So my high school son is researching some schools to pursue baseball along with his education and came across this school. Can anyone give me a feel of the school, the town and surroundings. What is the reputation of this school. I saw that they play sports in the "mid south conference". Is there a better school in that league for a college education, sports program, campus and city life for a 4 year education. If you can give me any info on this school or ones in the conference I would appreciate it. He would be coming from the "west coast".

Thank you.

It is a tiny private college nestled in one of the more insular, impoverished areas in the nation. It has about 1,500 undergrads and about 700 post grads, mostly at the medical school. There is no city life. Pikeville is the largest city and it only has about 7,000 people and it will take over 2 1/2 hours to the nearest real big city.

Nobody, except people who live in Eastern Kentucky, knows anything about the school other than it exists. A large number don’t even know it exists.

The site www.collegeconfidential.com has info and you can ask questions on their forum.
See youtube if anyone posted videos or if the college has a website there, some have this.
There are sites with listings of all colleges and information etc.

If urban life is desired, he might look at Thomas More University (KY suburb of Cincinnati).

Lindsey Wilson and Campbellsville might be worth a look. As in definitely visit before deciding. Son would need to be ok with small town and not that close to cities. Probably very different than what used to. Some might make it work, some might not stay long.

I would not choose Pikeville personally.

Coming from west coast of the US? I hope he likes rural small town areas. I love pike county but its not for people who are use to action and suburban life. It may be good there to focus on studies, since its quiet. I think the people are good. I bought land there in 2012 for investment/ homestead recreation reasons. But havent lived there before.
