Kyle recently wrote us:“I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed taking your classes at EOU… Earning a History degree at EOU was a great experience, and I am thankful that I had a great group of professors who inspired and prepared me to pursue the subject at the next level. I hope to someday earn my PhD and have a chance to teach at the University level as well, and if I succeed, I will no doubt look to the time when I was an undergraduate at EOU as a reference. I’m just glad that I’ve made a step in that direction at this point, and I can’t thank you enough for the education, time, and support that helped make me a graduate student.”
Deneil Hill (2010) a graduate student in History at SUNY-Binghamton, got in touch recently:“Graduating from the history department at Eastern Oregon University provided me with a solid foundation on which I could build my future career. Not only did the program teach me skills that are now vital as I continue my education, it taught me important skills for life. The faculty taught me diverse histories from a variety of cultures and perspectives, as well as the importance of those histories to me in the present. The small class sizes allowed for more personalized attention from professors who truly care about the success of each one of their students. They helped me to reach and exceed my expectations of myself.”
