Eastern Washington University is a regional, comprehensive public university located in Cheney, Wash., with programs also offered in Bellevue, Everett, Kent, Seattle, Shoreline, Spokane, Tacoma, Vancouver and Yakima. Eastern is a driving force for the culture, economy and vitality of the Inland Northwest region. The university's beautiful campus, NCAA Division I athletics and opportunities for hands-on, real-world learning provide a classic, yet unique college experience. A focus on personal attention, faculty excellence and community collaboration allows Eastern to accomplish its mission for preparing well-rounded students ready to hit the ground running in their chosen career fields. Connections Eastern's 300-acre parklike campus is just 17 miles from Washington's second largest city, Spokane. However, it is a matter of minutes from more than 20 lakes, beautiful mountains and the Turnbull National Wildlife refuge; all of which offer fishing, hiking, biking, boating, wildlife watching and more. This unique geographic positioning allows students the serenity to focus on their studies, the spirit of a small college town, the recreational opportunities of the Northwest and the invaluable internship opportunities and civic involvement offered by a major metropolitan area. It's no wonder more than 10,000 students (and counting) now make Eastern their home away from home.
