Eastern Washington University Reviews

26 reviews
I'm a running start student at Eastern Washington University. The place overall is a great place. The only thing that I would like is that if they get you more prepared for the first day. I was not informed about the online tools they use for their classes and had to figure it all out the first day. Other than that, I haven't experienced any other problems at the school. The people there are amazing!

It is a more affordable school to get your education. Eastern Washington University is a regional, comprehensive public university located in Cheney, Washington, with programs offered at campuses in Cheney, EWU Spokane at the River point Campus and at multiple campus locations throughout the state. Also you can get many degrees online as well through EWU!
I Love that Eastern Washington University offers not only face to face instruction on its campus in Cheney, but, on other campuses in a different city (Bellevue, WA) if you aren't local in Cheney. I love that they also offer 100% online classes for distance learners and hybrid classes for those that want the experience of face-to-face instruction but are limited with respect to timing and schedules so online classes are beneficial, as well.
