Anonymous asked: Im in grade 10 going to high school in Canada and was considering UK for colleges. Is there a list of certain credits or classes I need in order to be eligible for admission ?

Hey there! 

We are so glad you’re considering coming to UK! Because you live in Canada, you’d need to complete the International Application. We have a fantastic International Center here, and the folks over there would love to help you figure out what you need to complete!

This link below is one I think you’ll find helpful. It is a form you can fill out to let the International Center know you’re interested, so they can help you get things planned and figured out!

We’re glad you’re considering joining the Big Blue Nation, and we hope you’ll choose us. Please let us know if you have any further questions or if there are anything other ways we can help you out! #seeblue

It’s a Gorgeous Day!

And, it’s supposed to be a gorgeous weekend! If you’re in the area, be sure to stop my Keeneland for its last weekend until this Fall! It’s a big hit for college students, and I’ll be sure to upload some pictures from my experience this weekend. Have a great Thursday!

Anonymous asked: I have applied for PhD Program in Material Science Engineering Program. What is the tentative period when decisions are mailed out.

Hey there! 

We’re glad to hear you’re considering us for your Graduate School experience! We focus more on undergraduate admissions, but here is a link to the Chemical and Materials Engineering page about applying to the graduate programs, where you can find the email addresses for many of the people involved in the department.

https://www.engr.uky.edu/cme/students/graduate/application/ 

I’m sure that they would be better equipped to answer any questions you may have about the application process. We’re glad to hear you’re considering joining us as you pursue your PhD! We wish you the best of luck! #seeblue

Anonymous asked: I am in 8th grade, how soon can I apply for academic scholarships at UK?

Wow! We love your enthusiasm! Unfortunately, the scholarship application for our Freshman class of 2017 won’t be out for a few years!

For now, you can focus on your grades in High School, as well as preparing for the ACT/SAT, and building up your extracurricular activities for your application! There are lots of ways you can work on preparing for college, but most of the actual applications won’t be available until later.

In the meantime, feel free to come visit us and tour the campus! You can find more details on how to do that here:

Please let us know if you have any questions or if there’s anything else we can do to help you! #seeblue 

Ping Pong Drop

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

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!
