Student Life & First-Year Experience

Our Mission

The mission of Student Life & First-Year Experience is to enhance the quality of life of Eastern Kentucky University students by supporting the University's commitment to the academic success and holistic development of every Colonel. Our goal is to foster intellectual, physical, and social development through programs and direct services which challenge and support students as they develop attitudes, abilities, and skills for life-long learning within an ever-changing global environment.
