The University of Kentucky has great professors that want you to be successful. They also have many newly built classroom buildings such as the Jacob's Science Building and the Gatton Business School. Although, unless you are in greek life or have previously lived in Lexington it is very hard to get involved here. The meal plans are horrible and include moldy food at the dining halls and incredibly long lines. I would not recommend going here unless you are participating in greek life.

The thing that I loved the most about the University of Kentucky has been the people. Everyone we met at the University of Kentucky have been so friendly. I am very excited about studying Speech Pathology and I believe this school has a strong program. It has a smaller size feel and I loved the library and dorms. Through my church I have spent several years in a row on mission trips in Kentucky. Through these mission trips I have been able to help many people. We typically are assigned a family and it is our job to do work on their homes that they are not able to do because they either have physical or financial challenges. I have found these trips to be so rewarding since the people are so appreciated. My ability to help others is the main reason why I want to study communication disorders. I am excited to help both children as well as stroke victims. To help people with their speech disorders would be truly amazing!
