I have been at Eastern Oregon University for over a year now and I absolutely love it! From the staff to the teachers, everyone has been extremely helpful. All of my issues have been resolved quickly. I am doing the online program because I prefer a self paced environment. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

It is a small, quaint college. The access to food and drinks is available breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The faculty members are extremely helpful and patient. They are also very nice. The online facets of the school are set up well so we students do not have trouble accessing course materials and submitting due assignments. The bookstore has several versions of required reading materials along with leisurely reading materials. Clothing and snacks are available there as well. Purchases can be made with cash or credit, or digital money on any one student's account. Diversity is also a large concern with the school. Many students from many backgrounds attend Eastern Oregon University because of the school's persistent work in recruitment.
This is my first time attending a college or a school in the U.S. I love the weather, I'm getting used to the cold. There is always something to do here. There is a library, gym, football field, and theater. If I want to study or just want to have a quiet time, I will go to the library. If I have free time, I go to the gym and workout or play basketball or volleyball. There are always games every week in the gym or the football field. Every semester there are shows or play that happen in the theater and they are really great shows. The professors, faculty, and staffs are always there for their students. When I need help, they reach out and help me in any way possible. It is a small campus so almost everyone knows everyone. The environment around this campus is so clean and it makes me feel good walking to class. I like everything about this campus and the people in it.
