Kentucky Colleges and Universities

 

Colleges and Universities in Kentucky

Kentucky is home to America's greatest horse race, but also offers 350 miles of Mammoth Caves to explore, and distills famous bourbon sold worldwide. Kentucky is home to more than 75 colleges and universities with pedigrees as venerable and solid as the thoroughbreds raised in the Bluegrass State. Kentucky can boast of vibrant nightlife in Covington, Lexington, Louisville and Paducah. After all, Kentucky is the birthplace of bluegrass music and country stars Loretta Lynn, The Judds, Billy Ray Cyrus, Dwight Yoakam and Ricky Skaggs. Students at Kentucky colleges and universities can recall exciting basketball rivalries across the state dating back into the 1950s. When class is out, there are 90,000 miles of streams and another 300 miles of undeveloped shoreline to explore for camping, hunting, fishing, hiking and more.
