5 College Junior

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would not change my experience here at UK, it has been a series of ups and downs, but it has taught me how to be more independent.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I personally am looking to pursue a career in the Washington Metro Area, so UK does not exactly offer too many opportunities to be in the line of work that I would like. However, when I was previously a political science major I had tons of opportunities

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not a very safe city. More safety precautions could be taken in order to make students feel more secure such as reducing late night classes and keeping security posted around the campus and near large off campus student housing

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I personally lived in a set of older dorms my freshman, but have many friends who now live in the newer and nicer dorms. I think it is pretty cool that students are offered all these amenities, but it takes away from the dorm experience since students are able to shut themselves in their room, taking away the need to be social. The rooms I lived in were so bad that we wanted to leave and go see people and hang out with our friends, now you never have to leave! Although they are very nice, the price is outrageous, which is why I now live off campus.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I am a member of a Greek Organization on campus, and I can hands down say it was one of the best decisions I have made upon coming to UK. My sorority is so supportive and kind, and they help me to reach my academic and career goals. I love how involved we are with the community, and the emphasis that we place on giving back to those around us. Additionally, I have met life long friends, whom I probably would not have met without my sorority.

5 College Junior

Athletics: So good that it has even funded the construction of new academic facilities! Always a good time at the games!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Coming to UK as an out of state student, who has had many family members attend the institution, I was very excited to get involved and enjoy this school! It has been everything I expected it to be and more; thriving student population, great teachers, amazing school pride and endless opportunities. My first two years have been so enjoyable, and I cannot wait to continue my last two years here as a Wildcat.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't gone to classes here quite yet, but I am enrolled for this up coming school year. I can't wait to be a full blown Wildcat. The professors and administrators have been so accommodating and have helped me in every way that they could. The campus is gorgeous and isn't in the middle of no where. I love this school so much.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being in social work, there are a lot of opportunities for me to get an internship. My counselor also is putting me on a track that will help me find work sooner than later. For an on campus job, I get emails all the time for job opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: University of Kentucky's campus is rated #5 on the top safest college campuses. There are big blue polls everywhere with a big blue button on them. In an emergency, you press the button and a UK police officer will be there in 60 seconds or less. There are however a lot of homeless people walking around downtown Lexington, but they post no threat.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are like actual hotel rooms. For a standard dorm, you get a tempurpedic mattress, a mini fridge, a microwave, and a bathroom you share with the people next to you. You also have a full blown kitchen on each floor. It is somewhat expensive, but that comes with the quality of your room. There are specific days you move in and going through the process of requesting an early move in date is fairly simple.

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.
