Health & Safety: There are police on campus all hours and even a app you can get if you ever feel unsafe and a police can pick you up and take you back to your dorm, generally i feel safe but anywhere you go you should still go in pairs.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The quality of EKU, in terms of the courses offered and the professors, is exemplary. In addition to the general education and major requirements, the university offers a wide variety of interesting classes to help students build their critical thinking skills. For students seeking placement in the Honors college, there are even more! Undergraduate classes that are available as electives range from political science/statistics hybrid courses to courses that focus on the relationship between the mind and body, and so much more. Regardless of the class subject, I have found in my experience, that professors always show a genuine enthusiasm for the courses taught and a sincere passion for their students' success, regardless of the size of the class -- be it a class of under ten students or over fifty.

Overall Experience: Depending in the chosen field of undergraduates at EKU, there are a variety of graduate school networking options available. Not all four-year degrees will require graduate studies for students to pursue career endeavors straight out of college, but for those needing additional education, the faculty mentors are always delighted to guide them in the right direction. Organizations such as the McNairs Scholars Program prepare students for careers emphasizing research by offering GRE prep courses and practice GRE tests, funding for independent research and learning materials, and general education on proper academic etiquette and technique. For students not involved in such programs, there are required and elective classes available which will prepare them for continued studies following the earning of a four-year degree. The opportunities for career development at EKU are numerous.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Neither I or any of my friends or acquaintances have ever had a problem with safety on campus. However, there has been at least one incident of robbery over the past year. There was a prompt campus-wide email sent to students and faculty following the event. Campus administration is adamant about providing useful advice on ways to avoid potentially dangerous situations involving crime. Students are encouraged to walk in groups in the late evening and night, and multiple emergency telephones are in place around campus for use by individuals in fear of becoming victims of crime. Security officers make frequent rounds on campus, and there is usually some student activity around campus to deter potential criminals from engaging in their deplorable acts. Overall, I and those around me feel that EKU is a safe campus, and we have never had to question our safety here.

Overall Experience: EKU has quickly become like a second home to me! From the exciting events and extracurricular activities on campus each week, to the lively and passionate faculty, there is never a dull moment on campus (unless that is what one wishes to find). The library offers quiet space for students wishing to read or study in peace, and various other buildings and labs on campus serve well as ample study space. The EKU Honors Program (ranked 14th in the nation), has some of the most stimulating and interesting coursework one could hope to find in a university, and scholarly organizations such as the McNair Scholars Program offer satisfying rewards for exemplary performance in the classroom and in independent research endeavors. The facilities as EKU are constantly undergoing change, so there is little chance of one growing tired of the scenery on campus. Additionally, there are a number of coffee and food vendors on campus as well as a cafeteria which hosts a diverse range of domestic and international cuisine choices.

Athletics: The EKU Colonels pour their hearts and souls into every game, win or lose, and it is always for the entertainment of a fully-packed stadium of students, parents, alumni, faculty, and other devout fans. During every semester, off-season or no, students and faculty are persistent in their support for the players -- faculty, reminding their students of upcoming games or other events; students, wearing Colonel apparel with pride and singing their team's praises. In EKU's athletic facilities, the athletes often exercise in the same space as non-athletes, which, to the more enthusiastic Colonel fans, must be liken to shadowing a celebrity! The EKU Colonels effortlessly encourage others to maintain physical fitness, and to maintain their support for EKU and its athletic programs, and the impact they have on the EKU community ripples throughout the campus and into every classroom.

Campus Housing: We pay to much and do not get anything. Along with taking away all of the housing and giving priority to freshman is horrible.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know much about the Greek life here but I hear good things and bad things about it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic here at Eastern are unfair and they do not consider either dance or cheer a sport. All athletes get free books but cheerleaders and dancers are not considered athletes and that is not right, unfair, and its discrimination.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the overall environment at Eastern. It's very homey and that is one of my favorite things about it.

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.
