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.

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.
Eastern Washington University is a great college for those students who look forward to having an average class size of 30 students or so. Safety in a college campus is always important, here at EWU our campus police have a record arrival time of 2 minutes flat, in addition the campus has 12 emergency stations, with a push of a button help will be on the way. A great upside here at Eastern is the coffee, and it helps greatly to those students who need that extra coffee boost in the morning. The professors here at Eastern are very guide full, you can find mentors/tutors for specific classes in the campus library. My overall experience Eastern Washington University has been fabulous, if you're looking for a 4 year university with a low tuition rate, amazing people and professors, Eastern may just be the perfect school for you.
