UK Collegians Day Invites Top Scholars to UK

Published: Nov 7, 2016

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 7, 2016)  Top high school seniors from across the Commonwealth and around the country can now call themselves "Kentucky Collegians."

 

Today, one of the University of Kentucky's premiere recruitment events, UK Collegians Day, will honor top prospective students who have applied and earned at least a 31+ on the ACT and/or equivalent SAT. A record number of just over 280 outstanding student scholars representing 17 states along with an additional 450+ guests will be in attendance. 

 

Not only are these scholars being recognized, they are given the opportunity to explore and experience all that UK has to offer. Students begin their day with tours of campus followed by sessions with each academic college. A reception will take place at the Lexington Center/Bluegrass Ballroom along with dinner and a formal recognition ceremony later in the evening.

 

“Collegians Day is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the incredible UK faculty, resources and opportunities to outstanding prospective students and their families," said Associate Provost for Enrollment Management Don Witt. "Students really appreciate the interaction with the UK faculty from across all of the colleges and disciplines.”

 

UK faculty speakers at the recognition include Lewis Honors College Interim Dean Phil Harling, University Senate Chair Katherine McCormick and top current students Emily Appel, Joshua Musalia and Dealla Samadi. Guests will be entertained with several groups from the College of Fine Arts including Paws-n-Listen and acoUstiKats. In addition, nearly 100 UK faculty and staff will be hosting individual tables providing the opportunity for students and family members to learn more about the many academic and extracurricular opportunities at UK.
