Looks like this LSU girl will become a UK mama in a few years. It's a beautiful campus and my daughter is already excited to become a Wildcat.

It is fun to walk around the campus just to get a feel for college life here and to experience some great opportunities for students. The Art and Design building and the Singletary Center offer some interesting art experiences.

The UK campus is definitely worth a visit when you're in lexington. The library is especially beautiful and definitely surprisingly large. The library is also flanked by sorority row with its brick homes that definitely throw in some southern flair.

This University is right in the center of downtown and there is a lot of activity usually with student groups or basketball games. Good programs and helpful staff abound.
