About Eastwick College

As you pass by classrooms, you’ll notice that they’re buzzing with activity: students are on their feet and working together, learning how to perform an echocardiogram, install an air conditioning and refrigeration unit, or assist in a simulated surgery. We haven’t done away with textbooks entirely, of course, but the emphasis is on taking the knowledge learned in those books and applying them in hands-on settings so that students are confident and capable in what they’ve learned. As a result, classrooms often look more like nursing laboratories, operating rooms, or construction zones, with students working with some of the same equipment and techniques they’ll use on the job.
