Eastern Washington University

Cheney, WA, USA
3.65 Average Rating

Situated on a 300-acre campus in Cheney, Eastern Washington University is a 4-year institution that’s been an accredited 4-year-degree-conferring entity long before it took its current name in 1977. Since opening its doors in 1882, EWU has grown to offer 143 areas of study, as well as house the only industrial robotics and automation program in a three-state area. Eastern Washington is also only one of three universities with a research facility in a national wildlife refuge and the only university in the nation to have the Microsoft Professional Program to be integrated with a degree—their data analytics program. Outside of academics, EWU maintains EPIC Adventures for students to take trips, events, and classes of all kinds, and the campus itself is only 20 minutes from Spokane and 45 minutes from five mountain ranges.

What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
the teachers here are great and they push you to your maximum limits so that you can fulfill your full potential. very friendly environment its just a little chilly in the winter and going to class becomes a chore. despite the weather, the teachers still maintain a very positive attitude!

rating eastern washington as a whole would be a tough question to ask just one student based on his or her experiences, however i would rate my experience a 9 out of 10. the transition phases that any student goes through are going to be extremely difficult, however eastern's experience in this phase have not been surpassed by any outside sources so far as i am familiar with.
