Student & Graduate Reviews

3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros - Great advisors and professors Cons- College town is very small.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

EWU is an affordable school with good quality academic programs. The class size is small enough to be able to get more personal help from professors and to become acquainted with your peers, but large enough to have large events, access to technology, and career finding resources.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

A con is that the program was very informative when I first became a student. There were a lot of information I was not provided with and I had to find help myself. A pro is that everyone in town says great things about the program and the faculty is welcoming and friendly.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Not only did I have great teachers who were usually available to answer all my questions and give me alternatives for a better grade; I also had a lot of opportunities to share my education with other students through international clubs and study programs. Financial aid opportunities is somewhat hard to hear about, but there are a lot of counselors to help students figure it out. At night time, the campus safety was somewhat concerning as there were several assaults while I was there, but the safety features of the dorms made me feel really safe. The school library was armed with so much technology at the students disposal and the amounts of computer labs made it easy for me to do my work anywhere. Overall, I love this University and I suggest it to anyone thinking about going to college.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the creative writing program at Eastern Washington University are that you have small workshops and that you are required to participate in internships which are provided by the school. The internships allow for students to go into the community to teach creative writing to children and adults; they also give students hands on with marketing and publishing, which will help the students when they enter the 'real' world of work.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The program so far has been professionally challenging and academically inspiring. It has encouraged us to think critically and present new ideas, rather then regurgitate old known facts. I'm exceptionally honored to be a new member of this community of Occupational Therapists and can't wait to continue on further with my education.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

It is a great facility with many staff who are well informed in their field of study.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

On the first day of class one of our most challenging professors said to us, "You WILL be pushed to your limits. We require that you give us everything you've got; and in return we [the faculty] promise that we will get you to where you need to be." Our professors have done a phenomenal job instructing us. As I finish my first year, I still do not have a criticism for EWU's physical therapy program.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

It is great that they have a social work degree. Not many schools do.
