Prospective Students

"Finding my focus has been the best thing for me at the University of Pikeville. Going to classes, trying something different, work-study opportunities and meeting new people has helped me figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. The friends you make, being part of extracurricular activities, being part of a family ... that is the UPIKE experience for me."
