My experience at Eastern was a very positive one; I had good professors and I enjoyed the small atmosphere that opened for discussion in the class room.

Joanne, Norway – Class of 2011, Magna cum laude, Major: Biology
Joanne is currently enrolled in Graduate School, studying Biohazardous Threat Agents and Emerging Infectious Diseases at Georgetown University (Washington D.C., U.S.A.)

Eastern provided me with a solid foundation in the biological sciences which included both practical and theoretical experiences. It also gave me the opportunity to participate and become a part of a great social environment. I left Eastern knowing that I would succeed, as I now had acquired even more quintessential life skills that are key to the success in both the professional work – and academic worlds.
