First, we are so happy to have you here and hope you will take advantage of every opportunity that EKU will present to you. Meet someone is the polar opposite of you (race, background, religion, political persuasion, whatever. . .) and make a sincere and honest efforts to become friends. You will be amazed at how much you learn from each other.

In the words of Walt Whitman, “Be curious and not judgmental.”

Get enough rest and follow a proper diet.

Exercise and stay active.

Stay here on weekends and take advantage of all the campus and our community have to offer.

Make sure you attend the first home football game on August 30th

against Morehead!

College is what you MAKE of it. So do your best to make the very best of your time at Eastern.

And finally, follow me at @EKUPrez to stay current on all things Eastern Kentucky.

Go Colonels!
