“As a full-time working professional, taking classes online was the best option for my busy schedule. EOU’s remarkable staff made my transition seamless and the instructors challenged me to succeed.

“I was such a lost soul before meeting my advisor. I had minimal educational credits and tons of life experience to present, but I needed a path. As a mother and wife, being able to continue my job and maintaining that connection with the regional center was just what I needed. Whether it was a phone call or emailing back and forth with faculty, onsite courses, weekend learning or just lending an ear, EOU was the best fit for me.”

“Before I was accepted to EOU, I was attending a different college and EOU is by far much more accommodating. As an online student, you will find yourself challenged, yet not over burdened with unnecessary work that doesn’t benefit you. EOU has proven to be a fantastic choice for my family and myself”

When my job ended, I was in a great position to finish a bachelor’s degree in business since I had been pursuing it on my own time. Now I have a better chance of successfully returning to the workforce. If you are thinking about taking online classes, do it!”
