Party Scene: Cheney is a college town. Not too much to see here.

Diversity: There's enough diversity, but it's still a pretty white school.

Drug Safety: With the legalization of marijuana, it's easily accessible now!

1 College Student

Health & Safety: I started school September 2015. Judge for yourself:

A female student was raped in Morrison Hall on October 9, 2015.

Police investigating 7 sexual assault cases on October 27, 2015.

Student was arrested for shooting threats on November 23, 2015.

A student died in Brewster Hall on November 25, 2015.

EWU athlete shot another EWU student on the head on January 18, 2016.

I don't feel very safe in this campus!

Overall Experience: The teachers are okay, but they are not consistent. Grading differs from one teacher to the other, ie. 93% can be an A for a class, and then in another, it is 96%.

2 College Student

Overall Experience: Most people, who graduate from this school, get a job at this school. Sad really!

1 College Student

Campus Housing: This is the worst! As a freshman, I'm mandated to live in the dorms ($750/month) and pay for their meal plan ($633/month). See WAC 172-130! It's law!

It's not worth it. It's a rip off! The dorms are old (70's style), outdated, very small, and not very clean. The food is average at best.

Greek Life: I don't pay attention to them much!

1 College Student

Overall Experience: As a freshman, I am mandated to live in the dorms this year and required to pay for their ridiculous meal plans. (See WAC172-130. It's law! This is the first year they are enforcing this law.) The dorms cost $750/month. The meal plans cost $633/month. On top of that, Eastern has several mandatory expenses added on top of tuition and books: STA, PUB, Obamacare, parking, laundry, activity fee, etc. That's an added cost of $20,000/year that you didn't have last year. Make sure to check out these hidden expenses before you commit. Make sure to check out the dorms, too. They are old, outdated, and very small. No privacy. No walls between you and your roommate. If you can afford the extra $20,000/year, you might as well consider going to a better school with better accommodations. Some out-of-state schools are cheaper than Eastern even as an out-of-state resident, ie. Boise State University. Do your homework. Shop around. Save and graduate with no debt or minimal debt.

Overall Experience: The town is super small but there are so many wonderful places to go and see. Spokane is an easy drive and the kids at school are super friendly! Plenty of school spirit can be found here and plenty of good professors reside here as well.

Health & Safety: The school does a good job of keeping students aware of dangerous siutations. They provide safe buttons and emergency response services around and throughout campus. They make every student complete an online sexual awareness, drug, and alcohol program.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: General courses are not the best way for new students to feel confident in themselves and their education. The professors seem to have no passion. Classrooms are old but tidy. Some buildings don't have enough room for classes of their own. IE some chemistry classes were in the PE building.

4 College Student

Athletics: The gym facilities are clean and have nice relatively new equipment. Sports take a nice chuck of university money which is evident when you compare the gym to the science building.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I am a science major and so far I have have pretty bad experiences with math courses and general science courses. EWU is ranked one of the worst math departments in Washington and I have definitely seen that. Also there in no general grading scale for science and math. Some professors say 90% is a 4.0 and others say 96%. Depending on which professor you take you have a better chance of passing your class. We need more consistency. Also general education classes typically have low end instructors. I want passionate instructors not just people who took the job for money and job security.

Health & Safety: Its better than when I first started here. I think there were 7 in the first month or so.

Overall Experience: All my teachers have been good to me.

Campus Housing: I don't like the small dorm rooms but there is a lot of cabinet space. Too many people running around late at night and being quiet isn't being enforced. The price we are paying for a dorm is outrageous. I cant wait to get an apt to have some quiet time.

Greek Life: Don't get involved with this.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't spend a lot of time at the games but I do know they are important. I have attended a few football and volleyball games.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It has been a learning experience for me. Living in the dorm has been a challenge. I have never had to share a room with someone and that has been interesting. I like to keep things cleaned and she is the opposite. I miss having home cooked meals and not having the luxury of eating in my own place at home. The teachers have been great and I have learned a lot from them in just the 2 quarters I have been here. I struggled my first quarter (just being away from home), but my second quarter grades were a lot better. I didn't know what to expect when I first got here, but It is definitely different than being in high school. I do feel safe here even though they have had quite a few assaults reported. My overall experience has been a good one and I am getting ready for my third quarter starting tomorrow.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The environment of the campus is great and friendly. The professors are very nice however some of them are not very good when it comes to teaching.
