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

“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!”
