Eastern Arizona College is the only community college in the state, as well as the oldest. Founded in 1888 by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the main EAC campus is located in Thatcher, while there are slo two satellite sites in Gila and Greenlee counties. The main campus at EAC features the Small Business Center, which is made up of a network of small business professionals and offers free counseling to entrepreneurs. Eastern Arizona College also has a partnership with Northern Arizona University called “2NAU,” which provides a pathway to a baccalaureate degree via a joint admission program.
EAC is a great college! It is almost like a great big high school. The education i obtain and friends i made here will forever be priceless.

I rate Eastern Arizona College as high as the scale can go. It is perfect for small town people to grow and expand their knowledge base. It is also just small enough to get to know many different cultures and ways of life!
