I absolutely love EWU! The campus is beautiful, and you really get to experience all four seasons. All of my professors were super approachable and willing to help in anyway possible. They really want to see you succeed, and that is refreshing to see. I would recommend EWU to anyone looking for an environment where they can grow and achieve their personal as well as academic goals.

My Brother is in the service, came back from deployment over seas, and while working on the other side of the world, Eastern stayed in touch with him, showing him is options and what Eastern has to offer, helping him set up how future when he got home. Their kindness and dedication to their students is why Eastern is my Top choice for School!
Eastern Washington University is a beautiful and diverse place to attend college. There are so many ways to get involved and they have something for everyone! My favorite part of EWU is having this feeling of belonging somewhere. I have created a family here and wouldn't trade it for the world. The staff members helped me decide what I wanted to major in by simply being nice and encouraging. They steer you on the right path and are always there for you. Applying to EWU was one of the best decisions of my life.
