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.
Eastern Arizona College is a home away from home for anyone willing to get involved with College Life locally. The small campus size gives you the opportunity to make more friends and take better advantage of teacher assistance. Definitely worth checking out!
