2 College Junior

Scholarships: If you're a minority, you'll receive a ton of money. If you're white, you won't. Pretty simple.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: THE TRAFFIC IS SO BAD IT IS ALMOST COMICAL. Whoever planned the roads here is the worst.

4 College Junior

Majors: I didn't have any problems with the application process. It is pretty straightforward.

3 College Junior

Majors: The pharmacy program is very challenging, but is very respected, both nationally and internationally.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: Police only care about breaking up parties. They are NOT there to help you.

1 College Junior

Campus Strictness: UK treats underage drinking like it's the biggest problem in the world. Meanwhile, students are getting robbed, beaten up, and stabbed because the police are focused on parties.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Lexington has a great bar scene. The only downside is they are pretty spread out, so bar-hopping can sometimes be inconvenient.

College Junior

Campus Housing: President Capilouto's initiatives to improve campus housing are completely changing the way campus housing is viewed at UK. Living in dorms may actually become desirable, a big step forward from the Lee Todd days.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Kentucky is finally starting to take football seriously. The basketball program will always be legendary, thanks to the boosters. Barnhart needs to improve his performance on sports that actually matter (men's basketball and football).

5 College Junior

Greek Life: It isn't for everyone, but going Greek was the one of the best decisions I have ever made. It changed my life in so many ways, and truly helped me develop into a better man.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am in a new dorm this year. By the looks of it, it looks amazing. Can't wait to go in. Especially being apart of a living learning program.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Few places close really early, when I was there for the summer signing up for classes many places were closed. I do like Denny's though, great service!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There are so many degrees to choose from. I like my degree and where I am going with it. This is why I chose to go to this college.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship. I hope to have on in the near future.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: From what I heard it's a great school to attend not many problems. So they do have rules they just need to be followed and then the strictness will die down.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They have a safe path where it is a lighted path around campus. I will be taking that path a lot because I do feel safe on it.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not sure. I have heard of it but not really sure that is the life for me. I thought of it but don't have the money to join.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Again I am a transfer student, so not sure. But heard its the best.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I haven't really been there for nighlife yet. I am a transfer student, so I will know more after this semester.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I prefer a country town, it can get very busy. Saying that I do not like driving in it, especially with all the one-way streets. I am not taking a car so I will be doing lots of walking. I don't mind that. It is a great city though if you love horses, especially thoroughbreds.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I have lived off campus for two years and I wouldn't have it any other way.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I have not heard many stories of crime in Lexington.

4 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Most parties I have participated in are fun and most people are friendly.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I did not live in the dorms because I heard negative things about them. The social atmosphere is top notch.

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I went to the financial aid office and they took care of me promptly and efficiently.

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.
