LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 29, 2021) – The University of Kentucky is quickly approaching the start of the fall 2021 semester, and plans are in place for a full capacity restart.
Concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic aside, newly arriving students, along with their families, are always full of questions as they navigate their way onto campus. How will I meet and make new friends? What will I eat? Where will I study? These are only a few of the concerns students have as they transition to college life.
Joining Behind the Blue this week are two guests who work year-round to answer those questions and more.
Sarah Ballard is the Executive Director of the First-Year Experience and Early Outreach programs here at UK. Nicki Jenkins is the Senior Program Specialist for the Parent and Family Association. We talk with them about what they do to help relieve concerns, provide balance, and work to provide students and their families with the best foundation possible on their way to graduation.
