3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I don't notice much about the guys and girls but feel as if they are average and pretty much just like me. They go to class or they skip. They join clubs or they create clubs. They make friends or enemies. There's nothing special or different about them.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Greek life at EKU is very popular and known, so a lot of students join. There are fraternity parties, as well as athlete parties, just like any other college. As far as students looks, I'd say they're just normal students going to class.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: While there are a lot of rude and unaccepting people on campus, there are infinitely more people who are very kind and very inclusive. I'm part of leadership in the Alphabet Center, an organization made to help people in the LGBTQIA+ community feel accepted and give them somewhere to go if they don't have anywhere else to turn. The people I've talked to, even just asking for directions, are always very polite, and they are as helpful as they can be.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: theres a wide variety of people on campus and its not hard to find people who share your interest.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: A lot of guys seem only into sex/partying.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

It’s really difficult to describe the average EKU student. Southern hospitality is not dead here, but the typical vision of a country hick definitely does not apply. Students here are friendly and tend to get along with others. Friendships are easily made within the dorms or classrooms. While the guy-to-girl ratio is off balance, it just means that guys have some more options in dating. This ratio is pretty common in colleges today, so it’s not surprising to see it here.

Students really vary in their sexuality. There is a strong religious presence on campus, as well as a party scene. While some students remain reserved in regards to sex, others go out and hook up. Nothing is really in anyone’s face, and everyone is generally accepting of students’ sexual practices. No matter what type of sex life you want to have in college, it can be found here.

Birth Control Available?
The Student Health Services Building offers students free condoms, as well as information on different types of birth control.

They visit campus on Mondays in Suite 103 of the Rowlett Building in the middle of campus.

Social Scene
People at EKU are really friendly. It's not uncommon to have conversations with people you don't know well. People like to do a variety of things, from Ultimate Frisbee to partying to hanging out while playing games or watching movies.
Hookups or Relationships?
The relationship status of students really depends on the circle you run with. Some students are more comfortable hooking up with random people, while others prefer serious relationships. On campus you see a lot of both and everything in between. There is a lot of variety in dating at EKU. If you're looking to go out and hook up, you can find it, but if you're looking for something serious, you can find that, too.
Dress Code
Students dress pretty casual here. At class or lunch, you see a variety from pajamas to business casual, but most students just wear jeans and a shirt to classes or lunch. Students might wear something a little more flashy to a party or when going out, but it's still not anything fancy like a cocktail dress. Styles range from country to hip-hop and everything in between. Just dress in your own style, and you're sure to find others with similar taste.
