A Note from the Editor

Tell us what you think and enter to win an EWU Bookstore gift card.

It’s been four years since I took the helm as editor of Eastern magazine and it’s been four years since our last readers’ survey. It’s time to check in with you and see how we’re doing.

We’ve recently made several changes to the magazine’s design, paper, size and number of pages, while trying to keep the content relevant and interesting.

Whether you’re a regular reader of the print issues or prefer to read the magazine online, you’re hearing from us on a regular basis, but we’d like to make this a two-way conversation. What do you like and what, if anything, would you like to see changed in Eastern magazine?

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey (BUTTON ON THE TOP LEFT SIDE of this website). It should take less than 10 minutes to complete and your answers are confidential, so don’t worry about being diplomatic – just be honest.

If you cannot complete the survey online, or prefer to receive a copy of the survey in the mail, please call me at 509.359.6422 and I’ll send you one.

There is an incentive to participate: if you choose to give us contact information, separate from the answers to your questions, we will include you in a drawing to win one of four $25 gift cards to EWU’s Bookstore.

We are also surveying a random sample of alumni to increase the number of responses, so don’t be surprised if you get an email asking for you to complete the survey.

Thank you for your feedback. I’ll share the survey’s results with you in an upcoming issue of Eastern magazine. Until then, happy reading!
