3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't know what standards to go by. But they were ranked in the OVC for football last year. And in basketball, they made the tournament and almost took down Kansas a couple of years ago.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a couple of local places to go to. But mostly it is just chain restaurants and fast food. The good thing is that you can pretty much get food whenever you want if you go to EKU.

3 College Freshman

Administration: One bad thing I would point out is that EKU claims to be a smoke free campus, but doesn't enforce "no smoking". Kids just walk around smoking cigarettes everywhere.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: A lot of people go home on the weekends so there isn't always a lot going on.

College Freshman

Scholarships: Didn't apply for financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Considering all aspects, it is pretty good. There are a couple of really nice dorms on this campus. Most of the dorms are not great but aren't terrible either, and there is probably one or two terrible dorms.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had a few rude or uncaring professors, but the majority of my teachers have been great.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am now graduating, and have mostly enjoyed my experience on campus.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The truly "Greek" frat/sororities can be really rude about letting people in or letting the participate in their activities. They also do not like to include non-Greek fraternities and sororities, such as service sororities, in their activities.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There are decent sports programs but not many students go to watch

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: People seem to have pretty good luck finding off campus housing, but the University will not allow you to live off campus until you have earned 60 hours unless you live with your parent.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a wide variety of restaurants across money ranges and food choices.

3 College Senior

Administration: They have rules, which is understandable- every where does. However, if you get caught with even an empty wine bottle in your room AND you are over the legal drinking age, you get in trouble with the University and have to take alcohol resuscitation classes as if you are an alcoholic. They offer appeals processes for most sanctions, but students rarely, if ever, get taken seriously at their appeals, and they do not get approved- even for parking tickets.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I got lucky- I got an automatic scholarship based on my high school GPA and ACT scores. However, I know many people who struggle to pay, and the administrative offices such as housing and financial aid can often be difficult to get a hold of if you need something.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Most of the students at EKU party but I was never interested. Most of the parties were hosted by fraternities, who had really creepy or weird rules about getting in (you couldn't bring your boyfriend, had to bring X amount of girls with you per boys). A lot of people go home over the weekend.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Downstairs Powell is your best bet for consistent food choices, but can get overcrowded at peak meal times. Upstairs Powell often has terrible food choices, or the quality of food (texture, heating, availability) is very poor, yet they require freshman to keep a minimum meal plan to eat on campus food. Eating at smaller satellite restaurants such as Cuisine or Einsteins can help break up the monotony.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are in pretty dilapidated shape, with the exception of the new ones that are being built. Some places have had broken sinks or stall doors missing off of toilets for several years and were never repaired for three years running, to my knowledge. The hot water is also hit and miss, even in the newer buildings- it seems to have trouble regulating its temperature, and will intermittently scald or freeze you.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Depends on what side of richmond you choose to live.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: not alot of traffic when moving along campus to get to destination.

3 College Senior

Administration: have some problems contacting the administration at times when needed.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Not alot of scholarships for minorities to choose from

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I choose not to party I prefer working on my studies

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Good at times but also not consistent in the choices

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Only sent a year on campus at eastern Kentucky university before moving off camput

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.

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.
