Welcome to a New Chapter!
If your parents or guardians didn’t attend a four-year college or complete a bachelor’s degree, you’re a first-generation college student. You’re not alone, and you belong at EWU! In fact, first-generation college students make up 44% of all your classmates at EWU. So if you don’t know what a “registrar” or “provost” is, or if you don’t understand how college homecoming is different than high school spirit week, you are not the only one. At EWU you’re with peers who share similar experiences and backgrounds.
Because EWU is home to so many first-generation students, we’ve created a welcoming campus and an environment full of resources to help you succeed. Get ready to make new friends, connect with faculty, and start your career path.
