Eastern's campus offers a multitude of resources and services entirely dedicated toward student success. Review the information below to learn how to get the most out of your time as a Mountaineer.
Virtual New Student Orientation
Welcome, Mountaineers! Eastern Oklahoma State College’s New Student Orientation program has moved online. While we will miss seeing you in person, we have created a virtual orientation program to cover the topics you would have received in person.
The following videos will address topics you need to know about at Eastern, including tutoring, campus safety, college life, financial aid and scholarships, the Library, and how to access your EOSC email, Self Service and Blackboard. Please take a moment to watch each video and review the New Student Orientation Handbook linked below to familiarize yourself with life at Eastern.
The media center, located on the second and third floors of the Bill H. Hill Library Building in the center of campus, is truly a hub for information, technology, research, and pleasurable reading for Eastern students and staff. The media center's collection has over 38,000 books in open stacks, and it subscribes to over 200 magazines and newspapers available to students in a comfortable reading area. The collection features an impressive number of materials concerning Native American culture and history.
When doing research, a student can use the computer lab which is set up to search through electronic media. The computers are part of the Internet system through EOSC-Net, and are also equipped with access to such indexes as ERIC, Magazine Index, and CINAHL. Since the media center's card catalog is fully automated, research is easy. A student may even search for sources the library has through the computers in the dorms or from anywhere on campus with a laptop and Eastern's wireless connection services.
Another helpful feature of the media center is its Career Center. The materials in this area can assist students in choosing majors, careers, and future colleges to attend. This collection of information is on the east end of the second floor.
The media center is accessible to persons with disabilities. An elevator on the first floor of the building is readily available to bring students up to the library. The media center also includes computer tables at the correct height for wheelchairs, cassette recordings, and other materials needed.
The media center boasts of an interesting collection of art, most from former Eastern students. Some of the artists include Merlin Littlethunder, Connie Seabourn, Susan Thomas Reed, Teresa Terrell, Pam Kirkes and Anita Caldwell Jackson.
The media center is open 70 hours a week, Sunday afternoons through Friday afternoons. Summer hours do change. The professional staff, which includes two media specialists with masters in Library Science, are eager to help students at any time.
Eastern's Bookstore is located right in the front doors of the Tourtellotte Student Center, opposite of the Post Office. Eastern has partnered with the Texas Book Company to manage and operate the store. Personnel typically travel to each campus location at the beginning of the semester to sell books, and again at the end of the semester for book buyback.
Eastern Oklahoma State College's Placement Office provides graduates and current students with job information and assistance in finding positions related to specific academic preparation and personal qualifications. An up-to-date listing of temporary, part-time and full-time job vacancies from businesses, private industry, and social services and government agencies is posted on a "Jobs Board", which is accessible to current students, graduates and the community.
The Placement Office provides assistance with resume writing, interviewing tips and other job-seeking skills, as well as schedules on-campus interviews with businesses, federal/state agencies and public schools. The Placement Office also assists employers in locating qualified persons to fill vacancies in their organizations. Faculty members are extremely involved in locating the most qualified applicant for the vacancy.
Students are encouraged to register with the Placement Office so they will be notified of job openings relating to their chosen fields.
