Campus Housing: Living on campus was great. The dorms were quiet and I was close to my classes, but not all students get that kind of comfort.

Campus Housing: It's great, especially if you live in the newer dorms with your own room and only have to share the bathroom with your roommate. One negative is that if you live on south-side of campus its a longer walk to get to class.

Greek Life: When it come to Greek life, many of the people who join these groups, stay within their groups. Socializing or being around non-Greeks is hard to find. They usually stick together, or they are always together. The Greeks have their own housing for each chapter.

Athletics: The University of Kentucky has a great athletics program. Many fans come from all over and they cheer on on of the best teams in the nation. Especially when it comes to basketball season, that is when the fans come out and cheer the Wildcat on! Many students will camp out to get tickets to games or they will just buy season tickets. The school spirit at this school is unbelievable.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Kentucky is unique because you have people coming from may different backgrounds coming together as one. Its a great place to meet new people and learn new cultures. I would choose to go to The University of Kentucky because of what is teaches you to become and it gives you the path to success.

Greek Life: If that is what you are in too then go for it. It seems pretty over rated. When you go to college it is to learn.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: When it comes to athletics....UK is the best! They take pride in the sports they play and it seems everyone stands behind them.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my overall experience has been great! I love my professors. The campus is beautiful. The only problem I have is the cost of tuition. I love UK and I only wish it was more affordable.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are frequent armed robberies of students near campus and I have verbalized the need to have the campus police schedule a regular patrol around the campus neighborhoods in the late evenings and early mornings, after a student was shot and killed last year for his backpack.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are ongoing career and job fairs to provide opportunities to find a career/job after graduation. The University is well recognized in Kentucky as a top academic institution. There is a very active and involved alumni network along with a Career Center that students are encouraged to go to for counseling on preparing for a career. The quality of the employers are fair. They tend to be only within Kentucky. But the quality of the Career Center is excellent in their assistance

Campus Housing: I can only base my answers on what my friends have told me since I live off campus

4 College Senior

Greek Life: As a non-Greek, I view the Greeks as being an integral part of the University. They are involved in just about every major fund raising event on campus. I have many close friends who are Greek and they treat me no differently than their Greek sisters or brothers. At the campus Newman Center, we have Greek night every week with religious celebrations. The non-Greeks are welcome to join in the celebrations, pizza and socializing. There are several neighborhoods around campus with fraternity and sorority rows. There are a total of 47 fraternity and sororities at UK, starting in 1890. Greek life is a hard fast tradition at UK.

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.
