I'm addicted to Papa Johns pizza. There I said it! They have the best prices and the sweetest delivery people and they're just really excellent. I wish there were more places than pizza that delivered though. There's a Chinese place downtown, Peking Express I think. It's not as sit-down oriented as the Peking in Coal Run. But neither place delivers. I saw a sign for a taxi and delivery service last year that I never got around to trying out so we'll see what that's about. But I mean, I love places in Pikeville to eat. Usually I end up at Applebee's at least once a week with my friends. I'll probably be going to the Bank more often now that I'm 21. ;3

Review Your College
Students receive free tuition through the Pikeville Promise Scholarship that all students receive upon admission. However, this and other scholarships are subject to change in amount based on the need of others. Meaning that they reserve the right to take back any funding from you up to a certain date is you happen to earn additional (private) scholarships. Beyond federal aid that you get anyway, the financial aid office is extremely unhelpful when looking for outside scholarships. When asked, I was told to "look online." If you qualify, I strongly recommend becoming a work study. The hours are very flexible and many supervisors will allow you to work on homework if there's nothing to do during work hours.

The library would be better if the people in there for their study hall for athletics were actually studying - and not taking up all the computers to watch YouTube videos. Some students actually need to use the computers for assignments. The student lounge just seems dark and scary and not very inviting. I get that they're making an effort though - I've been in there a couple times but it's just not my "go to" place. Now for green spaces - I really really really wish that big plaza had been a quad. It was just begging for some shade trees and pretty little walkways. But no. It's just slabs of concrete with a big ugly obelisk that NOBODY likes. Students didn't vote for that monstrosity. The money could have been put to better use. Benefactors names on park benches or trees. Not ugly bricks on the ground. As far as campus activities go, we've got this in the bag. Between office for student success, sga, student activities committee, director of student life, etc etc etc PLUS all the individual events put on by organizations there's plenty to do on any given day of the week. The thing is, nobody goes. And they say they never know about it but we put flyers up and send out emails and even write on the windows in big black letters for people to see and they don't show up. So idk what else to do. Now for arts, both visual and performing. We're housed on a single floor of Record Memorial. The music department has two faculty offices and we share the dressing rooms/practice rooms and sometimes can't even use those when the nursing students downstairs are testing. And the art department has two studios and two faculty offices, one of which is located within a studio. The entire building shares a single copier/printer system as well so if choir needs sheet music and nursing needs powerpoint packets there's a forever long wait. It's no bueno.
