"The EWU Social Work staff are all amazing. They understand that students have lives outside of school and that things happen. I've always felt that the faculty was my own personal cheering squad. Classes are offered on both the Cheney and Spokane campuses so it's easy to make classes fit into your life. However, the number of classes are limited as it's a small program so it can feel as if you bend life around school."

"The graduate program at Eastern Washington University is great if you are accepted into the advanced standing program. The advanced standing program lets you skip the first year of the program. Unfortunately if you aren't accepted into the advanced standing program you must complete both years. The first year of the two year program is almost an exact repeat of the first year of the Bachelor's level program. Still a great school and relatively low cost."

"Eastern Washington University's Physical Therapy Program is one of the premier programs in the nation. They have a 100% pass rate on the licensing exam, and now that I am a student here, I can see why. The faculty and staff push us to stretch and grow. Although the bar is set high and requires a great amount of effort to succeed, the professors are extremely supportive. They are on our team and will do whatever it takes to help us succeed, both right now in the program and later in our careers. The use of technology here on campus is amazing. Our cadaver lab features 10 cadaver tables with a good ventilation system to reduce the smell. Each station has a computer monitor so that you can look up the necessary anatomy for the daily dissection. Our other labs feature large Smart TV's that are wired to an HD camera so that no matter where you are in the classroom, you can see the demonstration that is taking place. The only downside I can see to this program would be that we are 30 minutes away from the actual Eastern Washington University which is in the town of Cheney (we are in Spokane.) Because of this, it is difficult to take advantage of campus resources such as exercise facilities and to participate in intramurals."

"EWU had a stellar Human Performance Laboratory and amazing staff that helped me to fulfill my goal of working in this field of Exercise Science. I was able to apply what I learned in the classroom directly to the skills I needed working with clients in the laboratory setting. This enhanced my knowledge and understanding of the course content and skills necessary to find a job in this field."

"Pros: Allows me to further my education in my field of choice while allowing me to work in my chosen occupation. Cons: Program is extremely disorganized. There are no standards between the teachers in terms of grading or class difficulty "constancy""

"In general Computer science degree is good to earn and our future Technology more depends on this field. I see more opportunity in the coming future. South community college is a good start to study based on my experience. I am very thankful to the college and staff member for their support."

"I began my degree in Cheney, WA and finished my degree at the Bellevue, WA satellite campus. Both experiences were positive, and I was thankful for the ability to complete my degree on the west side of the mountains, when it became necessary. Both programs offered a variety of class selections and knowledgeable instructors. I am thankful to have had an affordable and well-rounded education that allowed me to step into the world of Business (Human Resources) with a strong foundation of common sense, people skills, and business acumen."

"I thought the campus life was not as quality as some other schools in the state. It seems like its a school that is not big enough nor small enough. It waivers in the middle somewhere, missing out on major college athletics as the big schools have and misses out on the small school community feel. It also seems to have a high percentage of commuting students which also hurts the community feel of the school."

"My program is a work in progress, but it is well on its way to be one of the best anthropology programs in the Northwest in a few years. With a young, enthusiastic faculty/leadership, EWU is a great place for anthropology."

"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."

"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."

  • Degree: Creative Writing
"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."

"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."
