I have been there before but that was only for a drill meet. It looks like a good college to go to

Eastern Kentucky University is located in a relatively small town called Richmond. The town itself has a low crime rate and is a safe place to live. Students at EKU should rest assured that their safety is among the University’s top concerns. EKU is home to a police academy, so there are always campus police available when needed, but students say that their presence is not overbearing. Most areas on EKU’s campus are safe, but some unsafe areas would be the large open fields, which do not have much lighting at night. The walk from the dorms to the astronomy deck is not adequately lit, so students should consider taking the shuttle or walking in groups to areas like this. However, most students feel safe enough to walk alone at night on campus. The biggest safety concern on campus is theft or robbery. Students frequently get things stolen from their dorms, but this can be prevented by simply locking the door at night when you sleep or when you leave for classes.
Students agree that the Student Health Center is accessible and very convenient for students to get to because it is located near the center of campus. At the Student Health Center, students can receive treatment for a variety of problems. However, things like blood tests, X-rays, some vaccines, and certain STD tests can cost the student a small fee. There are special STD screening days that students can walk in and get tested for free. They also have Planned Parenthood come in on Mondays to prescribe birth control pills, perform pap tests, and other services.
