I'm a junior/senior so I will never get to enjoy any of these facilities. Why should I have to pay?

Your investment via the student fee is an investment in the future value of your EKU degree. We believe three elements in this effort are worthy of your investment. Costs will be shared between students, the University and with outside partners on various aspects of this new Center for Student Life. Students are asked to contribute to a new campus recreation center and renovated student union. Other funding will allow us to build the new pedestrian entrance, the Carloftis Garden and a new and dedicated student dining facility, paid for by our food service vendor. We also intend to invest $75 million (which was approved last session by the General Assembly) in our residence halls as we recruit private investors to replace our aging housing inventory. Remember also that the CSL concept is but one element in a comprehensive campus revitalization initiative that will include state-funded new academic facilities, a visitor’s center and new intercollegiate athletics facilities. We are also working on a new comprehensive capital campaign that will further expand our funding options on major projects as we move forward.
