What Students Say

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... Read More

Whitney N. Scott, Class of 2014

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.

Jennifer Mooreheaf, Class of 2013

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... Read More


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 (you just have to ask for help!), and the amount of resources on campus are overwhelming. UK offers the Writing Center, the MATH center, the STUDY (a free tutoring center), the Johnson Center (one of the best gyms I've ever been to), the Student Clinic (free to all full-time students), transportation options on campus, and much more! I know this sounds like a cheesy commercial testimonial about the greatness that is UK, but this is coming directly from a student who has paid for a college education, and believes that she got what she has paid for.

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!
