March 15, 2017 – 3 Point Contest


EAST-WEST UNIVERSITY PRESENTS Marching into March Madness 3 Point Shootout March 15, 2017 5 pm – 7 pm   WINNER ANGEL GUZMAN 24 points – 1 Min High School Prospect

As East-West graduate, I truly believe the courses helped me cultivate a solid foundation that has assisted me in my day-to-day activities.

Maria Silva-Young Student, class of 2012

I will never forget my time at East-West University and the care of my professors in the quality of courses and their genuine care for my well-being. I am still reaching into my experiences there, in my current personal and professional life. One thing I took away from East-West is the cultivation of studying ancient and world  literature, which I believe provides perspectives of human history that are often taken for granted. I also truly believe that the English and Communications Degree Program is one of the most unique and I could not have asked for a better higher educational foundation.

Melody Johnson Student, Class of 2008

My four years spent at East-West University was an exciting and enriching experience. I walked through the doors my freshman year ready to make changes in my life and with a serious commitment to my education; I knew EWU was the right place for me. I remember being early for class, waiting quietly in the hall and listening attentively to some professors’ lectures, feeling eager to one day register for their classes.
