Due to new national guidance on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to limit group sizes to 10 or less, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Choose Blue.
If you are registered for Choose Blue, you will receive additional email communication from us on Wednesday, March 18.



April 14, 2020 at the University of Kentucky

We’ve all had those same questions floating in our head when we were narrowing down the right place for us.

We weighed the pros and cons, just like you. We had to choose – choose the right community, the place to be challenged and grow, the place to make a difference. And once we did, the only choice was blue – the University of Kentucky.

Join us and experience what it’s like to be a Kentucky Wildcat. Check out our classroom spaces, hang out in the residence hall, explore campus and connect with current students, faculty and staff.

This event is dedicated specifically to high school seniors.


Register for Choose Blue.




Our open house events give first-time students the opportunity to explore their academic interests and interact one-on-one with current students, faculty and staff from across the University of Kentucky. Learn more about what it means to be a “Wildcat”; explore student and academic life; and tour our beautiful campus in the heart of Lexington. Our Big Blue Open House events are geared toward high school juniors, seniors and transfer students wanting an early look at UK in their college decision-making process.

We've completed our 2019-2020 Big Blue Open House series. Check back here at a later date for summer and fall options.
