From Eastern Washington University

So who are we? We're not the type of people born with silver spoons. We're the type of people who work hard. We'll have fun in college, but we want a job when we're done. And we don't want debt. At all. In fact, half of us graduate debt-free, and 93% are employed after we graduate, which is definitely above the national average.

Some of us came for the state’s lowest tuition and friendly Eagle community. Some of us came to expand our opportunities. Some of us came for the networks and knowledge to help us build our best futures.

We all stayed because we make a difference. After all, life at EWU is about the community. People smile. They want to hear your story. They want you to belong. They want you to succeed and to change the lives of people around you.

Welcome to the only college on earth where the grass is always redder--and not just because the football field is bright red.
