“I really liked taking a college class at EOU because I discovered what it was like to be a college student. I am interested in becoming a psychologist and EOU allowed me to take a college level psychology class. I think taking a class at EOU, while still in high school, is a brilliant thing to do. You earn college credits while still in high school, prepare yourself on how a college class works, and begin planning for college early because you know what to expect.”
