Colonel for a Day
The EKU Colonel for a Day Program matches prospective high school juniors and seniors with EKU undergraduate volunteers. The program allows prospective students to "taste college life" with different times ranging from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Thursdays. Guest will attend a class, grab some lunch and get an informal tour of campus while you ask your hosts about their EKU experience!
Spotlight Days are held on the Richmond Campus on selected Saturday mornings during the fall and spring terms. Learn more about life at EKU and the college experience, meet with a panel of current EKU students who will share their "Eastern Experience," visit the academic/student services showcase to browse informational booths, take a campus tour, and mingle with faculty and staff from across the University.
