Don't be surprised when, halfway through your freshman year, you have already become too wide for your twin extra-long dorm bed. Beware of the Freshman 15! Kentucky offers a variety of food that has the ability to more than double your size if you aren't careful. Most students seem to feel that it is overpriced because of the convenience, and nobody seems satisfied with the campus dining plan for the Wildcat Card. However, a great way to balance it out is by investing in the Plus Account. This nifty little addition allows you to spend money like a debit card when your meal plan just isn't quite cutting it.
There are great places on campus to get a cup of coffee and slice of cheesecake for late-night studying. Watch out for those late-night munchies! UK offers a fantastic array of pastries, coffees, and sweets for snacking on. They're so convenient and delicious you barely notice just how much you're eating until you can't wear anything but sweatpants! If you live on central campus, definitely plan on spending some time in the legendary K-Lair Grill. You might also want to spend some time working out afterward, though, to keep from getting too pudgy.
