3 College Junior

Diversity: The LGBT community is widely accepted across campus.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus crime rates are really low at the University of Kentucky. There are lit pathways with emergency telephones almost every ten feet. I would walk back from class every day alone and was never worried about my safety.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks are there but they're not the most important things on campus. They throw a lot of parties and that's what they're known for.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot of things to do. There are two major shopping centers in town. A lot of the community works at UK so they don't mind students.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a big variety of people on campus. There are people who are interested in a variety of things.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The major is fine, but it would be better if there were more options for class times. Some of the classes required only have one section offered which makes it hard to make a schedule that works with my work schedule. The facilities are good, the college of business is undergoing renovation.

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.
