With a two-year $100,000 grant from the Louisville-based Gheens Foundation, the University of Kentucky is launching a pilot initiative entitled 1G2UK focused on improving retention and graduation rates for first-generation college students from Jefferson County.

Coordinated by UK Assistant Director of Admissions Anna Hays Taul, 1G2UK features a series of events culminating with a campus tour. Here are the activities planned for spring 2014:

Campus Visit: Saturday, February 22nd, 2014
The culminating event for 1G2UK has finally arrived! A free shuttle will transport students and guests from Louisville to Lexington for a full day of fun while getting the chance to visit campus and interact with the First Generation staff and students!
