Will this ever happen? I would like to see eastern Kentucky get a university that actually offers students fields of study that leads to jobs. Morehead State is a joke.

Why insult me? I asked a question. I live in northeast Kentucky and I get no news from this area. I would like to see eastern Kentucky have an alternative to MSU. I'm sorry if I don't get the inside humor or vibe, but I would like a legitimate response from someone.

Upike is not just the alternative, it is the logical choice now for people in eastern KY. Look at their fields of study.

Are you not aware that Pikeville College is now the University of Pikeville? I am pretty certain that made the news in northeastern Kentucky too. It was definitely in the Lexington Herald.

Wow, I certainly stepped into it here, didn't I?. Ok, I know NOTHING about U-Pike. I do know they do not have full public university status. The dispute was over curriculum. I was told they were planning a pharmacy school. They already have a medical school. Surely, in time they would be more of an asset than Morehead State, surely. All I meant to say was that i think Pikeville deserves a chance at having a fully state funded university. Again, STATE-FUNDED is the operant word. It is private now. What I am asking is this:Is there any word circulating about it becoming a PUBLIC university? I hope this clears up any misunderstanding.

when It became Upike, it became a state funded school, or at least I think it did... unless I am mistaken

The intention was to have it become a state school. The other state schools fought that happening. The other state colleges/universities were concerned that it might impact their funding. Wasn't Morehead one of those schools?

Morehead absolutely was/is one of the schools, yes. MSU has had a good little self-perpetuating racket going for several years. They do not do right by their students at all. I wouldn't care if they closed MSU's doors for good and sent the money to U-Pike.

Nope, still a private University. They only changed the name. None of the other public schools in the state want competition. They're afraid they'll lose their funding if another school joins, but in reality they don't lose a dime. A rising tide floats all ships.
