Did you know that for every hour each professor teaches at UK, they are required to hold one office hour for their students? The most common place for these office hours to be held is in Patterson Office Tour on the Northern part of Central Campus (commonly referred to at “POT.”) This is a great way to get to know your professors on a personal level and a great opportunity to ask questions if you’re shy to speak up in class.

Hey everyone! If you’re at UK next year and can’t go home for Easter, UK offers a student program at the Singletary Center! If you’re reading this and you’re a current student at UK, be sure to go check it out. There’s no reason to spend Easter alone!

Hello everyone! I heard a tour guide recently say that it’s important for everyone coming to UK to make a UK bucket list. I had never heard that said before, and I realized how useful it could be. It’s easy to say you’re going to do a million things at UK but then never find the time to actually doing them. If you make a bucket list, however, it is easier to incorporate those ideas into your schedule. Try to make two things off per semester, or set a unique goal for yourself. You’ll be surprised how much you have time for that you never even realized, and the memories you make will last a lifetime. Hope this helped! Happy Saturday, and happy almost Easter!

Hey guys! Just wanted to announce that my Honors Sacred Dance class is having a free performance on May 1st! It will take place in the Student Center from 12:30-1:00pm if anyone would like to come see what we’ve been learning all year!

Our class has divided into several groups and each will perform a different sacred dance form. My group will be demonstrating how Shakers used to dance during their worship ceremonies. Other groups will be performing traditional Indian, African, and Native American religious dances. Definitely come out and enjoy the show if you are free!

Hey everyone! Did you know Morgan Freeman came to speak at UK on Monday? The kind of opportunities that UK provides for its students is amazing, and can apply to any student from any background. I’ve loved my time here so far.
Happy Wednesday!

A true #seeblue champion! It was great having UK great Derek Anderson back on campus tonight. He spoke to a group of incoming students about hard work and character. Derek was a member of the 1996 #UniversityofKentucky Men’s Basketball National Championship team and also has an #NBA Championship on his resume. Thank you, Derek! We can’t wait to read your book #Stamina - #weareuk #bbn #DerekAnderson #KentuckyWildcats #BigBlueNation #GoCats - photo by @andybond006 http://ift.tt/1m6re4V

A little snow on this April day. Aren’t the tulips beautiful!? #seeblue Repost from @andybond006 —- Pop Quiz: What season is it in Lexington? | #seeblue #SeeSnow http://ift.tt/1l1YaHI

It’s snowing, and it’s the middle of April. See what I said about Kentucky weather being crazy and how to never bring your winter clothing home too early? I’ve seen tons of people layered in hoodies today because their winter clothes are tucked away. Don’t be that person who gets a cold right before finals! You’ve been warned.

Happy Tuesday!

#MCM #WCS #seeblue #Repost from @coachcaldotcom —- Heads up in the front row. This guy’s coming back for another season. http://ift.tt/1m4e0De

This Saturday, I ran in the Color Me Rad 5K held in Lexington. I heard about the race through one of UK’s sororities’ sponsorship of the event. It was a blast to begin the run in white and end it in pink, purple, yellow, blue, red, and orange with other UK students and the people of Lexington. This race also benefited the Ronald McDonald House! Coming from a small town, I love that Lexington has so many fun activities to fill my weekends. Traveling 5Ks never visited my hometown!
