I went from dreading the idea of Lexington in the middle of nowhere to absolutely falling in love with the area after this last weekend's ASW. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. Talking to current students and hearing their first hand experiences said a lot, for me. Seeing laptops, purses, books, etc literally left unattended in the library completely boggled my mind. (My UG is in a fairly big city where campus thefts feel like an everyday thing.) It's one thing for all the brochures to talk about the honor code, but to see it in play really told me a lot.
No, it's not DC in terms of night life, but everyone I talked to said that social events are not an issue. They make up their own fun, and they all seem very close.
If you couldn't make it to the ASW, visit, visit, visit as soon as possible if you can. The area isn't for everyone, but you just might fall in love with it too.
