Design | We Create.

Looking for a reason to go to college?

Find peace and purpose in the design program. Open to something new, challenging, and eye-opening? Eastern is a launchpad for unthought possibilities.

In the design program, you’ll be encouraged to make and learn from mistakes—many, many mistakes. The challenge: get uncomfortable and discover opportunities that make life interesting.
