On behalf of the Multicultural Greek Council at Eastern Kentucky, I would like to welcome all first-year students. As a first-generation student, there were many struggles that I faced during my transition from high school into college. I didn’t know anyone on campus and EKU didn’t feel like a home to me, just yet. So, I decided to get more involved and I was able to become a part of different organizations that created a home away from home. There are so many great organizations that EKU has to offer, and so much support from advisors, professors, and other professionals on campus. Take this time to grow, flourish and have fun. Take advantage of all the support surrounding you, and don’t be scared to get out of your comfort zone. Be safe and know that you are not alone during hard times or times you want to give up. Always tell yourself that there's a purpose and a dream at the end of the road.
