    Nothing is worth the amount of money this place has cost me. I will be in debt for the rest of my life.

    I like the 'small town atmosphere' here in Richmond. I believe I will be staying close by even after graduation.

    EKU has an absolutely gorgeous campus!! It lies in the center of the Bluegrass. The beautiful scenery makes the long treks across campus worthwhile.

    Pretty good priced snack machines, but recommend buying your own snacks at a store. Tuition is a great price. Rent books, which many can be rented at the on campus bookstore. If I lived on campus I would invest in a bike to save money on gas, most places to go off campus are not that far but could still be quite a walk.
