    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.

    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.

    The University of Kentucky is a school with limitless opportunities. 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. You are never just another number.

    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.
