What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
Eastern Kentucky University is very centered around students. Every student is treated with the utmost respect and all questions asked are answered. It is easy to get information from faculty about a class or about administration issues at EKU which is one of the greatest difficulties I have had in college and students always feel welcome rather than bothersome.

Eastern Kentucky University, an incredible school in Richmond Kentucky, gives students an undergraduate career that they've always dreamed of. Academics are challenging yet informative. Eastern keeps up with the latest technologies and tools to ensure learning for all students. Outside of the classroom, EKU has a booming campus life, getting all students involved in clubs, honor societies, greek organizations, program specific groups, or athletics.
