The campus at Eastern Kentucky University is extensive and full of some wonderful buildings, works of art, and interesting surprises. One thing that strikes a visitor is the cleanliness of the site and the obvious pride that has gone into the planning of the layout and the design of the buildings.
A statue of Daniel Boone graces this open space in front of the Administration Building and the Student Centre. The statue's toe is well polished - legend has it that rubbing his toe on the way to an exam ensures a successful outcome!
Open plazas and pleasant walkways link the various departments and the style of the original architecture is preserved even where new buildings have been linked to old ones. There is an obvious pride in the university's achievements and, as you would expect, huge support for its sports teams.
EKU has a good academic reputation, and from what I saw on my brief visit there - it is very well deserved.

I have a number of other photos which I will put up as soon as I can find both the time and the method of reducing file sizes! Glad you liked the shot; I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and the atmosphere there. A lovely place to study and some fine teaching staff.
