3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As far as academics are concerned EOU does a fairly good job of caring for each student in counseling and work resources. But besides that the social life here is simply terrible. Parties are busted 80% of the time, which is fine because only 10 people were invited in the first place. Additionally you will find that all those "cliques" from highschool, well they're here too and in greater numbers. My honest suggestion as a student here is that unless you're a 5-star athlete or a cowboy, go someplace else.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its small and everyone is friendly and willing to help you. Its also close to home and affordable.

Overall Experience: I loved how immediate the responses were and how everyone made you feel welcome.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: don't know really much about this

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: very fast and easy to get responses and access to information

5 College Junior

Athletics: The gym facilities at eastern are very good for such a small campus. The sports teams have scheduled times when they are at the gym so during those times it can get pretty crowded. When the teams are not in I have never had to wait to use a machine and there are always available spots on the mats.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I personally know little about the housing off campus in this area because I live with a family member. From what I do know the housing prices in this area are on the lower end for a college town. There are houses and apartments which range between 400 - 800$.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Although the local restaurants for the most part are not very healthy they are very tasty. The majority of places offer a 10% discount to students if you present your student ID. The prices are not overpriced.

Administration: I think all of the policies have a purpose and are reasonable.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There are parties on occasion. I do not attend large parties so I cannot comment on that. The parties I have and do attend are with friends for birthdays or other holidays.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food on campus was alright. The food at Mac's was very greasy and their breakfast sandwiches were similar to those at McDonald's however they are about double the price.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I am currently attending Eastern Oregon University. My freashman year was the only year that I was a resident in the dorms. I had a suite in North Daughtry. A suite has three bedroom's with one bed in each room, a wardrobe, a small dresser, and a desk. There was a small living area with a couch and a chair. Attached to the living area was a small kitchen area. There was a full sized fridge, sink, microwave, and cabinets. There was also a bathroom with a toilet, sink, and a shower. The dorms were nice however the walls were very thin.

The social atmosphere of the dorms was welcoming and fun. The RA's hosted some kind of event every week or two. These event were good opportunities to get to know some of the other residents.

The resident hall I lived in had a media room on the second floor which had a few couches, a coffee table, and a large flat screen TV. Also on the second floor was a study area on the second floor where the two wings of the dorm met. This area had couches, tables, and chairs. The laundry room was also near the study area.

The ground level had a kitchen which all of the residents were welcome to use. There was a pool table, a ping pong table, and a flat screen tv. In a separate room there was a piano that the resident were also welcome to use.

Off-Campus Dining: There are some great restaurants in La Grande that students eat at, but only a couple offer student discounts. Most of the restaurants that EOU students go to are chain and fast-food places, such as Taco Bell, Taco Time, McDonald's, Wendy's, Subway, and Dairy Queen, there are sit down place too, such as Pizza Hut, Denny's, Bear Mountain, Mamacita's, and The Cock and Bull.

Administration: The administration can be annoying with how stern they are about things, because of the repetition of the subject. Administration on campus either care or don't care if you attend things, it is just based on the class and professor.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Resident Life at Eastern Oregon University is very nice, there is plenty of room for all the things you need to live there for your schooling. The dorms have two bedrooms, a kitchenette, living room, a closet, a shower room and 1/2 bathrooms. The bedrooms each hold two residents, so in total a suite holds up to four students. The commons in the Halls have a full kitchen equiped with a oven with a stove top for cooking. Although there are many rules to abide by when living on campus (for safety reasons), there are still many possibilities and things to do.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: EOU is a very safe school, there is a security group that is always on duty, as well as the Resident Assistants who are constantly on call for any residents who need help. There is also a faculty member living in the dorms to be there incase of emergencies. EOU has emergency call phones located throughout campus incase of emergencies. There are also security cameras in the newer buildings for safety reasons.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The professors are very kind to the students and will easily go out of their way to assist in any ways possible. The program offers many different ways of involving theatre into your working life after school, such as stage management, acting, and design. Being in the Theatre Arts program at EOU allows even the freshman to have a chance at large productions the university puts on, where as other colleges only upperclassmen are allowed to audition.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: I have never had an issue with Financial Aid. They are always quick and there to help. I even receive e-mails helping me with financial aid.

Academics: I'm an Anthropology major and the professors are all so amazing. They tell us stories about what we are suppose to do and we go out and observe people. We do a lot of work, but we also get very close to the professors and sometimes help with their studies as well.

3 College Senior

Academics: We had a lot cut in this up coming year so I feel EOU has lost it's feel for providing education to those of us who chose them for college.

Diversity: We strive to have people transfer to our school from all over the world, and most of the money goes to these students too so that is a problem for me.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: people just have sex with everyone, which is fine, it's not my thing though. They pass around all sorts of STDs

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I'm not much of a fan of girls anyway.

Athletics: I personally hate how much money is spent on the sports programs here, everyone else gets to lack everything they want or need just so sports can have all the money and facilities

2 College Senior

Campus Food: Mac's is the only late night option and the prices are sky high!
