WHAT I LIKED

I like how open everyone is, and I like how beautiful the campus is. I like how exciting the atmosphere of the students and the staff.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I would change the dining hall and upgrade the dorms. They are liveable and acceptable but for the amount of money, we pay they should be held to higher standards.

WHAT I LIKED

I love how tight-knit all of EKU is. Almost any dorm building you choose to live in keeps you at the heart of campus, where all the classes, fun activities, and great food are. This especially comes in handy when the cold winter months come. Everyone is friendly - it is impossible not to make any friends here. But, if you are a student who prefers their alone time, there are plenty of spaces for that as well. EKU is perfectly accommodating to everyone.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

You can grow a little tired of the food. Some buildings are older, which means the elevators can be slow or sometimes not even working.

WHAT I LIKED

I love the opportunities for meeting people and how enjoyable life on campus is. I have met lifelong friends just in my first year and am so glad that I’ve chosen EKU.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I do not like the dorm situation. EKU housing allows freshman to choose their dorms first so which puts sophomores and upperclassmen at a huge disadvantage. We are left with the choice of the worst dorms or the most expensive.
