We hope you are excited to join us at the University of Kentucky! As a kick-off to the fall semester, we have planned an entire week of fun events to welcome you to the University of Kentucky – K Week. With programs and events spanning across five days, there is certainly something for everyone during K Week! This year, K Week takes place from August 18 to 22.
We know from experience that coming to college can be overwhelming as you are meeting new people and finding your way around campus. To help ease the transition, we have recruited 200 of UK’s best student leaders to assist you with your first semester on campus. These students are members of K Crew, and they will be helping you and the other new students on your K Team, a group of 15 – 20, throughout your first week on campus. You will attend a number of K Week events with your K Team, so don’t worry about going to events alone or finding your way around by yourself.
New students living on campus will receive their K Team assignment when they move in, or they can download the K Week app for more information. If you are living off-campus, we will have a off-campus gathering on Friday, August 18 starting at 7:30 p.m. in Patterson Hall. Free parking is available in Parking Strucutre #5.
Many students remember K Week as one of their favorite memories of their first year, and we are so excited for you to have that same experience! Get ready to enjoy your fair share of over 100 events, meet with your K Team four times, and get to know your campus community. The leader of your K Team, a member of the K Crew, will show you around campus, help you find your classes, answer any questions you have about UK, and officially welcome you to the university. With plenty of options for free food and t-shirts, you may not have to purchase a meal or do laundry for a week! Come to UK excited, ready to meet new people, and eager to form a love for our great university! If you have any questions, please email KWeek@lsv.uky.edu.
