4 College Senior

Majors: I have not had an internship but I do plan on getting one at another school. Hopefully I can get it and it will be an excellent experience.

3 College Senior

Administration: I think it's really normal. They enforce polices when they can. Some policies are not enforced, such as the no smoking ban. People still smoke around here.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There's not a lot of options on campus but there are more off campus. But for the cost-effective student, it can be affordable if you go to a fast food restaurant like McDonalds or Taco Bell

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It was easy and great to get into the school. The professors that I've had so far were wonderful, especially since I changed my major. Class sizes are small since it's a small concentration but it's wonderful overall.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm not a Greek person but I know it has a presence here on campus. You can apply to many different chapters and there are dorms dedicated to greek.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is greater for men than women.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The school is strict when it comes to attendance. I believe that it should be this way because it helps to prepare you for the real world and working experience. If the professors were lenient, then there would be less effort being put into attending classes and trying to better themselves in their everyday life.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It's kind of a struggle getting into the program of education. There's a long list of classes that you have to take and they fill up very fast. It would be somewhat better if the classes had more availability than what they do. I recommend signing up for classes as soon as open registration is available.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel somewhat safe on campus. We have a great police department on campus and state police close by as well. I would feel safer if there was a way for the campus police to be able to patrol more frequently then what they do.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: This town is mainly for food and not for shopping. The mall is basically empty!

Party Scene: There are mainly parties that only involve alcohol. It would be nice to see non-alcoholic parties for students to make friends around things they have in common and not just because they are intoxicated.

Off-Campus Dining: We have plenty of restaurants to choose from. It would just be nicer to see them give discounts and to be a little cheaper on their prices. We are college students after all!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A lot of my friends are trying to do internships for education. The only problem is that it fills up to quick. Plenty of students get their internship done at Model, which makes it easier for campus students because they don't have to travel as far.

Athletics: The athletes in all departments are amazing! There is a lot of support from the students at every event!

4 College Freshman

Administration: They don't want you to do anything that would get you hurt, but they also want to make sure you know why they have the rules in the first place.

Campus Food: The variety is limited after your first month on campus. Once you settle into a routine, it is not that bad.

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.
