  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    As a prospective student, the campus seems inviting and friendly and the dorms look PHENOMENAL; undoubtedly the best in the country. The food isn't bad, either. One of my top choices for four years running.

    The University of Kentucky is a wonderful and welcoming school for people of all ages, races, religions, and other wonderful attributes that make it even better. School spirit is something that everyone has because what's better than a wildcat? Everyone here is super helpful and will feel like they belong as soon as they arrive on our beautiful campus.

    I've spent a week on campus each of the past 3 years. As a prospective student, what I've seen of the campus and dorms looks great and inviting. Also, the food at The 90 isn't bad, either.
