    I can't wait to live on campus in the new Champions Court 1 dorms. I am so excited to be in the Engineering Program and for the people I will meet. To me UK will be the place where I will love and call home.

    For a Kentucky university, UK is quite large. It can be overwhelming here if you are not the type of person to speak up and be heard because there are simply so many people, especially in the entry-level courses. Academically speaking, it is a good school with good programs and many teachers that are willing to work with you, so as long as you can get involved and learn how to stand out a bit, you will be just fine here.

    I can't say much because I haven't started yet. But overall the new dorms look great. The campus feels like a college. I have been at some schools that feel like an industrial park.

    This school is a waste of money. There are much better colleges that I could have chosen from in Ohio.

    Deciding to attend the University of Kentucky was easily the greatest decision I have ever made. This is a top-tier institution with much more to offer than meets the eye. The rating I choose for my school is off the charts and is simply too high to measure.

    The university of Kentucky is three things. Big, busy, and challenging. I say big to describe not only the universities size but the opportunists that abound at UK. whether its career fairs to set you up with internships or scholarships to make your education cheaper. When I say busy I'm not just talking about your course load and the amount of homework you will have. I mean to say there is always something going on. Whether it be a basketball game, fraternity meeting or study session. Now to my final point challenging. Yes you will be challenged and pushed in your courses and major but you will also be pushed as a person to grow and reach your true potential.
