I became a distinguishable student right away at The John Marshall Law School. Many classes that I had taken at East-West turned out to be very helpful.

Joi Lyons

B.A. in English and Communication

I will never forget the care of my professors in the quality of courses and their genuine care for my well-being.

Melody Johnson

B.A. in English and Communication

After graduation, I published two books. I've had poems published in literary journals, and short stories featured in anthologies since.

Fidel Love

B.A. in English and Communication

I thought being a transfer student would feel awkward because I was a “new student” again. But that was not the case; I felt very welcomed by both staff and student body. I can proudly say that choosing to attend East-West is a decision I do not regret making.

Tiffany Mendez

B.A. in English and Communication

One of the most amazing things that I have seen at East-West is the culture. It’s very strong and collective. Students help one another and everyone knows everyone.
