5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: University of Kentucky really knows how to make a person feel welcome. From staying at the dorms during orientation all the way to Kate week where you moving and get acquainted with the campus there is a never ending love being given from the University of Kentucky.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am taking summer classes and it was the best thing to do. I have had a chance to get familiar with the school. I have made friends on campus and started looking for a part time job. The summer program has given me a head start on not only classes but campus life.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Kentucky was a great pick for me. Even though I barely knew anything about the school when I applied they made it easy and comfortable to start out there. The classes are great the they offer so many different options for students that are unsure of what they would like to do. The classes may be a little spread out which requires a lot of walking, but I enjoy observing the grounds on campus, that are well kept. UK was just the right distance from home which offered me a buffer but still can go home when needed which is a great perk when I was choosing a college. Even though tuition and fees around campus are higher then I would prefer they offer some opportunities for scholarships. One more great experience while being at UK is the great city Lexington. The city offers many places to go and great scenery, being the horse capital there are always events to get involved in. My overall experience at college has been exceptional I glad that UK is the College I chose I turned out to be the best decision I could have made.

Overall Experience: I like my school. It's perfectly suited to my expectations.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my school! The biggest complaint I would have is the huge emphasis on Greek life. The school seems to cater very much to Greek events and organizations despite the fact that it consists of only 20-30% of the student body. As someone who has very little interest in Greek life (along with 70-80% of the student body) I find this to be quite frustrating at times.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone at Kentucky is very friendly and was welcoming from the first moment I stepped on campus. I would not want to be going to school and earning an education from any other university.

Off-Campus Dining: Considering the dining on campus is terrible, It's nice to change things up and visit some off-campus locations. However, due to only restricting to Plus account, which also has its useless aspects, it requires I have to spend my own limited money.

4 College Junior

Administration: It's pretty good. I don't really have a bad thing to say about the administration. I follow all regulations and have no trouble.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The quality of the food is not very good. There are only a few restaurants I will eat at. The fact that I can't use a meal swipe at most places until after 4 is terrible.

Scholarships: The financial aid part was easy. Finding scholarships and applying has proved to be somewhat difficult.

Campus Housing: Due to the privacy, it's harder to meet people and interact and make friends, but the quality of living is incredible.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I decided not to live on campus my first year and I regret it so much. I had a lot of friends in the dorms and I loved how many people they met and how close they all were because living off campus, you never really interact with the people in the dorms unless you're in class. I do know that our worst dorms though are Blanding Tower and Kirwan Tower. The best are the new dorms, Woodland Glenn and 2 other ones on campus. The cost is actually very high and not worth it, in my opinion.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek houses are always doing good things for the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off- campus housing is very convenient. It is clean and close to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The best parties are during Basketball season when UK is doing well.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of little local spots and a wide variety of food that is very tasty.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The strictness was not a problem as long as you do what you are supposed to.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food was fairly good, but you will eat the same thing over and over.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am in the Air National Guard so I get tuition assistance and that part went very smooth. The part that was a struggle was getting considered as an in state student, even though according to their policies I was considered an instate student.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing is great. The dorms are very clean Andy the beds are comfortable.

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.
