Step outside our back door and you’re snowboarding nearby at Oregon’s highest base elevation ski resort, kayaking Class III rapids, rock climbing or hitting the trails.


The Mountaineers are NAIA affiliated and teams make regular post-season games and national playoff appearances, competing in the Frontier and Cascade conferences.

Clubs and Involvement

Meet friends and make a difference by getting involved with activities sponsored by our more than 50 clubs and organizations created by students, for students.

The Community

Students attend the Eastern Oregon Film Festival at EOU

Campus is just four blocks from downtown La Grande and students ride public transit for free, making it easy to get to the farmer’s market, eateries, shops and theaters.

“I’m a mental health therapist and substance abuse counselor at Grande Ronde Recovery in La Grande. I received my bachelor’s degree from EOU in 2009, then enrolled in United States Peace Corps as a volunteer in Bulgaria. After returning home, I earned my master’s in social work. I plan to continue providing mental health and substance abuse services within our community, and I owe my success to the education and support I received at EOU, and the professors in both the sociology and anthropology programs.”
