Student & Graduate Reviews (30)
I'm currently a Junior at UK and I can't express enough how grateful I am for this university. Not only do you get the chance to develop relationships with your professors in a professional way, but you foster lifelong friendships. All members of the faculty are eager to guide students along the way to reach their goals and pursue their wildest dreams. UK gave me a newfound confidence that I didn't know was inside as a first generation, Appalachian student. I feel an overwhelming amount of joy about the decision I made to further my education at this school. I couldn't possibly give it the praise it deserves, but if you're able to adapt and welcome the indepence, this is the school for you. At times it was a bit challenging to stay ahead, but meeting with your professors helps and they're always willing to give you a helping hand or advice on how you can do better. In the end, it's always worth it and you get the most out of the more challenging courses. Every outlet imaginable is at your fingertips. Go CATS!
I cannot express how much my education at the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment had impacted my life and my view of the world. I feel that with my degree in Animal Sciences I am extremely prepared for my future and have come to find my passion in life.
After spending 4 years at this institution, I am pleased to recommend it to anyone that is interested in attending a university in the state of Kentucky. Many say that it is such a large institution, when in reality, most of the classes that are required are small and feel like home. There are wonderful professors in many of the departments, and each helped me prepare for my future career!
The College of Design at the University of Kentucky gave me the best start to my architectural education. The tuition of the state school was affordable, and I feel that my studies prepared me for a career in architecture. The variety of professors was refreshing. Professors encouraged innovation and pushed creativity. The history course helped me understand where architecture came from and where it needs to go. I enjoyed my time at CoD and honestly feel that it prepared me in the best ways.
I cannot express enough how much my time at the University of Kentucky has impacted my life. The education I received in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment in the Animal Sciences department taught me a lot about the world around me and gave me a insightful perspective about life.
The University of Kentucky is an excellent college to pursue a Bachelor's Degree. The campus is safe, friendly, and so big that everything you need is there. The school spirit displayed by faculty, staff, and students creates a feeling of connectedness that stays with you beyond your time in school. Being away from home for the first is scary, especially at a university the size of Kentucky's, but it isn't hard to become adjusted and find a home away from home. I recently graduated in May of 2016 and I can't understand how the past four years went by so fast. I truly did make friendships and connections that I expect to last a lifetime.
The University of Kentucky was a fantastic college to attend for my undergraduate career. The wonderful hodgepodge of people, events, and classes it brought to my life made those four years a time that I'll always be able to look back on with a smile. I never had to worry about being bored at UK; we had a number of different organizations on campus, like a co-ed service fraternity where I made a number of good friends. Until coming to UK, I didn't even realize that such a group existed. The variety and volume of classes offered each semester meant that I was always able to make my schedule work with my busy lifestyle, so I could balance school, friends, and work. Between my classes, my on-campus job, and the clubs I signed up for, I was able to make plenty of friends from outside of my major, like an engineer that I met in an astronomy course or the nursing student who sat next to me in an intro to film course. Within my major, I always felt supported by the professors and graduate students that I met with, going from my first day in Latin 201 until my final semester taking upper-level classes. The curriculum for Classics was strong and creative, (if you've ever been interested in spoken Latin, this is the place to be!) and the professors were not only passionate about their subject but wanted you to feel that passion as well. Overall, I would highly recommend the University of Kentucky to anyone who wants a good college experience for their undergrad years.
University of Kentucky was one of the best decisions I could have made as an undergrad! I loved the school and the positive energy that was carried throughout the campus! I would recommend anyone to go to that school! I'm excited to continue my education for Grad school at Arizona State University, but if I didn't want a different experience for grad school, I would have for sure went back to the University of Kentucky.
As an in state student, I received a full tuition scholarship to the University of Kentucky and began as an Undecided major. During my Sophomore year I declared a major in International Studies with a focus in Culture and the Arts. I switched guidance counselors but found it still difficult to choose a career path during and after my undergraduate career. The University could use more programs and counselors to help students find a path and focus after graduation.
I wouldn't trade my days at the University of Kentucky for anything. I started off as a student-athlete who dedicated 25 plus hours each week to a sport and ended as a regular college with a double major. Entering my fourth and final year as "NARP" (non-athletic regular person) I can say that I found an instant network of colleagues to help advance my academic career. With gymnastics it was very hard to be involved in extra curricular activities that did not involve athletics or required community service. This new "college life" I experienced opened up doors to government connections that have helped me pursue my career in homeland security after I began an internship at the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security. I obtained this internship from talking to professors in the political science department and together they were able to help me intern at KOHS during my fall and spring semester. UK offers great opportunities for any kind of student. Just show you are interested and connections will be made.
