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.
Review Your College
The teaching staff is phenomenal! The administration is awful. The school is horribly disorganized and desperately needs order. I'm not sure I would come here again if I had it all over to do.
Kentucky State overall is a great school, this is my second year at this school. I'm a out of state student so this experience was a total shock at first, but once I had got adjusted to it I ended up loving it.
