Eastern Kentucky University

School Description

Provided by Eastern Kentucky University

Eastern Kentucky University is a student-centered comprehensive public university dedicated to high-quality instruction, service, and scholarship.

Eastern Kentucky University was founded in 1906 with a faculty of seven. In 1909, when the first commencement was held, 11 people received degrees. Over the last century, we've grown to a full-fledged comprehensive university offering 168 degree programs and serving more than 15,000 students a year. But we haven't lost that small-college feel.

With a student-faculty ratio of just 17-1 and a strong emphasis on student success, EKU is able to offer its students the personal attention they need to succeed. Classes are generally small, and they're usually taught by professors, not graduate students. Our professors will take a genuine interest in how you're doing. There's no getting lost in the crowd here.

You won't be just a face in the crowd when it comes to campus life, either. There's always something going on to capture your interest and help you make new friends. You can get involved in one of the 175 student organizations, play intramural sports, try out for a play or a musical group... whatever your interests are, there's something here for you.
