The Easterner Mission

The mission of The Easterner is to inform the students, faculty, staff and nearby residents of Eastern Washington University of the governance, activities and views of the campus while providing a learning environment for students interested in journalism and related fields.

The Easterner is the student-led, student-run news organization on the campus of Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington. During the school year, we print weekly, but update our website various times throughout the week.
