“The availability of the Chemistry professors at EKU was a priceless factor in the overall quality of my education there. EKU serves the Commonwealth but, more particularly, the citizens of eastern Kentucky. With many districts in eastern Kentucky lacking the funding for thorough chemistry education, there is a great need for professors and staff to be approachable. EKU Chemistry serves this up in spades.” – EKU Graduate
