    It is a large school, which tends to allow some students to get lost but if you are committed to finding a niche or group to help you succeed & encourage you, you will do well. It takes work and commitment but the University of Kentucky is definitely a place that you can succeed.

    -make yourself known in your department. if your major is social work, then go to the school of social work and talk with the administrators and faculty. -apparently, lexington, ky is located in tornado valley. most of the buildings have designated safety rooms. know your buildings and the locations of its safety rooms. -a couple of buildings have rooftops lounges. lexington is beautiful at night. -prepare to do a lot of walking. uky's campus is sprawling.

    apply for early registration date to be applicable for the most financial scholaarships available. be involved on campus. uk and the surrounding city is incredibly bike-friendly. most activities happen didn't the evening, so beware of evening/night classes after.7pm if you can .

    Make sure you work hard! UK gives great scholarships but you need to work for them. AP classes don't hurt.
