Your First Year

The goal of First Year Programs is to empower first year students to persist to graduation. Right now we are gearing up for Family Weekend and welcoming all of our extended family members to campus! Check out our Family Weekend page for details on signing up. The deadline is quickly approaching!  

As a new student, you and your family will gain valuable information about yourself, the campus and the EKU community during Orientation, Colonel Camp, and New Student Days.

Furthermore, overall satisfaction with college life is an important factor in completing your college studies. To make sure you are welcomed, celebrated and supported during your first year

EKU offers:

  • Peer mentors
  • Orientation classes
  • Increased interaction with faculty outside the classroom
