Downtown Somerset to welcome 4-year university

SOMERSET, Ky. (WKYT) – A four-year university is set to be built in downtown Somerset.

“You know a four-year college is always good in any town. And Somerset is big enough to support a good size college,” said Ron Sprinkle, whose granddaughter teaches in Somerset.

Described as ‘a place to teach you how to think, not what to think,’ by Somerset Mayor Alan Keck in an announcement video, the University of Somerset is a private, nonprofit liberal arts school.
