Campus Visits

Visiting Eastern Oregon University

Setting foot on our beautiful campus located in the heart of the Grande Ronde Valley is a great way to see what it is like to be a Mountaineer.  We encourage prospective students and their families to visit, as a part of the college search process to get a sense of fit.  During the visit, students will get a chance to learn more about the high quality academic programs, tour campus, and meet several staff and faculty members that make EOU a great place to invest in your education.  We offer visits throughout most of the year, connect with our Campus Visit Coordinator to learn more about visiting La Grande.

Register For A Visit

Each season has it’s benefits to visiting.  During the Fall the region and campus is breathtaking with the changing leaves and you can pair your visit with a fall sporting event.  Winter is a great time for those looking to play in the snow or catch an EOU theater productionAnthony Lakes Mountain Resort is only 45 miles away and several other snow parks for outdoor recreation surround the Grande Ronde Valley.  Springtime the temperatures begin to rise and students spend time exploring the rivers, lakes, and Mount Emily Recreation Area (MERA).  There are also several local festivals to take in.

We do recommend scheduling your visit during the academic year so you can get a feel for what it’s like when classes are in session.  We offer a 60 minute campus tour and meetings with admissions, financial aid, and advising to help get you started.  During the summer months we only offer the 9:30 am visit.

Please contact Trisha Harshberger at or 541.962.3183 if you need assistance scheduling your visit.
