Review Kentucky State University
For 2 summers consecutively I have lived on campus at Kentucky State and the experience is one to live for. Students and Administration on campus are very helpful and vibrant, they speak and always seem optimistic. During my time on campus, I attended several events where students as well as myself enjoyed our entire time their. Although it is an HBCU, the environment was friendly for people of all color.
My experience with Kentucky State University has been awesome, such an amazing atmosphere. You automatically make new friends and feel that every student is family. You can focus on one on one teaching that can enhance your knowledge on a professional level.
