Eastern Kentucky University will be buzzing with exciting events throughout the spring semester as a part of the Exceptional Eastern Experience (E3) initiative.

E3 enhances the quality of campus life by providing students with a holistic approach to learn and grow through a robust calendar of events. Programs and services foster intellectual, physical and social development which challenge and support students as they develop attitudes, abilities and skills for life-long learning in a global environment.

“We hope investing in these events will contribute to a well-rounded college experience for undergraduate students while encouraging a sense of community on EKU’s campus,” said Dr. Dannie Moore, vice president of student life and chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer. “College is a time of personal growth. The memories and friendships made along the way are critical to that growth.”

Since the launch of E3 in Fall 2021, many well-known artists have performed on campus including JP Saxe, J.D. Shelburne, Tenille Arts, T-Pain, Waka Flocka Flame and Tai Verdes.

This spring’s E3 lineup includes:

Many events are available only for EKU undergraduate students, offering exclusive student opportunities. However, some E3 events are open to the public, including the February SNL event. Tickets can be reserved through the EKU Center for the Arts. E3 events are announced via EKU’s social media channels and posted to the Student Life Engage calendar at go.eku.edu/engage.
