Welcome Back Colonels
The first two weeks of class are some of the most exciting on the #CampusBeautiful. With all the new and returning Colonels figuring out their routines and getting used to college life, it can feel a bit hectic. However, the energy and atmosphere is second to none.
With events like Rec the Ravine, Colonel Craze, the Veteran's Welcome Back Picnic, the Part-Time Job Fair and more, there is always something going on. The season opener for EKU Football August 29 was one for the record books, as the Colonels defeated the visiting Valparaiso Crusaders 53-7. The game-day crowd also enjoyed the first look of the EKU Marching Colonel's halftime show.
At the start of the academic year, memories are being made at every event, and one doesn't have to go far to find Colonels looking to the future with optimism. Check out these photos of various first-week events by EKU Photographer Amanda J. Cain and Student Photographers Carsen A. Bryant, Gabriella Ferraro, Julia Hickey & Ashley Fletcher.
