Placed in the middle of a small town in southwest Kentucky sits the beautiful campus of the University of the Cumberlands.

In this school, you can have first hand experience with what you want to do.

My brother, Ben LeMaster, attends this school, and he enjoys getting to work the games and have first-hand experience on working with the players.

He has also been welcomed in to the football team with open arms, and says the campus is beautiful and small, making it easy to get to
classes.

Cumberlands has 13 male and female sports, two COED sports, along with many other clubs. You are sure to find your place on campus.

The campus has a large cafeteria along with three on campus restaurants including Chik-fil-A, Starbucks, and a place called Tossed Selling Pizza and Salad, beautiful churches, and original and new dorms.

The dorm rooms range from a normal-sized dorm room that has a bathroom on every floor, and suites with three rooms holding two students in each room, a living room, and a bathroom.
My parents and, sister, Emma, also attended this school, and wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

“The school community was overall very close-knit. Everyone knew everyone and were friendly with each other, teachers, staff, coaches, and students alike. It was like home away from home,” says Emma.

My mother also says, “The small class sizes made it easy to connect with professors, some who still remember me to this day.” She also enjoyed being able to continue her athletic journey on the cheerleading team.

My father has, on the other hand, a different attachment to the school.

Without the amazing faculty, or more specifically to him, the football coach, he would’ve never thought to attend any college after high school, but Cumberland recruited him on to the football team.

Outside of the degree he earned, he made great friendships that are still intact today.

To him, the school promoted ‘front porch’ values that helped build the character he has today with respect to faith, family, and friends.

This is a school full of heart and pride with teachers who want the best for you.

This school will give you everything you need to be successful in your future.

Making it fun and simple, University of the Cumberlands is just for you.
