What is your overall opinion of this school?

The schools is a very nice environment to be apart of. The people and professors make you feel right at home, the campus in and out of itself is a beauty. The opportunities are endless, not including all there is to do around Richmond, Ky. Overall the school is a great place to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To me, coming to Eastern Kentucky University felt right. I visited the campus once or twice and when I found out they had the major I was interested in, I knew I wanted this to be my home for the next four years. There are always plenty of activities/groups to get involved with and the professors are always looking out for their students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so proud to be a colonel and attend Eastern Kentucky University! They don't call it "campus beautiful" for no reason; the grounds are so well kept and make waling to class everyday a joy. With medium to small class sizes, I always feel comfortable reaching out to my professors and establishing a connection with them. EKU caters to such a wide variety of specialties from the sciences to the arts to everything in between...there's something for everyone. A day doesn't go by where I don't see a new face and a familiar one as well, there's comfort in both sides of that. Overall, I am so happy I decided to call EKU my home for the next four years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do not like this school. I transferred here from an excellent college due to financial reasons, and the best part about Eastern is my ability to work on research projects throughout the semester, which is important as a future biologist. The party scene is excessive, and I do not like to party. It's difficult to be anywhere on or near campus on the weekends to study because of the noise. The majority of the students aren't here to learn but to get through and "earn" a degree. They just want to party. It's difficult to earn the degree anyway, considering all the work is just busywork that does not aid in understanding. I love to learn, but that just doesn't happen here. It's honestly a waste of my time. Also, do not take chemistry courses here. The department is lacking in decent professors. I taught myself organic chemistry because my professor, who is in his 70's and has "retired" multiple times but somehow keeps getting rehired, essentially just drew reactions on the board and said "this is obviously [whatever we were talking about]" without explaining what it was or why it was obvious. Lastly, even though the professors might have office hours, you can't expect them to be there on time or be helpful. I've had some professors that are so wrapped up with their personal lives that when I attempted to ask questions, they either shrugged it off or gave me meaningless answers. The only reason I came to this school is because it is cheap. That's it. I've never had such an incompetent educational experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will be attending Eastern Kentucky University in the fall of 2019. I visited in October and absolutely loved it. It is one of the best schools I have visited. It immediately felt like home to me, everyone was so kind. I can't wait to attend next fall!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Kentucky is one of the most beautiful campuses in Kentucky offering scenic views many places to explore and super close to Lexington. The students and staff make you feel like you are home no matter how far away you are or what aspect of life you have came from. I highly recommend you attending EKU. #GoColonels

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Kentucky University is one an amazing, academic, hard-working University. The students that attend are very diligent in the work they do. Their students have plenty of time outside of classes to do extracurricular activities. This makes the students lives a lot less stressful, they have an outlet when things are tough and you can always count on the counselors for help if there is ever an issue. Eastern Kentucky has a great staff, great peers and a great opportunity to earn your college degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my first year at EKU. I don't live on campus so my views about on campus living are from what other students say. For the majority all my teachers want their students to succeed and the school runs it's academic programs smoothly and help whenever you need help with scheduling classes or major changes. The campus is quite pretty even though it seems like there is always construction going on. The food options are good and they just recently added a new restaurant which is nice. The school sends emails every week about activities around campus to get students involved and even though I don't really get into that scene much I like that the opportunities are there. EKU's Center for the Arts hosts musicians and other performers and sometimes students get free tickets which is really cool. I really like EKU and am glad to be spending another year there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Kentucky University is a substantial college. Being a senior in high school I have looked at many special colleges and taken the time to visit many of them. Eastern Kentucky University just stood out to me in so many great ways and the campus felt like home. The campus size is a big factor way I love this college. It's not a huge campus that everything is spread out, its a medium sized campus and everything is in a short walking distance. The room and board is significant. The cafeteria has a variety of different food options that you can choose from and they also have different fast food places around the campus. You will never have to leave campus to have a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The dorms are one of my favorite parts about Eastern. The dorms are traditional but more higher up. You still get the great experience of sharing a room with a roommate but you get your own shower and bathroom to share with your roommate. The college life on campus is something that you won't want to miss out on. They have several clubs that you can join based on your interests and things you like to do. The best part is if you don't see a club thats right for you but you have one in mind you can create it! Greek life on campus is a great way to meet people and have a bother/sisterly bond that will last you a life time. The class sizes at Eastern are small so it allows your professor to get to know you and even better they will know your name! This allows you to be able to ask questions and spend one on one time with your professors. Eastern campus is a beautiful place with a lot of green space that you can hang out with friends, study, and play sports. Overall Eastern University is a great campus that I can not wait to spend the next four years at and it will help me guide my path for the future.
