“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. Even though the tuition is already very affordable, there were many scholarship opportunities that helped me finance my education. I had such a positive experience that I decided to continue my education with EOU’s MBA program this fall.”– Lacey Towers, 2016; Student Programs and Social Media Coordinator, Treasure Valley Community College; Ontario, Oregon
