Most universities' Enrollment Services web sites will highlight growth in enrollment, and we are certainly proud of our achievements. You can browse recent enrollment data in the resources sections to the left of the page. However, we would rather highlight one of our many student success stories. We are much more than numbers and recognize that each student has their own story. We simply want to help you write yours.
Being a first generation college student isn't easy. Planning out financial aid, picking a residence hall and meal plan, signing up for classes-it can all be a blur. But the services and people at EWU helped me become a successful and knowledgeable student, and they've provided me the skills the abilities to reach my goals in the future.
Because of my dedication and the dedication of the staff and professors here to help me, I will graduate spring 2014 with a degree in communications (public relations) and a double minor in business administration and psychology. I'll also have a leadership certificate.
I came to Eastern for many reasons, but I fell in love with Eastern because it truly became my home. My professors, my friends and my community make life here at EWU not just another college experience, but the best college experience I could have ever imagined.
