Welcome Back, Colonels!

Fall semester is here! Thousands of students flooded the #CampusBeautiful on the first day of classes, Aug. 21, following a relaxing summer break. As they navigated their way to classes, they passed familiar sights such as the Ravine and the Centennial Man statue, as well as new additions to the EKU landscape, like the recently completed Martin and North residence halls.

Farmers Market

The Employee Wellness Program at EKU brings The Madison County Farmers Market to campus every Thursday during the growing season. During the summer, the farmers can be found in the Alumni Coliseum Parking Lot. As summer winds down, and our students return to campus, the fall farmers market opens in Irvine McDowell Park, right next to EKU.
