Meet Eastern Students

Gaia Mistriel ’22 Gaia Mistriel ’22

Favorite Place Off-Campus? Only a 10 minute walk off campus is “Grounded,” a sweet place I like to go to drink tea and do homework. It is really nice to be able to study downtown in a cafe and feel like any other Willimantic resident.

Why Eastern?  I chose Eastern because of the great things I’ve heard about the CARE program for the Elementary Education major. 
Favorite Class Taken: 
I’m not much of a Biology fan, but this semester taking Human Biology with Professor Tenney was worth it. She cares for her students and creates a comfortable and enjoyable environment within her class.

Favorite Eastern Memory? I’ve participated in the Repertory Dance Troupe since my freshman year and am very happy I joined, as I have gained a second family of friends. RDT has been a special part of my college experience.
