Our EOU Community

Great value, awesome experience

Eastern Oregon University’s small size, safe campus and scenic beauty make it a special place for students from every part of the world! Our professors and staff are dedicated to helping you succeed, and with fewer than 30 students in each class, you will benefit from working directly with our highly qualified teaching faculty. Our international tuition is the lowest out of all universities in Oregon, so you are guaranteed a great value for your education.

Get to know your peers and share your stories through the International Student Association.

Connect with resources and travel information, program and employment options, and campus activities through our International Student Services.

Our community is a safe place! Students know and trust our 24/7 security services staff.

Have the best college experience possible living in our top-notch, suite-style residence halls with dining options that are delish.

Arts and Culture

We showcase the work of artists, authors and filmmakers with events all year, so there’s always something to do – and create!

The Outdoors

The Mountaineers are NAIA affiliated and teams make regular post-season games and national playoff appearances, competing in the Frontier and Cascade conferences.

Clubs and Organizations

Meet friends and make a difference by getting involved with activities sponsored by our more than 50 clubs and organizations created by students, for students.

The Community

Campus is just four blocks from downtown La Grande and students ride public transit for free, making it easy to get to the farmer’s market, eateries, shops and theaters.

Students from around the world are attending Eastern Oregon University and three of them are sharing why they love being a Mountaineer. From great food and comfortable housing to superior faculty support and outdoor adventure, EOU can be your “home away from home.”

“I lived 9 months in eastern Oregon and I got the opportunity to see biggest cities and how people are over there but in La Grande I’ve met wonderful people, simple, friendly and humble. I never felt like I was not part of the community either at EOU or in La Grande, people didn’t hesitate to help me. People never judged me and I always felt safe which is very important as a foreigner.
At the university first of all I really liked the teachers who are very close to you, you can communicate with them easily they are always happy to help when you have issues and they ask you questions to learn about your culture. So I loved that they were so open-minded, learning our culture without any judgements. Plus we were with the american students in the same class and they helped us and considered us as their equal.”

“I love EOU because of the amazing people who work here and the way they have their door always open for you if you have a problem. It is a very nice campus with small a class size and amazing teachers. Outside of class there are so many activities you can do that overall it’s been an amazing experience here!”
