Student & Graduate Reviews

Jamie Biddle - 6/11/2016
Degree: Homeland Security
Graduation Year: 2016
"Eastern Kentucky University has a beautiful campus and great people; who are really geared toward your success. I just wish that some of the faculty had more experience in the field in which the course they are teaching applies to and that professors could not switch courses in the middle of a semester (professors with no fire service experience should NOT teach courses in the fire service majors). I also think that if the academic and enrollment advisors did not change so much it would be easier keeping track of your degree progress (I had 3 academic advisors in a 4 year period and every time you had to tell them what courses you are taking and have taken when it is their job responsibility to make sure the student is on track). I choose this school because of the professors and courses it offered because it is the best in the state for my major and while I am happy with the education I received I believe that some things should be changed to make it a better experience for future students."

"EKU was a great school. Professors were very helpful and the classes were engaging. The campus life was very active. There were lots of opportunities to meet new people and become enmeshed in campus life."

Alum/Former Employee - 4/29/2015
Degree: Geographic Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2012
"Excellent GEO/GLY program. Taught mostly by people with real-world experience instead of dusty academics. On top of emerging technology; focuses on marketable skills instead of theory -- the goal is to graduate students ready for actual employment, and that is definitely what is happening. Access to educational trial software, professional testing, and professional organizations. Cannot say enough good things about EKU's geography & geology program."

"Eastern Kentucky University is a great campus for first time college students or returning nontraditional students. Very small classes and lots of options for other ways to get involved in the community."
