4 College Freshman

Athletics: I've never had to look hard to find a place to play sports here.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I dont' really eat out much, so there's not a lot to say here.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: When I initially applied here I would have gotten a full ride, but since I transferred I am getting no aid.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For the cost the school is great, however in the long run I don't believe it will be as beneficial for me to attend UK then for me to attend a private school.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nightlife for me is a lot of studying, but given the chance, I have opportunities or get involved and have some fun.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic complexes on campus are very accessible and are in great shape, providing a place to blow steam and get away from every day college life.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: A couple of different times things have happened but we have been informed and kept safe pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It's boring and hard to keep my interest.

4 College Freshman

Majors: There's tons to choose from.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: There's not that much diversity on campus.

1 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is constantly changing.

1 College Freshman

Parking: K-Lot is far away and there's hardly any spots.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The visitation policy isn't the best.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: A lot of Greeks are just known for parties and it's annoying to deal with.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's not too hard to find financial aid but the tuition rate is rising.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's a great way to save money but it takes a lot to make sure you qualify to live in some areas.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Always a lively attitude towards everything. There are so many places to see and things to do that you are almost overwhelmed.

Diversity: It is about as normal as someone would expect at a 30,000 student campus.

Greek Life: Greeks carry themselves higher than everyone else. The first question to be asked when you meet someone is what fraternity or sorority are you in, and for me that is annoying because I am not in a fraternity because I do not have the additional money to add towards a fraternity for 4 years. That means I would have to pay for 8 semester of fraternity dues, which could be on average $700 a semester totaling $5,600. For someone like me who is cutting coupons to make ends meet a fraternity lifestyle is not in my future.

Academics: Some professors are here for research and you can tell they are not excited to teach, which reflects the way they teach.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have a healthcare facility and the university cops are there when we need them

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.
