This year’s Homecoming celebration was one of our biggest and best in decades! Homecoming spirit week started EKU students off strong with a week full of fun themes like pajama day, crazy sock day and, of course, EKU spirit day, where Colonels were encouraged to wear as much EKU merch as possible! On Wednesday, October 19, EKU hosted country music singer Tenille Arts. Tenille’s performance in Keen Johnson was a great addition to the Exceptional Eastern Experience (E3) concert series.
Homecoming week at EKU continued with several fun events like the Colonel Corn Roast, Eastern’s Got Talent, Homecoming parade, Block Party featuring the Family Dog, the annual 5K and others. It ended with the Homecoming football game where the Colonels were victorious over the North Alabama Lions! The return of the Family Dog for one night only was one for the books, with over thousands of students, families and alumni visiting after 22 years of the iconic Richmond venue being closed. Generations of Colonels brought so much energy to campus during Homecoming week, and it was a true celebration of EKU’s past, present and future!
