At Kentucky Christian University students will experience a unique off-campus community life that is unlike that of other universities. KCU is located in a quaint town known as the “Heart of the Parks“, in the beautiful foothills of Eastern Kentucky. In this small town you will discover genuine people, friendly smiles, and a peaceful environment that allows students to focus more intently on their education without all of the distractions. While it is true that Grayson, Kentucky may not be a booming metropolis, it doesn’t mean there is a shortage of off-campus activities to get involved in!
Just 15 minutes from campus, students will discover three state parks that offer a wide variety of recreational activities which include hiking, biking, caving, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, camping & much more! Each park offers a unique landscape and unique activities that make for a good time with friends year round. Plan day trips to get away on the weekend and explore each park and all that they have to offer.
