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.
