Big E Welcome

The Big E Welcome will allow you to build friendships and connections with other first-year students, equip yourself with skills to excel in the classroom, and truly welcome you into the EKU experience! Your Colonel Crew Leader (a current EKU student) will lead you through the festivities and share the week with you.

  • 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.

The Big E Welcome has no fee and is mandatory for all first-year Colonels. Transfer students with less than 30 hours are expected to attend.
