“Eastern Oregon University offers a holistic approach to student engagement, including passionate faculty, supportive staff, and multiple flexible course and degree options. This created an environment of success, resulting in tangible benefits that go beyond a degree: growth in self-awareness, further appreciation of diversity, a drive to continue learning, and a passion to pay it forward. Through the support of my family and opportunity from EOU, I was able to earn my Bachelor of Science degree online – a reality I did not imagine possible in my rural community.”
