#FlashbackFriday to last SPRING! We can’t wait until the temperatures are a little warmer and the flowers are blooming! Are you ready?! #seeblue #campus #sharethelex #universityofkentucky #bbn http://ift.tt/1e9ych6
I know a lot of you all will be heading to UK for Merit Weekend soon! Enjoy the experience, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the process. I’ve gotten some good feedback from these kinds of posts lately. Enjoy your trip!
Since recipients of this year’s competitive scholarships are about to find out whether or not they will be awarded their scholarship, I figured I would ask if you all had any questions concerning the process! I’m a 2013 Singletary Scholar and would love to help. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns! Thank you all.
Anonymous asked: Hi there! I am a high school senior, and I have just received my acceptance letter to the honors program as well as an acceptance to the Honors Living Learning Program. Could you explain the difference to me (like are there additional requirements for the LLP or other benefits)? Also, is it possible to still live in the Central dorms if you're just in the honors program and not in the Honors Living and Learning Program? Thank you in advance! (:
Congratulations on being accepted to the Honors Program and the LLP! There aren’t really additional requirements for the LLP, other than attending events in your hall. Most LLPs require that you take part in at least a few events per semester, but that’s not hard because there are all different types of events from which to pick. There’s definitely something for everyone!
It is possible to live in New Central without being in the LLP, but it is definitely recommended that you take part. It doesn’t add much to your schedule, but it definitely helps you get involved and really enjoy your time in the residence hall.
Once again, congratulations on your acceptances, and we hope you’ll choose UK and join the Honors program! Let us know if you have any further questions! #seeblue
Anonymous asked: Will you all have the classes available for the Fall 2014 semester online before Merit Weekend (March 7-8)?
The course catalog was just released this week! You should be able to access it here:
You can search for courses and try and get an idea of what you’d like to take. But at Merit Weekend, they’ll help you choose classes and get registered, too.
Good luck! Can’t wait to have you on campus this weekend! Let us know if you have any more questions!
Anonymous asked: How hard is it to get into a sorority at university of kentucky? Like do you have to have a perfect body or teeth or do they look at grades and academics? Does everyone typically get a bid?
I am in a sorority here at UK, going through recruitment and joining a sorority was one of the best experiences I have had here at UK. The Panhellenic community is very diverse. Girls in every chapter come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have unique qualities that they bring to their individual sorority. Recruitment is a mutual selection process, meaning both potential new members and chapters have a choice in who goes where. Recrutiment is all about finding the place that you feel at home, and the system really does cater to helping girls find the sorority they were meant to join.

Tonight was the last night that Polson and Hood would ever play in Rupp. Congrats on a great career at UK, boys! Photo compliments of the Kentucky Wildcats fan page on Facebook. Go Cats.
Happy Mardi Gras, #BBN! We know that the Mardi Gras colors are purple, green and gold but we prefer #seeblue and white! #universityofkentucky #gocats http://ift.tt/1kVgTVH

Just in case you didn’t know, UK had a snow day today! Here are the best ways to get in touch with the University about events going on around campus and overall news bulletins.
1. Follow us on here, of course.
2. Look on social media websites (Facebook, Twitter) for updates.
3. Check the UK website.
4. Sign up for UK alert.
Hope this helps! Happy snow day.
Come cheer on the Cats at Rupp as they take on the University of Alabama! Tip-off is at 9 PM. Go Big Blue!
The lawn of the #WTYoung library became slopes today! #seeblue #seesnow #kentuckywildcats #ski #college #UniversityofKentucky —- Our wonderful photographer friend @markcornelison took this amazing shot on campus today. http://ift.tt/1diJiDy
Today the University of Kentucky has canceled classes for the second time this semester! This is unheard of as it is very rare for UK to let anything get in the way of classes. UK has a dreamteam of sidewalk scrapers, snow shovelers, and roadway salters that usually make sure everyone is perfectly capable of getting to class, no matter the temperature or weather outside. It looks like they were no match for this ice storm and I’m not complaining! I’m spending my snow day catching up on laundry, homework, reading, and sleep. This will probably be our last one of the semester so I’m trying to make the most of it!
Snow Day at #UK! Share your #UniversityofKentucky snow pictures with us using the hashtag #seesnow - have fun and be safe if you are out sledding or building snowmen! #seeblue #sharethelex #bbn #kentucky #winter #snow http://ift.tt/NMSfeJ
browniesloth asked: Hello there! I hope you had a fun time at Dance Blue :) I am attending UK this coming fall and I was wondering when I could expect to hear about any competitive scholarships. I have checked the website and I know the deadline to submit was January 15th, but I couldn't find anything about when to expect acceptance or rejection. Thank you!
We definitely had a great time at Dance Blue! We are excited to hear that you’ve chosen to join us this fall! Congratulations!
The website suggests that decisions will be made by late February, but with so many great applicants, the process can take a little longer than expected. I am sure you will hear back soon! Rest assured that the committees are working hard to let you know as soon as possible.
Thanks for your patience! Can’t wait to have you on campus with us this fall! Good luck and #seeblue!
