    We just visited last Tuesday. Very nice campus, and very friendly people. Of course, it's hard to get a feel for the place when it's not full of students. One interesting fact-- no football team, apparently because of the Church of the Brethren affiliation (no Greek life either). Not important for our son, but something to note.

    No football, but soccer is very big at E-town. Lots of other sports too - my son played tennis. No Greek life, but there are special interest group houses at the edge of campus. Groups of kids who share an interest in a certain community service (ie tutoring or being a Big Brother) can choose to live together in these houses.

    We got the feeling that there were plenty of things to do and lots of athletic opportunities, despite the lack of football and Greek life.
