College Life Rating

As a non traditional returning student I am not very involved with campus life but from what I hear from the younger students there is a very happening scene here at UK. I believe that I would have been very involved back in my twenties but now that I am in my thirties I work full time and don't seem to have the time to take part in extra-curricular activities.

College Life Rating

That was so long ago but I do remember utilizing the student center for sorority meetings and functions. It was also a wonderful social gathering place to play card and see your college friends. University of Kentucky, well known for basketball, kept the campus exciting and "bouncing"! There were not many known problems with safety at that time. To note, there was still a lot of separate activities held among the races at that time.
