    My tip for prospective students is to come to EKU with an open mind. It won't take but a few minutes walking around on campus to fall in love with the school and the town of Richmond. The sense of Colonel Pride that students and the community have is overwhelming and definitely makes the college experience. Come visit EKU, multiple times if needed, until you are sure this is where you belong. The colonels are ready to welcome you home!

    If you are still in high school and nearby, look into the dual enrollment program. It will give you a feel for the campus and if EKU is the place for you. If it isn't, you will still save some money on tuition as most classes are transferable. Scholarships for the program are available too.
