This is a pathetic excuse for an educational institution. All they focus on is controlling students and forcing their own ideas on them. If you don't fit into with their specific idea of Christianity, you're disgusting. The academics are a joke, nothing is truly taught. This school feels like attending high school all over again, its very authoritarian.
If you are looking for diversity, this is NOT the place for you. Unfortunately, I was lured in with false promises. There is very little to do off campus and it is in the middle of nowhere. There is nothing that really makes this school special. Only come if you are interested in sports, the ministries, or close to home.
Studying, work and classes sums up my usual week. There’s a lot of homework to be found at any point in the semester and some of the teachers are incredibly demanding. The on campus housing is good in some dorms, bad in others; for instance, in a dorm called “Asher” the sinks are caving in, but in a dorm called “archer” They recently put in good heating and air conditioners. It’s like that everywhere on campus, the older the building, the worse it is, but they do try to rennovate in a timely manner. As for the food options, there’s not many on or around campus. We do have a new Chick Fil A and Tossed in what we call “the grill,” located on the first floor of the Boswell student center, Starbucks is located on the second floor and we have a dining hall on campus that makes the best dinner rolls. For recreation, we have a large swimming pool that has certain times to be used and we have the new Wellness Center that features workout equipment, ping pong tables, pool tables, an Xbox, and most Monday’s have a smoothie night. Off campus there’s practically nothing to do and students spend most of their time at Walmart on the weekends or in Corbin, the next town over, where there is a movie theatre and a few good places to shop. There are some fun activities on campus, usually taking place at the beginning and end of the semester, but for the most part there’s a general focus on studying. That’s UC in a nut shell, it can be an interesting place to go, certainly if you are spiritual in any way shape or form.
I moved to Kentucky to come to school here and it was a leap of faith but I have not been disappointed. There may not be much to do in Williamsburg itself but Knoxville and Lexington are so close! This is the perfect school for students that are outdoorsy. When the weather allows you'll find half the campus is out hiking the mountains and walking trails. The academics are top rate, tuition isn't bad, class sizes are small, and you can always find help. On top of all that- this campus just feels like home.

If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to relax and look forward to the college experience. I imagine that the speech would sound something like this:
“College is not easy. College is not for everyone. But it is for you. You will meet your best friends there. You will come into your own there. You will find yourself.
I know right now it seems like you’re giving up your whole life. And you are, in a way. You are giving up everything you know. But guess what? You’re going to be fine. You’re going to love college more than you can possible imagine.
The best advice I can give you is to be friendly. Meet someone new every day. The more at home you feel on campus, the more you’ll enjoy it. So, don’t worry about what you’re missing at home. Think about what’s going on here. This is your home, at least for the next four years. Enjoy your time here. It’s going to be over before you know it. Enjoy every second.”
there is a lot of diversity through out the school, everyone is nice and most likely plays a sport also.
You shouldn't attend this school if you want to party. This is a very conservative private christian school that stays true to the morals in the bible.
I think that the football team and games are pretty exciting.
That they are smart. Yes, because it is a highly educated school along with high ratings. Most people in my freshman class are majoring or minoring in biology.
Same as above
The academics are great. The teachers really help you understand the material.
It is a very friendly environment and is a great place to go to school
University of the Cumberlands has a very beautiful campus. The architecture of some of the builiding is based off of old architectureal styles which adds a very unique feel to campus. There is also a place set up decidated to 911. Campus itself is nestled in the mountains and when you walk out of all the buildings you can see the beautiful mountians in the distance.
I think the worst thing about the University of the Cumberlands is all the hills, but it is in the mountains so there are going to be some hills.
The size is definitely a huge factor- its fairl small, but not too small. Plus, the campus itself is beautiful. It's definitely something we pride ourselves in.
Someone looking for a great education in a small town setting. If you're looking for a school where the professors care about you both as a student and a person, Cumberlands is right for you.
It is a great atmosphere to be in.
Our school has a great science program, and just recently got a Physician's Assistant program.
The beautiful campus and amazing professors
