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.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
I've been attending for 2 quarters. So far, so good. Instructors at Riverpoint are awesome.
Elizabeth from Spokane, WA
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.
