The degrees I am pursuing are Fire Arson and Explosion Investigation & Correctional and Juvenile Justice Studies, a bit of a mouthful. Eastern Kentucky University happened to be the only school that offers the Arson Investigation Program, we are #1. I love being a Colonel and I love campus. This is a great school with a lot of dedicated teachers who have earned the title of Dr.

    Eastern Kentucky University is a great college as they care about their students needs and pursued careers. EKU takes great honor in the way their classes are set up and the way students have became successful through the variety of programs that are offered. I wouldn't choose any other college for Forensic Science as EKU has a very renowned program along with many other clubs and opportunities for students to meet new people and reach their dreams.

    Once you find professors you click with, school becomes so much more interesting and beneficial for you.The campus is wonderful with plenty of places to enjoy sun in the summer and spring and lovely warm places for cooler weather and the library is one of the best places to study. There are always events to keep you busy and having fun.

    Eastern Kentucky University is a very good college. I can tell EKU focuses on their students rather than the money they gain from the students.

    This school is great for someone who wants to constantly worry about college stealing money from you. If you want help from your advisors you're out of luck. If you have a little money or a lot of money they will figure out a way to take it all from you.

    Eastern Kentucky University has made it an easy transition from high school to college for me. Offering the Danville campus has saved me money. And I didn't have to move away from home just yet, so I'm content.

    EKU is a wonderful college in both scenery and people, the campus is kept clean and the people keep it friendly. The faculty and staff are always willing to help, from the amiable parking department to the informative EKUGurus (fellow students in the computer labs who will answer any and all questions, a friend of mine has tested this). the best thing about EKU is that it is small enough to prevent a student from becoming herded like cattle but is big enough to present many opportunities ( such as a myriad of choices for studying abroad, groups to join, and just fun activities to do).
