Eastern Washington University Reviews
Eastern Washington University is a great place to go to school. The atmosphere is great and there is always something to do around campus. The campus is absolutely stunning. Plus, everyone there is so nice and genuine. The professors are great and are always willing to work with the students. In addition, the facilities on the campus are top notch. Labs have new equipment and the interior of the buildings are always very clean and current. There are many activities to go do at EWU. Many students enjoy attending the football games that are played on red turf. I would recomend this school for anyone who is looking to make great memories!
As a student, my experience at Eastern has been like a dream. The dorms are comfortable and clean, food is a short walk from anywhere on campus, and the classrooms are state-of-the-art and incredibly clean. The average freshman scholarship is about $14,000! That's over half of the usual, in-state tuition. Many of my highschool teachers attended Eastern, and they ended up being incredible teachers. The campus is big enough to feel free, but small enough to feel safe when I am walking alone. Security is never more than a minute away. To add to all of this: the buffet is stellar.
Eastern Washington University was a fair priced school and very diverse. Although, it is a small town, I didn't fear for my life or felt as if there were bad neighborhoods or places to avoid. That being said, the places to eat or have tasty food isn't necessarily in Cheney, but Spokane isn't too far away and the bus system is wonderful!
