President's Welcome

2020 is a very surreal year which has tested our abilities to adapt to the influence of COVID-19.  It has required all of us to change behaviors and take precautions to protect ourselves and our family members.   We are witnessing many changes to our routines and way of life, however what remains constant is Eastern’s resolve to provide access to educational opportunities.

As we prepare for a new academic year, I want to assure new and returning students our commitment to ensure your safety and comfort.   The College will practice social distancing on campus, require masks in public areas and classrooms and implement strict cleaning protocols.

Eastern remains an affordable choice to pursue educational opportunities providing flexible options that include hybrid and online classes.   I want to encourage students to avoid taking a gap year during the pandemic.   Do not permit the Corona virus to steal your educational goals, instead consider a mix of hybrid and online classes that are affordable, accessible and many that are transferable.   To show support and commitment, Eastern will waive fees associated with online fall classes.   Pursuing your educational goals should not be a burden, but instead an adventure that leads to new opportunities.

Eastern is a small institution and that is an asset.   You will not be exposed to large gatherings and crowded classrooms, but instead experience faculty and staff who are interested in your safety, comfort and success!
