4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks do many great things for the campus and the community as a whole. They hold many leaderships positions around campus and greatly add to the social atmosphere. Being Greek is one of the easiest ways to meet many people, and most non-Greeks respect the Greek Life on campus. Greeks have the option of living anywhere that a non-Greek would, with the addition of chapter houses.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many places to live off campus but they are still within walking distance. Parking is easier to find, and when added up it is slightly cheaper to live off campus rather than on. Many people choose to live off campus after their freshman year. Also, there aren't as many rules and restrictions in off-campus housing but it is a little further from classes than on campus housing.

Party Scene: If you are into Greek Life then parties are very good and usually happen every weekend. If not, you might not have as easy of access to parties but that doesn't mean that there aren't plenty to go to. I think the party scene has a positive impact on student experience! From my personal experience, the majority of the student population knows when it's time to work and when it's time to play. An example of this is that many people don't host parties during dead week, finals week, or on any random school night. People are aware that they are in school for a reason and if they work hard throughout the week then they will have the opportunity to play on the weekends and I think that's really great! I think it motivates people to work harder during the week and it also helps you to meet more people!

Off-Campus Dining: Many places that are close to campus are aware that many college students will want to dine at their restaurants so they try to keep prices reasonable and many offer student discounts. Also, they are right on the outskirts of campus so they are very close. If you are looking for a lot of good food for a low price I would suggest going to Cookout!

Administration: The policies at UK are enforced but it is not too overbearing. I believe that the staff at UK are well aware of which policies need to be more strictly enforced and which they can be more lenient with.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining on campus is great. There are many different places to eat with many different varieties of foods, all of which are very convenient. If I had to change one thing about dining on campus, I would make sure that all dining halls accepted meal swipes at any time of day.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process went fairly well for me, although it was a little confusing at times because I wasn't sure of what some things meant or things that I was supposed to do, I just contacted my financial adviser and she helped to clear everything up.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great way to get involved and meet tons of new people. UK is constantly working on improvements for the school, one of the most recent being the new state-of-the-art dorms. However, whether you live in a new or traditional dorm, you are bound to have a great time meeting many new friends! Living on campus gives you easy access to classroom buildings, the libraries, and the many great places to eat. Applying for housing is very simple, although it is a little costly to live on campus, it is completely worth the extra money!

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus currently.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I wouldn't say it's the best, but it's definitely unique and a lot of fun.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Campus is right next to downtown Lexington and there are so many options right off campus that are very easy to walk to!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It's really not that strict. Parking is the worst, though.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Overall, it's not bad. There aren't many healthy options, but it's ultimately the student's choice to eat healthy or not.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not have to deal with financial aid.

Campus Housing: It's alright, it depends on what dorm you live in.

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.
