Eastern Kentucky University is a student-centered, comprehensive public university dedicated to high-quality instruction, service and scholarship. After 100 years of higher education on the Richmond campus, the University's role has grown far beyond its original mission of teacher education. With 168 degree programs, the University serves 16,000 students from 40 states and 30 countries on its beautiful main campus and at educational centers throughout the region, as well as via distance education and online. Intercollegiate and intramural sports, the fine and performing arts, plus more than 200 other campus organizations provide students with many opportunities to get involved in campus life, make new friends, and develop leadership skills.
Our focus is on students, their needs, and their SUCCESS! We are a comprehensive university offering 168 degree programs and serving more than 16,000 students, yet we haven't lost that small-college feel. With a student-faculty ratio of just 17-1 and a strong emphasis on student success, EKU offers its students the personal attention they need to succeed. Classes are generally small. Our professors will take a genuine interest in how you're doing. There's no getting lost in the crowd here. You won't be just a face in the crowd when it comes to campus life, either. There's always something going on to capture your interest and help you make new friends. You can get involved in one of the 220 student organizations, play intramural sports (EKU offers over 50 varsity, club, and intramural sports), try out for a play or a musical group... whatever your interests are, there's something here for you. EKU offers the leading fitness and wellness facility of any university in Kentucky.
