I transferred into EKU from out of stateDec 08 2011Other
I transferred into EKU from out of state. If you transfer in, come here because the program is widely respected and renounced (my case). Know that people come in with circles established from high school or their little town an hour or so away and will routinely act as if you are invisible. Richmond's culture is like no place I have lived in and I hope to God I never experience it again! The "amenities" of Richmond are nothing more that any city above 50,000 offers.
