Big E for On-Campus Students

Welcome to EKU! As one of many first-year students, being a part of the Big E Welcome will ensure you begin your college journey successfully.

At the Big E Welcome you will:

  • EXCITE your Colonel spirit by embracing EKU traditions and embarking on your individual “Eastern Experience.”
  • EXCHANGE dialogue, ideas, and perspectives with faculty, staff, and peers to connect with the greater EKU community.
  • EXCEL inside and outside the classroom by establishing positive habits that will help make you a successful Colonel at EKU and beyond.

How will the Big E Welcome benefit me as an on-campus student?

  • Discover what it means to be a student at Eastern Kentucky University.
  • Make connections with other fellow first-year students that live in your hall, share your interests, and take the same classes as you.
  • Identify ways to get involved in your residence hall and greater EKU community.
  • Learn about resources that will guide and enhance your collegiate experience.

Do I need to pay anything to participate?
