I am currently enrolled in my second year at UPIKE, so I will be a sophomore. Coming from Frankfort, I am so blessed to have enrolled here, and make the connections I have made. I wasn't quite sure about what was in store, but I'm so glad I took the chance to come here. There is such a caring environment for the students and staff that you should feel comfortable 24/7. Class sizes are fairly small, which for me, is fantastic. I am able to learn so much due to the fact that I can have a relationship with my professor, which is so uncommon at bigger colleges in which there is 300+ students a class. There is also so much diversity on campus, which is such a blessing. I can meet and bond with people from all around the world. I cannot wait for this school year, nor the next two after!

The University of Pikeville has many different features that I love. My favorite thing is how small it is and how friendly the people are. The teachers are so nice, and they care about you as the student the most. They are so understanding and willing to help. They become people you know well and not just your professor. They know you on a first name basis and care about your lives outside of school. The area is small but so nice. It’s right in the mountains so it is beautiful. Almost the whole campus is full of student-athletes, so everyone is so friendly and all the professors understand when you have a sporting event or practice. This college is like my home and I love that about the University of Pikeville.
I am a student athlete and when I visited the campus the coached and academic staff were very helpful. My family and I not only met with the coaching staff and academic advisers, we also were provided a city tour. This gave me a better view of the school as well as the city. although Pikeville is small it is developing, so with the continued student growth and campus development I'm sure I've chosen the right place for me.
