This school is the perfect small town university in this nation. It is defiantly a great fit for anyone who doesn't want a lot of attention placed on them but wants to improve themselves quietly or by their own standards then this is the best place possible. I have been at this particular university for two years now, and i have worked my way past my first failed class to making a 3.0 GPA. All has been because of my teachers and friends I've made here since leaving my comfort zone in my other little town school Jellico High school. I would recommend this school to anyone in this world.
Review University of the Cumberlands
Living on Campus is awesome! Although the rooms are a little small it makes you bond with your roommate or roommates better. Everyone in the community of the school are always so friendly. They have a lot of different amenities on campus like the swimming pool, weight rooms,indoor track, and, kind of like a game room.
Coming to the University of the Cumberlands was the best decision I could have ever made. This beautiful university offers a family environment with plenty of opportunities for everyone. The small class sizes and effort the professors put into teaching make the cost worth it. I am confident that I am getting the best education possible and will be able to find a job in my field without difficulty when I graduate. I have also made so many lifelong friends and connections through this University that I am forever grateful for.
