Due to COVID-19, EOU turned their final term of the 2019-2020 school year online. Now, as a student who prefers on campus classes, I have to say this transition was not the easiest. However, EOU faculty was flexible and were willing to work with me to better understand the systems and allowed me to ask questions whenever I needed. The professors made each course online easy enough to follow but challenging enough that we still got to learn like we did if we were on campus. I have enjoyed my online schooling a lot! It honestly has changed how I view online courses and might even take more.

One of eastern Oregon University's claim to fame is their online courses and I can tell you that this is true. While online learning is not for everyone, in these hard times there is not always the option. I have found that their classes are comprehensive, their platform easy to access and has easy to navigate resources. The professors are always available and ready to help if you have any problems, just ask. If you need tech help the IT department is very knowledgable and easy to reach. If you are having to take online college because of the pandemic I would highly recommend Eastern Oregon University.
I have really enjoyed my time at Eastern Oregon University so far. It is very student-oriented and all the faculty and staff members all want to see you achieve your dreams. Not only are there small class sizes for a close and personal relationship with each professor, but also there is a small community where you get to know everyone around you and supporting you. One thing that I would like to see change at EOU is the mindset. A lot of the students believe that all the University wants is their money, even though that might be true I believe by having the mindset of the students and allowing them to thrive will create a more beneficial campus and learning area. I also would like to see EOU become more eco-friendly with more recycling bins and trash cans around campus as well as finding ways to conserve water and electricity. By those aspects I believe EOU will become one of the finest Universities in the country.
