Kentucky Basketball — Agony or Ecstasy

Agony or Ecstasy—By John Huang

The Eastern Kentucky University Board of Regents, acting on a recommendation from President Michael Benson, has unanimously approved a tuition freeze for the 2018-19 academic year. Noting the excitement among current students about the freeze, Student Regent Laura Jackson called the freeze a “recruitment tool” and predicted it would improve retention rates.
