The Community

La Grande / Eastern Oregon

EOU’s 121-acre campus is located in La Grande, Oregon. The city is the largest of eight communities in the lush Grande Ronde Valley – a haven in the high desert region. You’ll love it here amid the tall pines, cold rivers and rugged cliffs. This is some of the very best wild country.

Campus is just four short blocks from downtown and students ride public transit for free making it easy to visit the La Grande Farmer’s Market held on weekends at Max Square. A musician with a huge local following may sit next to you in English class. Your roommate might be an intern assisting with research funded by the National Science Foundation or hail from the island of Palau. This can be you.

These are the kinds of opportunities that help you get ahead, and this level of individual attention is rare among public institutions. Experience it at EOU!

At our core we are committed to providing you with high-quality academic programs, awesome campus activities, access to education wherever you are, and an environment where you can live, learn and succeed.


La Grande's historic downtown offers many great coffee shop hangouts for studying, diverse dining options, and an active nightlife setting. Some student favorites worth checking out are:
  • GC Asian Fusion
  • JaxDog Cafe
  • Joe & Sugars

"Some say you make your best friends in college. For myself here at EOU, that couldn’t be any more true. Eastern has provided me with lifelong friends. It really is a family here. We truly care about each other. I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else."
