Exceptional Eastern Experience (E3)

A group of students having fun

At EKU, you’ll do so much more than just go to classes and study. You’ll meet new people. You’ll have fun. You’ll make lifelong memories. It’s all part of the Exceptional Eastern Experience (E3). First, you’ll be greeted on campus with a Big E Welcome – days of exciting events just for you to have a good time and get to know our campus and your classmates. Then throughout the semester, you’ll enjoy free concerts, comedians, athletic events and lively activities right here on campus. 

Plus, we’re home to the EKU Center for the Arts, Central Kentucky’s premier live entertainment and arts destination. The Center for the Arts puts on popular shows, musicals, concerts and performances, and hosts EKU’s biggest student events. 

You don’t want to miss what we have planned for you!
