University of Pikeville Reviews
I like the small class sizes and the small campus. However, the campus is very boring. I wish there were more places to sit outside and more places to do homework. The library is never the quiet space it should be. The cafe is pretty terrible. Selection is somewhat wide but the menu choices are quite repetitive. Parking on campus absolutely sucks. The parking garage is a complete disaster when classes get out for the day. I think Upike could do a much better job in admissions and financial aid with helping you find outside scholarships instead of just referring you to the internet. Overall my experience hasn't been anything like I expected it would be.
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
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.
