Joey Grosjacques EOU integrative studies major

“I have been going to EOU for a few years now as an online student. After graduating from BMCC with my associate degree in 2013, I landed a great full-time job and became very involved with the community, which made it hard to leave my hometown of Pilot Rock. I began taking classes full-time, but was not sure if I would like it or not. After a term I realized how much I loved being an online student. The professors made my online classes feel like a normal class by engaging with students through Canvas. I worried about not getting interaction as an online student, but that quickly passed because of how the classes were run. I love the freedom of being an online student the most. It fits my busy work schedule; I am able to attend multiple board meetings without having to worry about missing class. But I was still able to participate in the full college experience. In fall 2015 I went on a study abroad program to Costa Rica to study international business and it was amazing. I went into the trip only knowing Professor Gow, and left the trip with many new friends. EOU has been a great experience for me as an online student.”
