3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If I had it to do over, I would not have chosen UK. I don't necessarily dislike it here, but I feel that a smaller school would've suited me better. Also, it's impossible to get involved here without joining Greek life, but the party/slutty scene is definitely not my forte. I wish I could be involved in something without having to associate with such negative groups of people.

Overall Experience: University of Kentucky has been my home all my life. I grew up in Lexington so going to University of Kentucky was pretty much in my life plan. It was everything I hoped for and more.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Right now, I am still taking my basic classes. But there are several opportunities to get jobs and internship through the help of UK staff.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall the courses are manageable, some you have to spend a good amount of time to study for and some you don't. But as soon as you study, you can't get below a B. The professors are really nice and have open office hours that you can attend. They will work with you, if you need them too.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I currently live in the oldest dorms here at UK, but overall the University of Kentucky has some of the nicest and newest dorms in the U.S.

Greek Life: To be honest, I could have been in Greek life but I choose not too. Greek life is just not for me. But people enjoy joining the Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We know University of Kentucky as one of the best basketball programs in the U.S. but overall the athletics including football, soccer, baseball and etc., a lot of students still attend this events.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, University of Kentucky is a wonderful school. I love it and they make you feel at home! There are a few things they could work on which include the parking and the dining.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Everyone is obsessed with KY basketball. The entire campus and the entire state shuts down when there is a Kentucky Basketball game!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There seems to always be something going on at night on campus no matter what the day is. Some people go to bars while others have study parties at the library. Either way, people on campus seem to stay somewhat safe and under control.

Party Scene: I do not really go to the parties on campus, but I have heard that they always involve getting drunk and are always on south campus.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Some of the professors on campus seem to need more knowledge on their subjects and the university should look into checking on the classes as a whole. There are many options for classes that cover every field that you could want. The workload is acceptable for a full-time student, but if having to balance work and school it means staying up late and going to class early. The curriculum depends on the class just as the professor does.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There are so many people that attend UK it is almost impossible not to have diversity.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There should be more control over it especially for the underage students.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus feels safe considering it is in the middle of a city, there are plenty of resources for students to use to insure their safety.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The more general education professors aren't as interested in their students it seems because they teach lower level courses to a large number of a diverse student population, but the major centered professors and class are phenomenal.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I can see myself having lots of opportunities in the future during school and after I graduate.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its overpriced, but it would certainly be worth it if it was more affordable.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a lot of support for the sports team and is an integral part of this university.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its been a great experience that has allowed me to grow as a person, I think I would have changed things I have personally done in the past, but not the school.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, but as with any campus, there is always some sort of alert. Just the other night, we were all notified of a shooting on the southern end of campus. Sexual assault is not a huge problem, but it's still an issue. UKPD is always quick to respond and they are always present on campus.

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek like, and frankly don't care much for it. However, Greek life is a big part of campus life and seems to have a positive impact on social life as well as the community (with philanthropies and such). Most non-Greeks are indifferent towards Greeks, typically viewing them as all the same. I know this is not true because I have Greek friends but I can't help but to think that of other Greeks. Although some of the houses are still old and really bad, UK is slowly started to rebuild Greek houses so that they all have really beautiful houses.

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.
