I came to this school because it hadQuite BrightBiology
I came to this school because it had the major I wanted and was on the smaller side. This school is terrible. The standard dorm room is outdated and not kept very well, it is not tranfer friendly, the parking is horrid, most of the proffesors are friendly but counselors and administrative employees are rude and don't seem to care. Furthermore, the classes are way too easy, you don't really learn much, and I feel like all the money I'm spending to attend will result in a degree from a non-respectable university.

It has its good qualities but days likeAverageBiology
It has its good qualities but days like today out do the good. This is the 2nd semester I know of where a disabled person has had issues with the snow left on sidewalks. I saw today someone had to help a disabled person out of the snow when she fell out of her wheelchair trying to get over the snow piles trying to get on the sidewalk! The area in the sidewalk made for handicapped access had snow piled on it. All they really care about is money and saving face.Like most places though I've met good and bad people. If you like biology then your gonna love the labs but probably not like how they force chemistry on you. The teachers are actually pretty understanding and most will try to help as long as you ask.

Transferring your transcripts to EKU has been theQuite BrightNursing
Transferring your transcripts to EKU has been the most difficult aspect of applying to this University. Expect to constantly email your advisor and calling the campus in order to correct this difficult transition. I have been a FT student for the past 5 months at EKU, needless to say I am still to this date re-ordering transcripts from my last school, as EKU continues to say that do not have it on file. However, the classes show up in their unofficial transcript section on their website. Furthermore, if you transfer from another in-state college and receive the Colonel scholarship based on academic performance, then EKU changes your program to 100% online (not by your choice), not only will your tuition rate increase per credit hour, but you also will be notified that your scholarship has been cancelled as it does not apply to online programs. This University has been nothing but frustration from the time I applied. I have 1 semester left to complete for my BSN; and I will not plan on attending EKU for my graduate studies.
