4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining options are really good. Being that the University of Kentucky is in the city of Lexington, Ky there is a lot to offer in terms of restaurants. The Mexican food off campus is one of my favorites. The prices are relatively average compared to other locations. At the normal restaurant off campus plates are between 12 to 15 dollars.

Scholarships: When I first started at the University of Kentucky it was hard to set up my financial aid because the process was confusing and often the people at the financial aid office wouldn't answer the phone or call back. The process did end up working out, and I received my financial aid package.

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls at the University of Kentucky are preppy and care about their appearance. Compared to other locations the guys and girls spend time each day dressing for school. The social scene is very active around campus too. Most of the guys and girls go to parties and frequent the bars on the weekends. There is also great involvement in Greek life.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Kentucky students bleed blue and take any chance they have to display their spirit. Some students can feel overwhelmed when they first come to campus by all the organizations and people. It takes about a year to really settle in and find a group or niche on campus that makes you feel like you belong.

Kentucky offers a well-rounded education and opportunity for networking and making friends while staying in a mid-sized city with traditional values. With the exception of the parking problem, lack of diversity, and sometimes annoying Greek population, Kentucky can provide a student with a great education, both in and out of the classroom.
