3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's average; there are nice places that are more expensive and very bad/unsafe areas that are dirt cheap. You just have to do your research.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lexington has a ton of great restaurants with a wide variety of cuisines at really good prices, especially for students.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It could be more extensive

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They offer scholarships for freshman based solely on your ACT score. You're only granted one scholarship from UK, so there's now stacking of scholarships or combining multiple ones. There's hardly any options on campus for scholarships if you're middle class, not a member of the "diverse" crowd that UK throws money at, or from a far off county in Eastern Kentucky. Scholarships at UK are awful.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't drink until I vomit nor do I brave the arctic winds and snow in a slinky dress with heels. I tend to stick to local bars and friend's apartments for more casual and less annoying types of parties.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Before the privatization, the food on campus was pretty average. Now the overall sizes of meals have decreased, number and options of sides allowed has fallen, and the food is generally bland tasting.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The older dorms are in very bad shape, while the newer ones are luxurious. The constant construction of demolishing the old and building the new does create a sound issue surrounding most dorm buildings.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: A lot of the same meals every week, but not bad.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I still live on campus and have not tried to look for a place off campus

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I do not eat off-campus very often but when I do I enjoy it

3 College Freshman

Administration: It could be a little more thorough

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am receiving the Bluegrass scholarship, but I wish there were more options for out of state students

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not part of the "standard" college party scene

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Overall, the food is okay. Intermezzo gives you the best variety and amount for a single swipe.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm is not the best, but the school is building more and more newer buildings.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lot's of places close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Too strict on certain things such as parking.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's hard for student from Lexington.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not everywhere accepts meal swipes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost is outrageous, sadly.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Having each separate college within the University really gives you a close feeling with your adviser.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: While I live off campus, I live further than most students at about 10 minutes out. I have noticed plenty of apartments, houses and townhouses near campus.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is plenty to eat around campus, most within walking distance but also quite a few options just minutes up the road.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I don't know much about the policies in the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I receive pell grant, loans and money from post 9-11 GI bill and all of it has been delivered in a pretty timely manner. When there was a hold up last semester the office was quick to help me get my money ASAP.

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.
