4 College Senior

Weather: The weather isnt a huge deal while having to go to class. There are shuttles available for you to ride to class, and the campus isnt that big, so walking to class doesnt take that long, so just grab a rain jacket or umbrella! When it is nice outside, I absolutely LOVE EKU!!! Everyone is outside listing to music and playing cornhole and throwing football around. Campus is also beautiful when its nice out!

Weather: Kentucky weather is like a woman in PMS, trust me, I know from experience. Random weather changes, random storms, an alert system that tells us there's a Thunderstorm Warning DURING a thunderstorm. It's an adventure, always.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Kentucky, when it rains it pours and this can make going to class less than ideal but for the most part its a five minute walk to any where so it isn't so bad. When it snow it is awful the school does a poor job to say the least in regard to ice safety.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Wind makes it very chilly, otherwise its general midwest weather

3 College Freshman

Weather: When the wind chill makes it -5 outside, we still have class and there have been incidents when there have been frozen sheets of ice called sidewalk that we have had to walk on and class still was not cancelled. We only get delays if President Benson sees snow on the radar before classes start, and we only close when there is going to be snowstorms. I'm not saying I expect school to close just because it's cold out, but the wind freezes your lungs, we should have more than a delay. I can deal with the rain.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students at Eastern experience a lot of different weather on campus because Kentucky is one of those states that usually gets four distinct seasons. In the summer, campus can be really hot and humid, so students will typically wear shorts and t-shirts. Around the end of September, the weather gets a little cooler and fall sets in; jeans and long sleeve shirts become appropriate. Campus is really beautiful in the fall with all of the leaves changing on the trees, and many students enjoy sitting outside in the Ravine to do homework.

Bundle up when winter sets in because it gets cold, and sometimes it can snow a lot on campus. The temperature is usually around freezing, and the last few years there have been multiple ice storms, leaving classes cancelled and sometimes knocking out power for parts of the city. After the cold months, campus gets frequent rains in spring, so make sure you pack an umbrella to class. The weather does look nice when it’s not raining, and temperatures are usually in the mid 60s. While weather does vary drastically on campus, there are numerous activities students enjoy year-round, from baseball to Frisbee, sledding to hiking, and everything in between. EKU gets its fair share of diverse weather.

Did You Know?
The last few years EKU has experienced several ice storms, leaving classes cancelled for days. Ice accumulated several inches and brought down several trees around campus. While students had fun sledding and admiring the winter wonderland, many members of Richmond's community were out of power and had to seek food and warmth in the campus dining hall in Powell.
