"‘see blue.’ really resonates with me because it’s true that blue is more than just a color at UK; it represents the Big Blue Nation – a family – that constantly pushes you toward achieving your dreams."

“Kentucky felt like home to me as soon as I stepped on campus. I belong here. The statement ‘see blue.’ really resonates with me because it’s true that blue is more than just a color at UK. It represents the Big Blue Nation – a family – that constantly pushes you toward achieving your dreams.

As a public health major, one of the things I love most about UK is that it provides many opportunities to get involved with your field, even a broad field like mine. I attended a public health career fair on campus and was able to talk to people who told me about undergraduate research opportunities and internships with state health departments. It’s very comforting to meet people who are on the same path as you and that seem to genuinely care about your future. I’m grateful to have opportunities to build skills as an undergrad that I will need as a professional.”
