    UK is an amazing school for academics, athletics, and social experiences. If you're searching for a school that can offer a little bit of everything, this is definitely where you should be going. The staff and students are beyond friendly.

    The school is one of the biggest in the state, so it can feel like you are just a number, atleast in your freshman level classes that could have up to 300 people in them. However, with a lot of people here there are also a lot of resources to aid you that a lot of smaller universities may not have. Overall, if you don't mind walking a lot sometimes or riding a bike and if being in a large class doesnt bother you, then this is a good fit.

    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.
