We want every aspect of your experience with Eastern to be a great one. That’s why we go beyond the classroom to pair you up with our team of specialists who will help you succeed during school and when you’ve graduated. Our Employment Specialists will continue to work with you after graduation to ensure that you’re finding success and the career you’ve studied so hard for.
Throughout the year we also hold numerous events both on and off campus, including Orientation and Graduation, that will allow you to grow and develop relationships with your peers as well as the Eastern staff and faculty.
Below is a sampling of some of what we offer – be sure to contact your Campus Director if you have any questions or would like to learn more about our services.
Events and Community Involvement
All throughout the year, our campuses hold numerous activities and events to engage both the students and staff, as well as to raise money and awareness for important causes. This engagement allows our students and staff to develop deeper connections and helps form bonds and create memories that will last a lifetime. Among other things, you can expect to see: bake sales, theme days, pumpkin carving contests, BBQs, video game events, dress-up days, and much more.
Maybe you’ve got a great idea as well! Make a suggestion to your Campus Director or lead the charge yourself – at Eastern, we’re all about empowering our students to make the best decisions for themselves both personally and professionally.
Do you have questions about student loans? Your different funding options? At some point, we all need help figuring out how the money breaks down and what our options are. That’s why we have a specialized team of Financial Aid Officers whose sole job is to help you answer questions about how to navigate the world of student financials. You can book an appointment at any time to see a Financial Aid Advisor at your campus. You can also visit our Financial Aid information pages on this site for more information. With Eastern, you’ll get the help you need when you need it. It’s what we’re here for.
Career Preparation and Assistance
Do you have an idea about what you want to do, but are unsure of how to go about it? Maybe it’s just been a while since you crafted a polished, professional resume. That’s OK - in fact, it’s a lot more common than you might think. We provide all of our students and graduates with access to enormously helpful resources and career-related materials. We also facilitate career-related workshops and provide you with information on upcoming events in your area. We have individuals who have trained specifically to help you craft a better resume, a killer cover letter, and a stunning portfolio. We also make and maintain active relationships with employers in your community so that we can link prospective employers up with our students and graduates. And you always know that Eastern has the most up-to-date information on the industries that we both work with and teach. That’s part of our commitment to you.
Just because you’ve graduated doesn’t mean your relationship with Eastern ends. Our graduates and alumni are a huge part of the Eastern family and always will be. We’re like proud parents. As we watch each of our students grow and flourish during their time in our schools, we remain just as excited to be a part of your lives once you have left our halls and moved into the working world.
