Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Be very nice to the people handling your financial aid and scholarship renewal forms. They can be your best friends or your worst enemies.
  • Beware of the campus preachers that stroll outside the Student Center. They have a nasty habit of preaching hellfire and brimstone at students as they walk by.
  • Don't bring anything you truly value into the dorms. There is a good chance it will get lost, damaged, or stolen.
  • Have an idea of what floor you need to be going to when you get on an elevator at Patterson Office Tower and prepare to take the stairs between floors.
  • If you plan on joining a Greek organization, bring a chunk of change. It can cost more than $1,000 per semester to belong to such organizations.
  • If you think you are interested in study abroad, the sooner you start making plans and applying for assistance, the better your life will be.
  • Many students meet their future spouses at the University of Kentucky, and then end up sending their kids to UK, as well. There is quite a tradition at UK.
  • Plan on being surrounded by white suburban kids.
  • Plan on having your towel stolen from the showers at least once as a practical joke.
  • Plan on spending quite a bit of time waiting for basketball tickets. Take some books to read if you plan on going to a ticket lottery.
  • The community bathrooms in Donovan Hall have great acoustics and are wonderful for late-night guitar playing and singing.
  • The computer labs will inevitably crash during the week of finals. Don't put a project off until the last minute, as it will more than likely be eaten by a computer.
  • Wear flip-flops in the shower. This piece of knowledge is invaluable.
