“Going to EOU as an online student has been such a rad experience. EOU has a Military/Veteran online advisor that is prior military and can honestly relate to the struggles of going to school while actively serving, or transitioning to a civilian. I have gotten so much support from Eastern Oregon University, I wish I lived in Oregon!”
