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.

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.
