Anonymous said: We have a future Wild Cat on our hands (hopes to attend fall of 2015) and need to plan ahead for days to take off at our business. Wondering if you can tell us dates to plan ahead for in the 2015/2016 calendar. Move in date for freshman (she is interested in greek life) and any parent weekend(s) or breaks. I know we are early asking this, but we have a hectic business and need to plan ahead. Much Thanks!

Hey there!

We are glad your family is thinking so far ahead and is so eager to get your student here! Unfortunately, we don’t have that information out just yet. The website below is a link to our page with all our available information about academic calendars. Keep checking back, and we will get the information for next year posted as soon as we know it! 

http://www.uky.edu/registrar/registrar-academic-calendar

The calendars for this year and past years should be able to give you a *rough* idea of when events will be, but there are no guarantees that next year will be organized the same way.

Thanks again for your enthusiasm! We can’t wait to see your family here at UK. Please let us know if you have any more questions!

Anonymous said: When do incoming freshmen purchase books? Prior to their first class or after the class meets?

Hey there! 

We’re excited you’ve decided to come to UK! Buying textbooks can be a stressful adventure, but we’re here to help! The truth is that it’s really up to you - buying ahead can sometimes be cheaper, because you can order online from sites that offer discount textbooks. But then you run the risk of buying books you won’t use very often or at all. If you choose to buy your books after your first class meeting, they can be a bit more expensive, or sometimes out of stock. But the upside is that you are more likely to understand the true requirements of the class. 

Whenever you choose to get your books, remember to consider all your options - renting, used books, online discount stores, and checking prices at different locations. There are lots of ways to minimize how much of your hard earned cash you pour into books for the semester! 

Good luck! Let us know if you have any more questions!

We’re just a few weeks from the start of the semester but many of our student leaders are already hard at work preparing for the year. Yesterday students from the #UK Center for Community Outreach took a bus tour of Lexington and met with many of our community partners about volunteer opportunities for UK students! Visit uky.volunteermatch.org to connect with the #UKCCO and get involved in service! #seeblue #seeservice #communityoutreach #sharethelex #universityofkentucky made with @squarefx http://ift.tt/XN0DQF

It’s #ServiceDogWeek so of course we had to share a picture of our favorite service dog, Maddie. If you’re interested in training a service dog, get connected with 4 Paws for Ability here on campus! #seeblue #universityofkentucky #sharethelex #servicedogweek #bbn #memorialhall #seeservice http://ift.tt/1sBjeJR
