Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2020

Eastern Washington University's Master of Social Work degree provides a core curriculum for students pursuing a MSW. They tailor the hybrid part-time program for working professionals and approximately 90% of my cohort already worked in the field of social and human services. The professors are supportive and engaging. There is a lot of group work, therefore be prepared to rely on your colleagues for a good grade. This program is only moderately challenging if you already have a back ground in human services. The most difficult part is completing a practicum if you work full time.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

EWU is a great school. I obtained both my bachelor's degree and MBA from Eastern. Professors are very knowledgeable and I really enjoyed my classes. Both their Cheney and downtown Spokane campuses are great!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2018

I love Eastern Washington University. I completed my undergraduate course work here and am not progressing towards my master's in teaching. The professors are all very passionate about their subjects and the faculty care about your experiences. There are tons of tutoring resources, technology resources and the teachers all have office hours and will help you with any questions you might have. This school makes sure you understand the content area and teaches passion for the curriculum. I can't imagine going to school anywhere else.

Degree: Dental Hygiene
Graduation Year: 2018

Eastern Washington University's masters program has provided me a well rounded education. The program director, Ann, is always available and supportive. She wants you to succeed. The online learning process has been smooth and I have made many friends from across the country. I would recommend the Master's of Science Dental Hygiene program to every RDH.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Transferring from a community college to a university was somewhat intimidating for me. After my first quarter enrolled at EWU this feeling subsided. I was pleased with how organized the admissions office was and how well my adviser was able to map out quarter by quarter what classes I needed to take and when. I was able to receive my degree in the estimated time and had great support from my professors when needed. The Cheney campus is well kept and has plenty great hide away spots for quite study time. I enjoyed the "college experience" at this campus as it was professional but was still able to have fun. If you are looking for a great university with a beautiful campus in a small town, EWU is the place for you!

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015

When choosing which collage to go to, Eastern Washington University (EWU) was the smart choice for me. At the time, all I knew was that EWU was a 25-minute drive from home, the tuition was reasonably priced, I received a scholarship there, and I could live at home with my parents and therefore save money. My parents encouraged me to go there even though I wanted the "college experience" at a bigger college across the country. They persuaded me to go to Eastern because and I came to a realization that I didn't want to leave college financially devastated and ultimately I am at an advantage being close to my family, friends, and resources. By my senior year at EWU, I had been commuting from Spokane to Cheney and then back to Spokane for work for four years. I began to understand why my parents pushed me to attend EWU. The education I had received was top notch. I flourished there without even knowing it. Yeah I received good grades and remained motivated in school, but perhaps I maintained that was because I had a network and community close to me at all times, I made wonderful friends, I could afford buying those nice jeans I wanted because I lived at home, and best yet, my education there made me a resourceful and critically thinking student. When I started noticing areas where I struggled in school, I found help and received accommodations from campus resources. The help I have received catapulted my study power and performance as a student. In addition, I am thankful that Eastern prepared me for my studies to come in graduate school. My degree in undergraduate perfectly aligned with the requirements for the graduate program I will be starting this fall, Physical Therapy. Therefore, I did not have to take any extra courses for the application to EWUs graduate program. And lastly, I am thankful to have become certified in Disability Studies. Upon looking through EWUs course catalog my junior year, I stumbled upon three, five credit, courses for a Certificate in Disability Studies. This small University employed a passionate, enthusiastic, accommodating professor that was perfect for teaching the courses. There, I learned more than a textbook could ever teach me about disability. The experience was raw and life changing. So, thank you Eastern Washington University for providing the stepping stones for me to build the foundation for my journey to be an empathetic, compassionate, and analytical Physical Therapist one day soon. EWU was the best worst decision I have ever made.
