Great job with campus tours. Grounds are clean and have a rich history - very welcoming. Everyone is friendly and very helpful. Just ask anyone there where to eat, etc and they'll probably walk you to where you need to be.

I am a UK alumnus. I am becoming more and more ashamed of that. UK is destroying all its older buildings in order to replace them with newer, more expensive ones. Don't let the picture-postcards and Big Blue fool you. This school is about money,...More

visit the Arboretum and check out the library too. Since you are coming in from out of town it sounds like I would also check out some of the local eats.
