Leslie Cicero began at Reid Elementary in 1986 when she interviewed for a position as a kindergarten teacher. When she did her undergraduate degree at Eastern, Dr. Robert Reid, who the school is named after, was one of her professors. Cicero now teaches in the same room in which she learned to be a teacher.
Spring quarter 2009 marks the end of a partnership to maintain Reid Elementary established 51 years ago between Eastern Washington University and the Cheney School District (CSD). Since 1958 EWU has paid the facility operating costs while the CSD has provided the elementary school’s curriculum and staff.
Members of Eastern Washington University’s diversity associations had the opportunity to voice their opinions concerning rumors of a possible merger into one organization March 12.

The class evaluations that students have the option of filling out at the end of each quarter provide a chance to give constructive feedback to Eastern on its academic progress. These forms play a role in how classes are taught, as well as the tenure and promotion of professors.
Eastern students may, at some point in their college experience, deal with Parking Services, whether by purchasing a parking pass, buying time at a meter or paying a parking ticket. These sources brought in about $650,000 last year, with most of the money funneled back into funding for parking services.
