The vibe of the whole downtown area near U of K is distinctly college town: lots of beer and pizza joints, textbook stores, easy to get around, clean and well-manicured. Makes you want to go back in time and enroll. Not necessarily go to classes but just enjoy the college life in this town!

Went to UK in September 1962 (Yes, I am old!). Returned to visit the campus after approximately 48 years, WHAT A CHANGE! I was able to recognize some of the campus/buildings, actually very little due to poor memory and/or extensive changes, hopefully more of the latter. I remember the Medical Center (relatively new at the time) to be on the very edge of campus, it now looks 10 times larger as well as a vast extension of the city beyond that! Extensive building taking place throughout the campus. I definitely liked the vibrancy of the campus.

Great service and caring staff. My grandfather was there for 2 weeks. The staff was amazing. The cleanliness of the hospital was unlike any I have ever seen. I have worked in health care for 25 years. I watched house keeping clean like I had never seen before. They came in every day and wiped everything in the room including bed rails and tray tables. As if that wasn't enough attention to detail, they change cleaning clothes with each room as to not spread germs from one room to another. When they say sanitize they mean it!!!!! The chemicals the use are very low odor and didn't bother my breathing at all. The entire staff was great.
Riding the golf cart shuttle to the parking garage was a life saver. It is actually much faster than waiting on the large bus. All are courteous and very helpful when you have that lost look on your face.
