    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.

    It is a great school with a wide array of opportunities and Majors. The Greek life has grown to be a very influential part of campus. Athletics are always fun if you are a fan of the school

    It is big, really big. Not just the campus, but the obsession with their basketball team. It's almost like a religion.

    UK is very open to student diversity, I've never met anyone who hasn't been open to opinions. They have many great clubs and several student organizations to get involved in and doing so really helps when meeting people you'd want to call friends. (Also Fraternities and Sororities) It has bad parking, this is the only downside to going there, but if you're willing to catch a bus or walk then it's perfect for you!

    A great student body that balances school spirit, academics, and fun! There's nothing like cheering on UK athletics, but you know where to find everyone come exam time. I especially love the people I've met in Lexington.
