Discovering My Place

Submitted by bwo236 on Mon, 10/15/2018 - 01:20 am

The University of Kentucky is bigger than I understood before I sat wedged in with thousands of my fellow newly inducted freshman (or super junior in my case) and recognized this huge crowd was maybe a quarter of the undergraduate class on campus.  I added the graduate and professional populations and that was when I began to consider UK its own "Learning Town" in the middle of Lexington.

At this point, halfway through what I imagine will be four undergraduate semesters on campus, there is a lot of work but I am engaged with the material and enthusiastic to progress.  I intend to add some of the works I am creating for my classes here.  I intend to build a student portfolio with this bog.  I have some completed work I intend to post here, but I want to see what grade I get before I do.  I suppose I might try to document my overall UK experience in posts like this as well.  Or this might be the only post like this.  Time will tell.

Despite being new I am the oldest person in most every classroom I enter and service providers on campus are often confused when I show up with my student ID.  I am enjoying my time at UK.  My fellow students have been great. In classes and just crossing campus, I am constantly blown away by the intelligence and engagement of UK students.  I am honored to have found a place on campus.
