University of Kentucky Reviews
The University of Kentucky has an environment that offers a wide variety of diversity in a small town feel. As a research university much of its resources go to promoting new discoveries and therefore professors tend to focus on their research. Given this, they offer many opportunities to students interested in pursuing research. While academics and student life are great, facilities leave something to be desired. Much construction is currently underway though!
I really enjoy the University of Kentucky so far. The campus is beautiful (aside from all the construction) and the dorms are very nice and comfortable. As opposed to most dorms at other universities that feel like a prison, the dorms at UK feel extremely homey. The staff has accommodated me well for my mental illnesses. The classes I am currently taking are very interesting, and I am excited to see how the rest of my education here will play out!
The University of Kentucky is a fantastic school for an unbelievable amount of reasons. The class sizes vary in the sense that you can be in a three-hundred-person lecture but the recitation for the class consists of between fifteen to thirty people. Therefore, the TA’s know you and you can get to know the professor as well when need be! The campus is absolutely beautiful to say the least. There are many skeptics out there because how much construction is going on around campus but it is all worth it. In 2016 they officially opened the new business school which is state of the art and is beautiful. However, tuition can be a little expensive for out of students, like myself, so it sometimes scares students off but they do a fantastic job pulling in students from across the country. If I could see one thing change is the parking situation on campus is very clustered and sometimes not everyone gets a parking spot and it becomes very possible to get a ticket by parking somewhere else.
