“Taking a college class at Eastern Oregon University is a wonderful experience and a great way to gain new knowledge about EOU itself. EOU gives a great opportunity to pick classes you are interested in and is a good way to start thinking about what you want to study when you attend college. Even better, it was an opportunity to get both high school credit and college credit at the same time. My transcripts reflect that I took a college class in high school and I can show that when applying to universities after high school. EOU also offers help for students. If you need help on a writing assignment EOU has tutors. I took a Psychology class, which was a great experience. This class can help to earn credit towards my future career as a social worker.”
