Don't go here.

There is no way you can call the CS program computer science. The masters program doesn't even come close to covering what a proper BS should.

For an example: automata is not required but GUI programming is(Swing!?!?!?!?!?!?!). What a joke. They advertise a game design program but have zero game design experience. All they have is a third rate graphics program taught by 1 prof who taught himself graphics over a summer. The most rigorous prof got denied tenure!

There is no research here, only a small amount of projects that were solved in the 80's and they try to pass off as cutting edge.

Funding is limited to being forced to teach worthless computer lit courses and all you get in return is a partial tuition waver and a tiny stipend. You will be in massive debt when you leave EWU, no matter what your field.

The campus is run down and dirt poor. Just plain ugly. The 'cutting edge' labs are 7 year old computers. Cheney and Spokane are depressed little towns that are stuck in the 50's. but not in a good way. There is nothing to do here and no jobs.

Most of the faculty are nice, but face it. If they were good they would not be at EWU. Even though they have no required research they are hard to get even 5 minutes with. They are busy, but what they are doing is a mystery. None of them do research, not one of them does anything more than read off powerpoints, so it is a great mystery as to why they are so freaking busy.
