    Kentucky State University is a very small institution so almost every student knows each other which creates a family oriented vibe. We offer a plethora of majors and minors as well as many organizations to join on campus. Kentucky State University has its very own aquaculture program and its own farm. At Kentucky State University, we grow our own food. In addition, Kentucky State University is home of very successful band Midnight Star who performs at the Alumni concerts during homecoming week.
