January can be known for its inclement weather; we will still proceed with Orientation even if EKU operates on a one or two-hour delay. If the university is closed, please refer to the information in your final packet.

PLEASE NOTE: Parents, Family Members and Guests will be separated from their students after the Opening Welcome Session so that they may break out into smaller groups with their Orientation Leaders. Students will regroup with their parents and guests at the Showcase in Powell at 3pm.
