    I think UK's campus is beautiful especially in the fall and spring. However, the dining and housing on campus is not the best; the rates are rising while the quality is not. The campus-wide events are usually very fun for all types of people.

    Great campus! Very great city to be in (Lexington), and campus is quite large but easy to navigate. Very friendly area, would prefer here over practically anywhere.

    The University of Kentucky is a great university in my opinion. The campus itself is beautiful and most of the professors are good at what they do. It is also very easy to get involved on campus.

Whether you're just being a part of a 30,000 student community and supporting the Wildcats, or working in a small group to promote something you care about, there is a place for everyone at UK.

    UK is a beautiful school with things always going on, always something to be involved with. It has many options for majors although some more specific ones have to be pursued elsewhere. Doesn't offer very good federal aid.

    The University of Kentucky is an ideal college for students searching for a large college with successful sports teams and a large variety of clubs and organizations. However, unlike many large universities, UK is located in the beautiful town of Lexington which is rich in culture and full of remarkable local attractions. The wide variety of majors and classes make it the perfect option for students with unique interests and passions.

    The University of Kentucky is everything I dreamed and more. I have found my place in my major as well as in my sorority. There is a wonderful balance between academics and fun, and campus offers tons of events for you to go meet people and get involved.

    I love how the school and the community is really school spirited. As a big time lover of sports I can definitely see myself at UK. The only thing I am struggling with is I'm afraid there isn't enough diversity.

    The University is large, but they try their best to make it a homey experience. They are stingy with money (like most schools), but work is available. This university is meant for the responsible student, and academically,it is worth the money.
