            Great place to explore your passion.

            The University of Kentucky gave me the opportunity to find what I really wanted to pursue in my career. The Integrated Strategic Communications program at UK combines public relations and marketing and showed me a world that I didn't know existed, with professors who were actively engaged in my academics and cared greatly about my success. Beyond their communications school, they have a fantastic engineering program, performing arts program, sciences programs and active campus life. Lexington is beautiful and full of things to do, not to mention the winningest basketball team in history to cheer for. Live on campus the first year, meet great friends, and dive in to all this college has to offer!

            A Rewarding School To Attend - Rich In Tradition

            I came from the Pittsburgh, PA area some time ago, but I remember the first time that I walked onto the campus. I was instantly at home and each of the four years that I was there was a learning experience. Three of my four years, I was a corridor adviser. This opportunity provided me with tons of leadership experience, which I translated to the business world. My very first job after college, had me supervising 35 individuals who were much older than I was at the time. The corridor adviser position gave me the ability to handle that position, which was with one of the major corporations in Louisville at the time. If you are thinking about attending UK, I would highly recommend it.
