University of Kentucky Reviews
Review University of Kentucky
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.
The campus has taken steps to promote awareness even before students arrive on campus for the 1st time. Then this awareness and potential problematic behavior are assessed again toward the end of the 1st semester. The campus has developed "safe" walking paths across campus which are patrolled regularly and are well lit at night. Volunteer cadets provide free transportation across campus until midnight during the week. More is always possible! Actually I believe that safety can only go so far, students need to be held accountable for their behavior. Assault is unacceptable. Abuse is unacceptable. Until universities make these individual publicly accountable for their deeds, rather than keeping quiet in feat of bad publicity things won't change fast enough. Until society point its finger toward the perpetrator, instead of the victim, things won't change fast enough. The national statistics of 1 in 5 college women experiencing some sort of assault or harassment on a campus ought to shame us as a society.
The University of Kentucky has may unique types of activities for every student on campus! The academics are great, with professors willing to help you at all times! I'm in the college of nursing and all of the professors and advisors are great and always willing to work with you! Campus and the local area are great places to find food, entertainment, or to catch a cats game! The athletics are great events to go to and meet people. The dorms are campus are amazing! Most of them have your own private bedroom with tempurpedic beds.
