The Fun Doesn't Stop

Even after K Week is over, there are great opportunities to meet new people, get involved, and connect with campus resources! Learn more about these events in August.


Super Start

Monday, August 17, and Tuesday, August 18, 7:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Need help finding your way around campus? Stop by the Super Start tents for directions and information from UK staff! Tents will be located on Rose Street near the Chem/Phys Building, outside White Hall Classroom Building, and on the Avenue of Champions outside the Gatton Student Center.

First Day of School Photos

Monday, August 17, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., outside W.T. Young Library near the Rose Street parking garage

First day of school photos are a beloved family tradition! On the first day of classes each fall semester, the UK Parent and Family Association takes photos of students to commemorate their first day. Photos are posted to the UK Parents Facebook page later in the week for families to view and save. 

Social distancing in line will be enforced, and UK staff are planning for this to be a contactless experience. Therefore, staff will not be able to take pictures with students' cell phones, students will need to take individual photos, and white board messages will not be available as in years past. To add some fun this year, we are excited about a new balloon display for photos! Students will be asked to check in with their BBNvolved event pass

In the case of rain, first day of school photos will be moved to Tuesday, August 18, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
