“The transition from Treasure Valley Community College to Eastern Oregon University was simple and easy. I was grateful for the fact that they are on the same schedule as far as terms, as well as when the school year starts and finishes, so I was able to adjust much easier. I am also appreciative of the helpful staff and the quick responses I got when it came to questions I had.”
