K2 Spring Semester Welcome: January 7, 2022

In light of the announcement that UK will be closed on Friday, January 7, K2 will not take place.

While the safety of our students is our top priority, we are sorry that the weather has impacted our ability to spend time with our newest Wildcats and further orient them to UK. We are working on ways to connect new spring semester undergraduates with the valuable information and fun giveaways that they would have received at K2. Please email KWeek@lsv.uky.edu to request more details. 

President Capilouto recorded a special message of welcome for K2 participants. 


Join us for K2, UK's spring semester welcome for new students, which will be held Friday afternoon, January 7, 2022, in the Gatton Student Center's Worsham Cinema! 
You're encouraged to participate in a half-day program designed to help you:
