Which do you think would be a nicer environment for an older (30+) student?

UK, I'd actually say NKU or a smaller school for an older student..

yeah, actually NKU is prob better spot (and easier on the $) than UK for someone who is more young professional age like yourself.

People have a good time there, but minus the 19 year old frat / sorority stuff you find at UK.

But if you compare just to UofL, i'd still say UK is a better and I do know several people who have gotten graduate degrees there in late 20's who have had a great time in lexington.

UL seems a little more diverse than UK with regard to age. It's a commuter college with lots of people who work and go part time. So you have more students who are older, working and going to school as well.

To follow up, almost 20% of undergrads at the University of Louisville are part time, while less than 10% are part time at UK.
College Toolkit: College Profile for University of Louisville - General Information
College Toolkit: College Profile for University of Kentucky - General Information

At the risk of generalizing, part time students are many times working and going back to school at a later age, so my guess is that UL has more older students. I've spent time on both campuses and that seems to be my experience as well.

I can't find a breakdown of the age demographics, however. This is just my educated guess.

That is not really the case anymore...UL now has several thousand living in dorms, and several thousand more living right near campus. It is no longer a commuter school by any means, although there is a decent percentage who commute.
