Graduation Year: 2009

Great school and offered a one of a kind MSACC program that incorporated the CPA exam.

Degree: International Relations and National Security Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

Excellent education. Prepared me for a professional job and now I am headed into a top-tier grad program. Big state school, so it is what you make of it. Great faculty though and lots of resources- just use them! Majored in international studies and studied a foreign language. Loved Lexington to boot.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2010

I think college is pretty pointless for a degree such as mine. If you know that you want to be a doctor, or a nurse, or a teacher, or a layer, then college is great. But if you don't know what you want to do, you're really just putting yourself in a very expensive box. You'd be better off taking time out of high school to travel, work different jobs and find your passion before trying to develop a passion while going into mass amounts of debt. UK was hit or miss. Some classes changed my life, but many I can't even remember.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a large party school, that focuses on sports and greek life. Some of the grad programs are ok- especially med school and psychology, but there are a lot of bureaucratic obstacles, department politics, and general mistreatment of students.

Degree: Natural Resources Conservation and Research, Other
Graduation Year: 2009

Excellent experience and unique degree program. I had knowledge and experience to get a job in my field after graduation. You have to really make the experience your own by carefully choosing your internships and focus area - this will set you apart in a large student body.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2008

My initial academic adviser was terrible, though during my junior year I was given an adviser within my college which helped tremendously. I lived in the south campus dorms for the first 2 years, which were fine. Almost all of the gen-ed classes up to 200 level contained 200+ students which was not the best environment.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The campus was beautiful however I sensed a focus more on athletics than academics. The school is really large so if you want the more one-on-one feel then I would not recommend this campus for you.

Degree: Hospitality Administration/Management, General
Graduation Year: 2011

UK is a wonderful school. It has a beautiful campus, plenty of opportunities to be involved, and some great teachers. The library is a great addition with plenty of resources. The athletics are very fun and involved. It's an all around beautiful and fun place to get a quality education.

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2014

There's a lot you have access to. Facilities, study help, clubs, sports, community. Many classes with many professors, most of which are more than willing to help you if you ask for it. The advisor you're assigned is NOT always the right one for you. Shop around and look up and meet different advisors in your college. Not every student in your major plans to go down the same path as you and certain advisors will have a better idea of how to guide a student in your major with your goals in mind. I learned that the hard way, though just in time to graduate in only 4years. Be open to opportunities. Even if something is only somewhat related to your major, jump in anyway. It will help you feel out for yourself your likes dislikes and strengths and you will be more rounded out overall. Take this time to take those chances, they will never be as affordable and as accommodating as they will be during your time as a student.
