Eileen Mary, Graduated from University of Kentucky
Deciding to attend University of Kentucky was one of the best decisions that I have made in my life. Coming from NYC I did not know a single soul there but I knew from the moment that I stepped on campus that I had made the right decision. I made friends in an instant through the clubs and organizations that I became a part of. It has great opportunities for every student, no matter what you are interested in! The first week of orientation is great, you have a peer group and attend many of the activities together which is how I discovered all of the clubs and organizations. At the end of K Week there is a HUGE water balloon fight put on by the Christian Student Fellowship which holds the Guinness World Record, it is so much fun! The teachers are great especially if you need assistance and if you are struggling in any of your classes there is peer tutoring also available. Math is my weakness and the tutoring was a life saver! I lived in Blanding Tower which yes it is very old but so many students live in the Blanding Kirwan Complex so there was never a dull moment. They just finished building a lot of new student living spaces and I hear those are amazing. If you are looking for school spirit no need to look any further, every student bleeds blue, Go Wildcats! While football may not be our greatest sport, come winter our basketball team is great to cheer for! The team has 8 National Championships and you will follow the teams for the rest of your life, I graduated in 2013 and have watched every basketball and football game since! I could go on and on about how great University of Kentucky is, but you should visit and see for yourself!
