What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
my school, although huge, makes you feel like your at a small school with professors who actually care for your academics; my school works very hard to make sure that we the students are getting the help we need no matter what subject in school or what problems in life, there's always help. importantly, this school works hard to get you involved so that you can make friends and just be connected!

University of Kentucky is a prosperous community for many students. I am out of state and I feel like I have lived in Lexington, KY my whole life. Teachers are here to help and students are friendly, I give UK a 10/10.
