Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very nice and friendly. Mostly everyone either keeps to themselves or they form friend groups that do everything together, such as studying together, eating together, hangout, etc. If you are white and have mostly lived in a white community all your life then coming here can cause a sort of culture shock. I have personally never felt prejudiced against by anyone going to this school, whether it be by the students or the teachers. Everyone that I have met has been fairly opened-minded and prejudice isn't tolerated here.

Hello self, you're probably thinking, "Oh crap! What happened!? Did the world end in 2012 so all my schooling was all for naught?" Well no, it's not that serious. I just wanted to tell you that you're going to do well in your freshman year of college. I know, I know, you're probably worried about making friends and whatnot but don't worry! A lot of your classmates from high school will come and they'll actually be your classmates again! But about that though. I know the idea of having previous classmates be in your classes again might sound perfect but I just wanna say don't do that. You're gonna be offered to join the Whitney Young Program and I just want you to say no. Don't get me wrong the program is absolutely fabulous but with the career path you are eventually going to choose, you don't really need this program to help you. Yeah, you'll have a bunch of fun experiences, but no, you don't need it. Don't worry about college, it is just as you imagined it would be. Remember to have fun!

What's unique about your campus?

It is very easy to find study space so if you can study by yourself. Most of the time you can get a room by yourself so you don't have to share. In most rooms, they have a TV so students can watch those educational videos at the library if you need them. Every room also has an outlet so you can use your labtop in the study room without draining the battery.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

A historically black but modernly mixed institution with a small, yet comfortable campus that provides a family feel and creates a very student-friendly learning enviroment for everyone.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The college experience is self-created. You must get involved on your campus and want to know what is going on in order to have a good time. You must surround yourself with people that are as ambitious as you. If that means distancing yourself from previous friends that you notice are negative and do not want much from their college experience then so be it; it will be worth it. Remember that everything comes second to academics. Fun campus events, campus organizations, and even your sport come after you have finished your work. I know you will be playing golf in college so remember that golf is paying the bills. Go to every practice and workout on time and let no one steer you away from golf because scholarships are not promised. Last but not least, the professors. In college you take professors, not classes, so remember to ask around for the best professor in each subject so you will not have to deal with the burden of taking a professor you will not like. And remember that you are paying for your education so it is the professor’s duty to help you in any way possible.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about our school is the size of the campus. Because our campus has under 3,000 students, you begin to know every student on the campus, creating an enviroment to make you feel like you are at home. That enviroment builds school moral and school pride so our campus stays clean, safe and fun. It is also great because you get a relationship with professors that you get at no other type of school. You can call or text them on personal lines and they are always available to help you on a 1 on 1 level.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The thing that I find most unique about Kentucky State University is the fact that all of the students here are like a huge family. Everybody pretty much knows and cares for everybody. The student body being a family here at KYSU is what makes school events and even going to class even more fun.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Sunny, you are finally a senior in highschool. After this, your life truly begins so do everything in your power to ensure that the next years to come will be successful. Focus, and stay determined. You know that you struggle in math so pay extra attention in class and stay after school when you need extra help. Yes, your friends will want you to do things with them, but studying is more important and will pay off, trust me. If they are your true friends, they will understand and maybe even study with you. I'm telling you this because college math is no joke! The teachers expect you to know material before you get there, and if you do not know it you will be lost. Also take those same study habits and apply it to every subject because you will need to study every subject in college, no matter how good you are at it. Maintaining good grades and study habits are important, but be sure you also work on finding yourself. In college, people from all over will try to persuade different opinions and actions upon you. Stay true to who you are, and stay focused.

What kind of person should attend this school?

KYSU does not discrimminate. If you love diversity, social gatherings, and being involed and while being able to stay focused, Kentucky State University is the place for you!

My school is a small school which means we are like one big family. Everyone at my school helps out anybody who is in need and needs help. We never turn out back on others, thats how big a family we are.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I have gotton a lot from my school. college teaches you responsibility and teaches you the real meaning of friendship. when i first had gotton to college i didnt do anything for myself at home. My mom did everything and when i got into college she did all my paper work. When she left i had t do everything by myself. I had to grow up and become responsible. When i was new to the school all the upper classmen came up to me and help me if i looked lost or asked me if i needed help. All the teachers , advisors, and the other staff where like parents most of the time. We could go to them with any issue and they would help just like if you were part of there family

College you have study in order to get the full understanding on the text books . I wil tell myself to be more independent in do for you rself to get use of taking care of myself. College is a big step moving from teens life to adult hood. Thats a big step in an process to maintain being adult. I will just tell myself be mor e determine then ever stay on top ,and never fall for anything. As I learn doing my seven months here on campus you have be very wise and make right decison .

Extremely smart honors students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You should visit the college campus at least twice before you make your final decision. The first visit should be a scheduled tour. The second visit needs to be impromptu. This allows you to get a real feel of the environment. Just because they are giving away refund checks and free pizza with a credit card application does not mean you have to accept. This will cost you much money in the long run. Spend as much time as you can with your annoying little sister. Once you go to college, you will miss her more than you care to admit. Appreciate her for the beautiful, intelligent young woman that she is. It is okay to take Mr. Snuggles with you to school. He will help you get through a lot of rough nights. Be good to your parents. They are the ones that will pay all of your bank overdraft fees and send you $200 a month so you don't have to work. Last but not least, thank Mr. Davis. Not all of your college professors will be as loving and supportive as he is.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back to high school I would tell myself to prepare more academically in high school. Spend more time studying so that it carries over to college life. Don't be afraid to make new friends. Get ready for the time of your life.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is very focused on the non-traditional adult learner. Anyone with a passion to learn should attend this school regardless of your ethnic or religious background.
