The facilities overall are in need of improvement

My instructor has been to many seminars making me feel confident in her abilities

The Teachers here really know their subjects and care for the students

At upike they make sure drugs are not used anywhere around the campus and they make sure they stop it if they can smell or hear about it

Health & Safety:
I never felt unsafe on campus because campus police was always around when they need them.

The academic program is good because how they teach

the weather is not that bad at pikeville. Everybody know its snows when its cold. It also can get really hot ,but it do not affect our campus experience.

Theres something for everyone. From fast food to sit down and relax.

Close to home, campus is small, everyone knows everyone.
College Junior 2013-06-06T02:47:58Z
It is closer and has a better schedule for my family and workload.
College Junior 2013-06-06T02:47:28Z
I have seen no drug use on campus. I have walked many halls and still haven't seen any use.

Financial aid was very helpful in the area of assisting and letting you know the option available.
College Junior 2013-06-06T02:45:48Z
I do not stay on campus housing and have not taken a tour.
College Junior 2013-06-06T02:44:57Z
I enrolled in nursing a UPike because it is closer to my home. However, I do think their tuition rate is a little over board.
College Junior 2013-06-06T02:43:44Z
I have just started a Upike and so far everyone has been extremely helpful and courteous. I have enjoyed orientation and registration. The financial aid office was helpful in letting me know of what to expect and how long things should take.

Our financial aid process at our school is very helpful. Even though sometimes you must check and make sure everything is taken care of on your account you still must make sure that the office is on their toes about the issue. They can help you make the right decisions about loans and help you use your money the right way toward your schooling. I would suggest that you file your FASFA as soon as you can that way that you can make sure you get the most amount of financial aid that you can receive.

Getting into this program is very simple. The only requirement of declaring this as a major is to take the COM courses that are offered at the University. There was no special application process to actually get into the program. You just declare it as your major when ever you would like to. There are also other courses required for the major that go out of the COM class spectrum. The courses that are offered here are geared towards making you a well rounded student and individual.The tips that i would provide to incoming students to the University of Pikeville would have to be, if you really wold like to major in Communication I would try and declare it as soon as possible so that you are able to graduate on time.

There are not many classes for Math majors at Pikeville. All other majors seem very open with classes and have many people for each one. I have maybe 5 people in my math classes and they are very hard. I do not have any concerns finding a job because there are plenty of accounting jobs out there today.
College Sophomore 2013-04-10T18:23:28Z
The local weather does not really have an effect on campus experience. Pikeville is a beautiful place, either in the snow or rain or sunshine. There are not very many places to hang out while its cold outside for students, but once its warm out, that is all people do.
College Sophomore 2013-04-10T18:21:38Z
There are many places to eat in Pikeville, a variety of places. They are reasonable on prices and are very convenient. The Mexican restaurants here are very good and are at the top of the game. There is also more common places like Texas Roadhouse and Applebees for others that prefer that.
College Sophomore 2013-04-10T18:19:34Z
I do not receive financial aid, but the people who helped me were very nice and helpful. They did not offer much help outside of the program though which was a con. I would suggest meeting your financial aid adviser in person instead of over the phone, its a lot easier.
College Sophomore 2013-04-10T18:17:02Z
The off campus housing is very inconvenient for the people who live there. The rooms are very nice and are very big and spacious. The only con about these houses are that you have to catch a bus to class or walk a pretty far way. They both have plenty of parking and are pretty safe compared to other dorms. I would not recommend living off campus for a new student.

Guys & Girls:
Everyone that I have met here have been real nice. I'm an nontraditional student and they make me feel like I belong there.

UPike will help you with whatever it is you need help with. They are there for a reason and that reason is to help students.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
