Relax in the Ravine

The Ravine is a special place on the #CampusBeautiful.  Throughout the year, many people find it to be a great spot to hang out with friends, study for classes, or simply relax and enjoy campus scenery.  There are also many regular events and classes held in the Ravine.  Below is a collection of Instagram photos taken by EKU students, alumni, faculty, and staff that highlights so
