100% of students
I am so happy that I have chosen to attend the University of Kentucky! I have my place here as a student and in a social aspect. I have made many friends with people who are in my major that I attend class with. When I am in classes with the same people, it is easy to build a connection. There are many organizations here at the University of Kentucky that are suitable for everyone. The organizations at the University enhance the college experience and make everything worthwhile!
The dining halls do have limited options. There is food in the dining halls that are not suitable for all allergens and I would tell students to be aware of those choices.
UK has many resources, especially for students who are working through school, and lots of financial help. The academic scholarships are massive and there's always more than one way to get more money. In the forestry department, there are plenty of opportunities for internships and paid jobs, as well as friendly staff and wonderful advisors.
The dorms and meal plans are extremely expensive, and you are required to get a meal plan to live in a dorm. Some of the assistance given by Student Support Services is essentially a waste of time, and there are bad professors. Stay as far away as you can from the Chemistry Department. The classes not only are difficult, but the teachers don’t care if the reason you miss assignments was unavoidable (ie; had to take someone to the emergency room).
It's a large and beautiful campus with a lot to explore. The entire campus is in one setting and you don't have to worry about going across town to access a resource. There are several clubs and programs to join and help students that need it. It is a more expensive school, but for what is available in the state it is one of the best options.
The price is higher than most in-state tuition and is public. Sometimes the large size can be overwhelming and makes it hard to make a connection with professors.
I like that everything on campus is semi-close. The campus is big, and there are many events going on constantly. There are many occupation opportunities and internships available. also an abundance of resources for students to use.
I think prospective students need to be aware that there are many things to do. Do not overwhelm yourself and take things a step at a time. It is easy to get caught between many different activities that can interfere with school work.
The University of Kentucky provides a solid educational experience and is filled with people who truly care about you as a person and not just a number!
The dining hall food could be improved.
Very good education, except for the chemistry department.
The chemistry department's goal is to weed everyone out and takes points off of assignments for no reason.
