Big E Welcome Weekend
The annual Big E Welcome is one of the most exciting times on EKU’s campus. During three days of fun and tradition, EKU’s newest Colonels learn all about the University and make their first of many new friends.
This year, nearly 2,500 first-year and transfer students took part in the festivities, which started with Move-In Day on August 16. The next two days included the traditional Welcome Walk, the Big E Bash, the Keen Johnson Extravaganza and New Student Convocation, which marked the official start of #EKU23’s academic journey, and much more.
Welcome to Eastern Kentucky University to all of our new Colonels!
