4 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many options when it comes to picking a class to fulfill a requirement which I appreciate. I personally have not had many racially diverse classes or professors.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We don't have a lot of crime and campus police are pretty nice/caring.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost of living in a dorm on campus is ridiculously high. It is also an inconvenience to have to pay for laundry. The meal plan cheats you with the four hour between each swipe rule.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am interested in joining a NPHC historically black sorority which is completely different than a historically white sorority.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not a big sports person but the importance that is placed on UK sports is seen all over campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am an army child and the University of Kentucky was not my top choice but they did offer me a scholarship which ultimately made my decision.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: really enjoyed my time in the fraternity. We have good parties and it is a good way to get plugged in.

3 College Junior

Athletics: we are big basketball fans !

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I first lived in an LLC (Learning Living Community). I highly recommend all freshmen do this. It is an easy way to get plugged in.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe on campus. I have walked home alone at various hours of the night/early morning. This being said, I generally keep myself out of situations that I could see going badly. I try to keep an eye out for my friends and make sure they aren't walking alone and ask that they let me know when they get home if they are going to walk home or to their car alone. That is because I don't know how much I trust campus security. I haven't seen them in action (thankfully?). I know that there are resources available (VIP center, campus police, blue light poles, etc.), but like I said, I don't know how reliable they actually are.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors are good, some not so much. I have had a handful of outstanding professors, most are alright, few were rather lacking in my opinion. The number of outstanding professors is greater than the number that were rather lacking. Go to their office hours to get help and find out how helpful they will be to you. Go early and make it a habit - that second part will be the real challenge.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I expect that my degree will open the doors that it needs to. UK has ABET accredited engineering programs and they do the job. Is it the greatest degree in the world? Probably not. However, the REALLY good professors remind me that although it may not be easy or always enjoyable I can continue searching for the job that will be satisfying to me and that is what a degree from the University of Kentucky will help me to do.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
