What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I visited the University of Kentucky I fell in love with the campus. Such a beautiful campus and everyone was very friendly. As a minority, I have heard some not so good things about UK but once I toured for myself, that was not the case at all. I am glad I visited and I look forward to attending the University of Kentucky in the fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending the University of Kentucky has been one of my best decisions. As captain of the University of Kentucky Dance Team and a 3rd year member, I have been able to experience every home basketball and football game. Our student section and fan base is always a blast of a crowd to dance for. As far as academics goes, I am in the Gatton College of Business. My advisor is wonderful. I have developed close relationships with multiple professors. Our new student center and career center have excellent resources for career and interview help. Our career fairs are full of potential employers, and real world opportunities. I have developed countless relationships with new peers in many of the different community buildings around campus. Being a wildcat has truly shaped me as a person. I have grown into a person I am proud of, and I would like to thank the University of Kentucky for helping me get to where I am today.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school more than I ever anticipated I would, and I have gone on many other college visits, but none resonated with me the way the University of Kentucky did. The campus is constantly being updated in a way that does not disturb the students but makes the campus so much better, the school takes safety as a priority, and the community is just overall fantastic.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Kentucky, and I am excited to be a student in the fall of 2019. I have grown up visiting the campus, and I am ready to be a student and active participant in all of the activities on campus. This has been my dream - to be a student at UK, and I'm excited for it to finally happen.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Kentucky (UK) is overall an excellent school. The faculty are generally very competent and are very open to questions, feedback, etc. Nearly all of the professors I have studied under have taken a genuine interest in their students and are quite friendly. For instance, I took a class a year ago that was taught by the head of the history department. He still greets me by name every time he sees me! Not surprisingly, sports have a strong presence at UK (go Cats!). Basketball is widely celebrated and UK football is starting to gain intercollegiate momentum. If you're not into basketball or football though, don't worry--midnight hockey games are an option too! The arts have a quiet, but still quite firm, place at UK. The Singletary Center for the Arts maintains an art museum as well as two excellent performance halls. The arts don't stay isolated here in Kentucky--the National Trumpet Competition will be hosted in Spring of 2019 at UK, bringing the best in collegiate trumpet music to the Singletary stages! When you're not studying, UK offers many different clubs and organizations to join. Whether you're kicking heels with the UK Swing Dance club, rushing with Greek life, or joining one of many religious groups on campus, there is sure to be something to do in your spare time. (There might even be a squirrel watching club...) If you're not very social, that's OK. The school doesn't pressure students into joining groups, although it certainly encourages social activity. UK isn't the most academically rigorous school, but it still maintains a good academic program and a healthy social atmosphere. Its location in central Kentucky gives one easy access to many other cities, including Cincinnati, Nashville, etc. I would recommend looking further into UK to see if it's the right fit for you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

overall, the University of Kentucky is a great school they care about the well-being of their students. They put the safety of their students first because without those students UK would not be ale to thrive academics and sports. UK is very friendly and welcoming to anyone on campus which is probably why its an open campus allowing anyone to experience the warmth of the college campus,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UK provides a lot of opportunities to interact with other students through LLP's (Living Learning Programs) as well as Greek life and clubs/extracurriculars. There is a group for everyone and everything. They are also currently doing a pretty good job of diversifying campus, you are able to meet a lot of people of so many different background, from all different places. For being such a big campus, you feel very at home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UK is a great school for those looking to be challenged academically and also looking for a campus that is in the middle, size wise. There is a great mix of people and cultures and you will always feel welcome at different events, as well as always having something to do. UK can become your true home away from home if you let it, and you won't regret it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Kentucky prides itself on its academics, campus, and students. Campus is very lively and is always under development with new buildings or basic construction work, which clearly shows as the campus is absolutely beautiful While some buildings are somewhat old, there are some amazing newer buildings that are a treat to the eye. The student center is a lovely place to hang out between classes, and provides several services at the student's leisure (it has a cinema!) and has an amazing dining hall to boot. There is always something to do on campus and Lexington easily accessible through the bus system, which is free to all current students, so they are never truly stuck on campus. Safety is also a pride of UK with its easily accessible police and services from Wildcab to the Cat's Path to UK Alert, which shows the dedication UK has to safety.
