A Full College Experience


If you think going to class is the only thing you'll be involved with, think again! Living in the residence halls puts you in the middle of campus activities and events, music and theatrical performances, and athletic competitions - all for free. And the parking is, too! You'll enjoy delicious meals with friends in Gila Hank's Cafe - where you'll plan your next outing to enjoy the natural treasures of the Gila Valley, like hiking Mt. Graham, the highest peak in southern Arizona.

I chose EAC because of the price. I will be going to a four-year university after EAC and the College has been incredible in helping me map out classes I need to take to reach my end goal.
