LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – A national college guide has named Eastern Oregon University to its new list of 2015 Public Colleges of Distinction.

To be included, schools must excel at four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes. In addition, all of the Public Colleges of Distinction feature smaller class sizes, enlist faculty that are more attentive to individual students, and excel at getting students ready for the job market or graduate programs. They also come out on top when it comes to affordability. With lower tuition for in-state residents, public colleges like EOU are a great value.

High school college counselors and educators nominate institutions for inclusion and Colleges of Distinction evaluates each using a combination of qualitative and quantitative research, looking beyond rankings and test scores to find colleges that are the ideal places to learn, grow and succeed.

Colleges of Distinction provides dynamic college profiles and search tools for students, parents and counselors. The website includes tips from high school guidance counselors, essays from college students, presidents and other members of campus communities.
