President’s Welcome

Dr. Richard Patterson - Interim President of Eastern Wyoming CollegeWelcome to Eastern Wyoming College!

We’re a small college that serves a huge area: our main campus is in Torrington, we have a branch campus in Douglas, and outreach sites located in 6 Wyoming counties.  Our service area is 16,507 square miles.  That’s bigger than Rhode Island, Delaware, or Connecticut!

Founded in 1948, we’re a traditional college with a modern campus, new student housing, and great athletic teams.  We have small classes, excellent facilities, and the best academic and vocational programs and faculty in the region.  A new 69,000 square foot Career and Technical Education Center will open in 2017 and a new agricultural facility is in the final planning stage. Both will allow for program growth and expansion.  We also have numerous student clubs, as well as service and honors organizations, and abundant student activities.

Our student and support services are second to none.  Year after year, students and their families tell us how friendly they are. Whether you’re looking for a place to help you prepare for success at a four-year college or university, learn a skill or trade, or just move into the next phase of your life, you’ll find EWC is good fit for you.

Even if you don’t fit the traditional student mold, we’re still the place for you!  If you’re a high school student looking to jump-start your education, a single parent, a returning veteran, a person working full-time in your career, or the first in your family to attend college, we can meet your needs and support you along the way.  We excel in starts and restarts.  Focused programs, student support services, concurrent and dual enrollment, and outstanding on-line education are all here to meet your needs and fit your schedule.

Helping you reach your goals is what EWC is all about. You’ll find we’re a great partner for the journey.
