MHA Student Association

The MHA Student Association (MHASA) elects officers annually, and is very active in leading academic, charitable and social opportunities for students. The MHASA organized a welcome event for the first-year students prior to the start of the fall semester along with sharing information during orientation. For interested first-year students, second-year MHA students serve as mentors answering questions and providing information on the UK/Lexington community. Every year, the MHASA coordinates service events with outside organizations, such as the Ronald McDonald House and the Saint Joseph Foundation STARS Gala. One of the unique events occurs every April at Keeneland Race Course—thoroughbred horse racing. The MHASA sponsors a tailgating event for current students at Keeneland to meet and connect with fellow MHA alumni and showcase a truly beautiful setting in the heart of the Bluegrass!
