Top Kentucky Colleges and Universities

June 16, 2013 - 5:25pm

My top 11 picks for Kentucky range from tiny Kentucky Wesleyan College with just over 800 students to the University of Kentucky with an enrollment of over 27,000. My top picks include public, private, religious and secular schools. The admissions standards for these 11 schools vary widely, so be sure to click through to the profiles for more admissions information. The schools were chosen based on first-year retention rates, four- and six-year graduation rates, notable academic strengths, value, and student engagement. See my list of the top Kentucky colleges to find out who made the cut.

Is there another Kentucky college that you think deserves to be on the list? If so, use the comment link below to share your recommendations. I'm a firm believer that the "best" college for your interests, goals and personality may have little to do with my own selection criteria.
