Did you know that hundreds of ping pong balls were dropped off the top of POT today? Some of the balls had corresponding numbers on them for prizes, while others were ordinary. It was so interesting and fun to see them all fall! I was sure to snag one as a souvenir. Happy Wednesday!
Happy Earth Day, everyone! Did you know that UK is very pro-green? In the Johnson Center, the stationary bikes are able to harness the energy input from students. This energy is used as the primary power source for the building. There’s your fact of the day. Seeing blue is seeing green. Happy Tuesday!
Did you know that UK has an account on almost every social media website? Not only that, but many programs and organizations have their own accounts! We are on facebook, twitter, instagram, youtube, flickr, pinterest, google+, foursquare, LinkedIn, iTunesU, and (obviously) tumblr. A few of the UK accounts I follow besides the general University of Kentucky are the College of Arts & Sciences, Honors Program, Central Hall (where I live), and UK Admissions. Follow us!
May 1st is the deadline to sign up for your summer advising conferences- don’t miss it! Here are a few tips for gearing for scheduling of your classes:
1. Look nice! During this conference, you will take the photo for your UK Wildcard and, unless you lose your Wildcard, that picture stays on it for the rest of your time at UK.
2. If you’re pre-professional (such as pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-law, etc), look up the pre-requisites beforehand. At the conference, you’ll be placed with an advisor within your department and they may not know the necessary prerequisites for every professional school.
3. Be open to meeting new people! I can’t even count the number of people I know who met their roommate, best friend, or boyfriend/ girlfriend at one of these advising conferences. This is a great time to get to know UK’s campus and the rest of your freshman class!
I hope this helps! Just relax, pay attention, and SEE BLUE! :)
The grounds of Maxwell Place are stunning in the spring!
Maxwell Place, built in 1871, is an Italianate brick villa located in the heart of the University of Kentucky campus and has been home to 10 of UK’s 12 presidents. #seeblue #sharethelex #universityofkentucky #uk #kentucky #lexingtonkentucky #spring #flowers http://ift.tt/1jrXGZ2
