5 College Sophomore

Majors: Fire, Arson, and Explosion Investigation- Best school for my major, they have Tom Thurman as the head of the department and could not have chosen a more educated, brilliant man. Guy wrote the book on the investigation side of explosions and solved the Pan Am flight bombing. No other university's program can touch EKU's. Career goals is to work under the Arson Unit for the FBI or work for the Office of the State Fire Marshals.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Would definitely live here after college if I could find the right job, great, safe, and clean community with amazing scenery.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are just like everything else, small and cramped but everyone usually has to suffer through it. Greek Towers or an apartment are your best bets.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I only use my laptop so I can't say much here. WiFi is just as bad as any other school really.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Pretty solid variety, all expensive though except for your fast-food chains.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's all about intramurals, we have just as big as crowd as normal sports sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: If you drink and party, it's perfect. If not, you have bowling or the movies or a little drive to Lexington for more of an option.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Wind makes it very chilly, otherwise its general midwest weather

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Pretty diverse, and everyone mixes really well. Would not recommend announcing you are a liberal though, just a word to the wise.

Academics: Brand new building for the Justice and Safety Department, best program in the nation if I had to guess.

Eastern has a lot to offer students and prepares them for their future careers through various new programs, technologies, and real world experiences. A lot of the programs require field work to obtain a degree, which helps the student get acclimated to their future career.

The rigor of the University is also becoming more challenging, with a goal of preparing students with writing intensive requirements and new standards in all classrooms. Students are seeing more writing assignments, projects to promote creativity, and advanced communication skills. This is all part of EKU’s initiative to promote more effective thinkers. Here professors know your name, and it is rare to have a class with more than 25 people. EKU prides itself on its small class size and individual attention to students. At EKU, you truly are more than just a number.
