4 College Freshman

Diversity: The school had a whole diverse week, and lots of ethnic study classes.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There isn't peer pressure, but parties just seem gross. Lots of students drink in their dorms, and weed is smoked in them without the enforcers doing anything.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I just do not feel at home here, and that I just struggle with the general studies I have had to take. I wish that there was less general studies, but maybe I should transfer to an art school I know I wouldn't be able to attend the full year. Art schools are so much more expensive, and that's really the only thing I am good at. The professors here are either really nonchalant, or just don't seem to care about their students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They have job fairs here, but they are always during a time when I am in class, so I usually miss them. I've only had one art class, and mustered my courage to talk to the professor about photography, and it was quick and I felt like I was wasting her time.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: All freshmen were required to take a two hour something class on sexual assault, and the different levels of it. In the beginning of the year, the first quarter, there was about five sexual assaults reported on campus. I was nervous at first, until I realized it was mainly girls who were walking alone drunk from a party.

One thing that I strongly disagree with is that the accusation of a sexual assault is not taken seriously. At the moment, I know that there is someone on my floor who ahs raped someone, and that he will probably get away scotch free. The legal system doesn't seem to care about the sexual assaults.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Considering I can not afford anything great at the moment, I got to have one of the poorer buildings. The only complaints I have is that the enforcer on my floor (CA) didn't enforce the rule of smoking in the rooms. The whole floor would stink like weed or cigarette smoke, and either she wasn't in her room or just didn't care. Other than that they were friendly, sometimes very snobby-like.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I've heard that the sororities are very cliquey and snobby (depends on which one you join). I would never join one, since my personality would clash, and I would be considered a loser among them. They say that they accept everyone, but it's actually just a popularity contest. My friend used to be among them, but she left because she didn't feel included with them, she felt like they were just mean girls.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Well Eastern has a great football program, but I do not really pay attention to the sports. I know that the club sports are very fun, and a lot of people can join. Lots of spirit for the football games.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Well, Eastern Washington University requires students to be passionate on what they are learning, and so the professors do not need to be approachable and care about their students success. My main complaint is the fact that we have these national standards to abide by before we graduate. I do not enjoy them because I can't connect to anyone of them. I am a creative mind, and I have an idea on what I want in my future. And what I want is not to be a scientist, to be a genius in the many philosophies in life, but just be an artist, or be something in some types of arts. If I could have a do-over, I would definitely go into an art school. My advisors have told me even in an art school, the same general studies are there. But talking to some art schools, I've learned there is less to follow. Of course there is still math and English in the art school, but they don't require all the insane amount of general studies the school I am going to does. I am still confused on what I want, and the advisers don't seem to be helping me, but are more concerned on how the school will make money. If I was a student who wanted to go into the science, math, and or teaching field, than this school would be perfect. I thought I could make a decision by the end of this year on what I want to do with life, but all the general studies I've done have just made me feel worthless and even more confused on what to do. In college you can't take classes you're interested in because you have to take out the classes all freshmen are supposed to take. I guess the purpose is to weed out the people who are not ready for the really world. But maybe my complaints shouldn't be taken seriously, since the art fields seem to be a joke. I believe in finding a job you enjoy, because the real purpose in life isn't about how smart you are, and not about how much money you make, but how happy you are. So art is my main purpose, and I can't get to it unless I transfer to an art school, which is expensive.

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%.

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

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.
