The Colonelís Compass, a new publication containing information traditionally found in the front of the EKU schedule book, was mailed recently to current students who are not graduating in May, all full-time faculty and all department offices.
When the format of the schedule book was changed two years ago, it made the listing of courses more readable, but required additional space. Due to those space limitations, much of the information traditionally found in the front of the book was omitted. While this information has always been available online, many students and advisors found having a paper copy of the information to be convenient. Therefore, as printing of a paper schedule book is phased out Ė a plan that has been ongoing for the past two years Ė the Colonelís Compass, named on the recommendation of the SGA, was created.
