is truly a sense of community.
