What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great place to be. The academics are outstanding and very challenging, but you will definitely know what you are doing when you get out. Socially, it has it's ups and downs but if you're 21+, you will never have to worry about being bored. Overall, EKU is a great place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Class sizes are small and more intimate once you declare your major, which I enjoy, but parking on campus can be a nightmare. Overall, I had a good experience and would recommend to others for the location and the price. There are plenty of places to eat and shop near campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love Eastern Kentucky University because of the small, close knit community. The class sizes are not that big, which means students are able to easily get one on one interaction with professors. There are a lot of resources on campus that are available to students to help them succeed. The campus is extremely safe, and there are also a lot of jobs available to students. Eastern Kentucky University really cares for all of its students, and supply everything needed to make sure they are successful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Eastern Kentucky University was a good choice for me. Picking a university can be hard. Eastern is the school for me. I love the overall feel of the campus, and the people here are great. The campus is also beautiful at sunset. I've made many great new friends. I know Eastern will continue to give me amazing opportunities to meet new people, and make lasting friendships.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it is a great school. The class sizes, especially once you get into your major classes, are perfect to me. I personally enjoy small class settings like 20 or so people in a class. That way its enough people so you don't feel awkward if you are a quiet person like myself. Its also not so big to the point that the professor, or other students, don't even know you by name. All the professors I've had were very nice and helpful. They were available via email almost anytime and they had office hours you could use to go ask for help. If the office hours didn't work some where even willing to meet outside of those times and where willing to work with your schedule.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have gone to eastern for about a year now. I really enjoy the atmosphere. I have had a few problems with housing, but more specifically the RHC. The Maintenance have been wonderful. I love the library, DSP is where it is at. There is always something to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking for a school that has small class sizes to learn and big enough to feel like you are apart of a movement then Eastern Kentucky University is your school. Overall, I've enjoyed my experience and have received a great education and able to graduate a semester early. The professors really care about the success of their students and will challenge you to be the best you can be. They won't throw you under the bus. I am proud to be apart of this university. Although Eastern has it's ups and downs what school doesn't? We are currently in the building process, making this school more up to date and competitive to other universities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While Eastern Kentucky University does have its faults, overall, it is a really good school. The faculty care about your education and aspirations. They put forth their best effort to help you in any way they can, whether it be for class or for your future career. In my case, as a biology student, many professors offer internships and experience within the biology field. Aside from professors, the actual classes are not that bad either. If you show up to class, take notes, and study your notes, you will pass. On the down side of EKU, it is a suitcase college (where most the students commute to school), so the school spirit and weekends are dull. However, if you join Greek life or get involved on campus it does lessen the painful boredom one faces on the weekends. Another downfall to EKU that has been driving everyone nuts is the parking! As a suitcase college you would expect us to have plenty of parking for commuters and residents, but unfortunately during the stress of construction of new buildings no one thought about where everyone was going to park. EKU sold more parking passes than they have parking places so everyone struggles to find parking on campus. Granted EKU’s parking is not as bad as other larger schools, it is still frustrating for both students and faculty to grasp the incompetence of some of the decisions made by the board and president of the school. Alas leading to my main dissatisfaction with the school: the decisions made by the board and president. There is a lot to complain about here, but first let me say that not all of the decisions made by these people are terrible and I do see their view on others. I just wish that they would not think of college as a business, but more so as an opportunity to educate the future generations of this world. I imagine this is a problem for most colleges, but it is just mind blowing comparing the caring nature of the faculty to the upper workings of the leaders of the school. That said, I do love the school, the faculty is beyond wonderful, the students are ambitious, and the pathway to getting your education is not a difficult one. Overall, I am glad I ended up here and would recommend Eastern Kentucky University to other students wanting to pursue a degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Kentucky University is a great school. It has almost any major you can think of and the tuition is very reasonable. The classes are small and the professors are usually easy to talk to. Big downside of the school is there is always construction going on so it can get very noisy. The campus is beautiful and the gym is great. Free yoga, pilates, cycling etc. classes everyday. Met some great people and students are very friendly. Overall the school is a great match for me.
