EKU Student Profile: Greg Holian
Hometown: Erlanger, KY
Major: Assets Protection and Security
"I joined the Marines in January of 2004 and was sent to the Marine base in Cherry Point, NC. I worked as a Military Police Officer before embarking on my first tour of Iraq. After my first tour, I came back to Cherry Point. When an opportunity came for a 2nd tour, I decided to go back. I wanted to be with my good friends."
Ready to Go
“I didn’t think I was ready to go to college straight out of high school but after about three months in the Marines, I realized I was ready. On my second tour, my fiancé, recommended EKU. I went online and found a program I liked and applied while I was in Iraq."
"I decided to major in Assets Protection and Security. The program I chose was a good fit for me. I knew the combination of my work experience and this degree program would put me ahead of the game when it came time to find a job in this challenging economy."
