Fall 2020 Virtual Family Programming

We know that this fall will not look like any fall we have ever seen at UK. However, the Parent and Family Association is still committed to providing opportunities for our UK parents and families to connect with one another and with the greater UK community. We will be offering a series of virtual programs and events throughout the fall designed to help ease the transition to campus for students and families and to provide fun, interactive ways to experience UK traditions and community. A full schedule of events will be available this fall. Here are a few events to get the fun started:


Cat Family Cookbook


Submit your family's signature dish to the UK Parent and Family Association's Cat Family Cookbook! Selected recipes will be featured in the cookbook, in the dining halls, and at various programs throughout the year! Cat Family Cookbooks will be available for purchase in the spring semester. Reserve your cookbook now!
