Degree: Social Work

The Social Work program is a disaster, from MSW to DSW. Faculty are not prepared to teach, they have no reviewed the syllabus, and can’t answer questions. Courses a poorly constructed. Faculty give no feedback and take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to grade your work. The DSW program is pure busy work. Faculty don’t even understand rules around plagiarism. Save yourself the stress and stay away.

The University of Kentucky is more than a campus, but a family. Being a student means automatically becoming a member of the Big Blue Nation and a tradition of more than just sport-related achievements. As a top research university, UK always strives to maintain its ranks among other universities by pushing and encouraging students. Even with the temperamental weather forecasts, campus is beautiful throughout the year and you are sure to keep those pesky "freshman 15" away from walking to all of... Read More

UK is a great school in a beautiful city with a lot of Kentucky pride. However, after graduating undergrad from a small, liberal arts school, it is difficult to give much praise to the University of Kentucky.

The quality of education I received at UK was subpar to that of Wittenberg University. This may be due to the abundance of opportunities that were available at Witt, small class sizes, professors with passion whose focus was on teaching the students, small community of peers and close social...

I have attended the University of Kentucky for the past 4 years, and can genuinely say that, aside from some minor issues, I have loved every minute of it! The atmosphere on campus is fabulous and there is always something fun going on. The campus feels safe, and although it is large, there are a wide variety of ways to feel at home.

Although many of the core classes you may have at UK will be filled to the brim, 500 students or more, the professors and TA's never fail to assist when you need it... Read More

The only complaint that I have concerning UK, and one that you will hear from many students, is the parking system on campus is not only very expensive, but extremely aggravating to say the least. However, once you learn the in's and out's you should be fine!

Finally, who doesn't love UK basketball season! Come support the Big Blue Nation, and experience life on UK's campus! You won't be disappointed!

So, coming out of a large high school many classmates wanted to attend colleges with small classrooms. I couldn't have cared either way and was just excited to attend UK. At first the class size was so large, up to 500, but now that I'm in my junior year theres only 12 maximum per class. A lot of the classes are in a new style in which you watch lectures outside of class and only come in for labs and tests.

This style deffinitely helped me through my Educational Law class. It didnt hurt that the... Read More
