5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love EKU! I came here because it was the only reasonable place I could go for my major. Once I started going here I realized how much I loved EKU. You have to be involved though because a lot of people go home on the weekend. Getting involved will help you meet people and give you stuff to do on the weekend!

Overall Experience: Eastern Kentucky University was a great choice for me. It's an ideal location for me and it's big enough to compete with the larger universities but small enough where you're not just a number. There's always something for you to do around campus. It's an all around great school!

Overall Experience: I haven't started yet, however I'm sure it will be blast from what I heard. Eastern Kentucky was located perfectly for me. I have lived in Lexington my whole life and though EKU is only 40 minutes away, it will still be close enough for me to go home at time but also keep me away and let me start a new adventure somewhere else.

Overall Experience: I love the atmosphere and look of the campus. It has a small town feel but is still a bigger size, too. Though a lot of construction currently, they are working on making it more modern for current and future students. I would choose this school all over again because I feel at home here. I do have issues, such as the new student fee and some administration topics. However, I love most people in my particular department (education) because they are fairly nice and respectful of what you want to get out of college.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Eastern Kentucky University. I have met friends that I hope to have the rest of my life. The dorms are nice, small but still Rooney enough. There is something to do on campus constantly, whether it's s'mores by Powell, or tie dying tshirts, there is never a dull moment.

Administration: I would much rather be allowed to have someone over anytime during the week and they be able to stay. We're choosing our career dor the rest of our lives but we're not allowed to have someone stay with us during the week. Dorm rooms getting lonely sometimes. Other than that most people are rather easy going.

The teachers serve as mentors, educators, and friends and are very approachable. The university provides so much opportunity to any student interested. I would recommend the university to anyone serious about getting a good education.

Campus Quality: Living on campus has been very good for me. I have been an RA for the last three years so I know a lot about living and working on campus. There are so many things to do on and off campus if you really look. There are so many different places to study, work, walk and relax. I love going to the different campus events throughout the year. Always something to do. The ravine is a great place to study, hangout and relax.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
