    To have fun at UK, join clubs and organizations. This will allow you to meet people with whom you have common interests and make life-long friends.

    I am in a sorority so my sisters and I like to hang out, go to sporting events (I like hockey), and go out for food.

    There are 200+ clubs and organizations to get involved in. There are intramural sports that everyone can get into. The church around campus does things to involve religion and throw dance parties! It is literally so hard to NOT do anything on campus. Anyone can do it.

    Basketball games! There are also plenty of activities. They even have a club for squirrel watching. Wander around campus and find the place that you like most. I am big on ending sexual violence so I am looking into The Green Dot association. The movie theater is right outside of campus. Various restaurants, coffee shops, and yes, bars are located right outside, or inside campus. The Johnson Center is the huge workout center that a lot of folks use to blow of stress, and taking strolls in the Arboretum is something that most students enjoy. Trust me, every student will find something.

    There's quite a bit to do here. In spring, there's Keeneland, which is a horse race track. We have a movie tavern on Richmond Road. Typical bars and clubs downtown. Bowling, new trampoline park. If you just want to stay on campus, there's a rock wall in the Johnson Center, and the Student Activities Board always has something going on. There's also Comedy Caravan on Wednesdays and free Late Night Film Series showings on Thursdays and Fridays, generally. There are other events that go on sporadically, and there are always posters up everywhere. There's no excuse to get bored here.

    Um really nothing. Unless you get wrapped up into the sorority life and want to attend frat parties every weekend, or unless you are 21 there really isnt much to do. I would say going to Keeneland would pretty much be it.

    The University of Kentucky's Student Activity Board ensures that the students here have something fun to do at any given moment, whether it be a free movie night at the Student Center or a main stage concert on the weekends for a VERY good price. K Week is a campus wide week-long event and open to all students. There are free giveaways and endless opportunities to meet new people all week long. Students here have opportunities to branch out and have great experiences, no matter where they are on campus. Also, the University of Kentucky is located in the heart of Lexington, KY so there are millions of things to take part in throughout the city. With Rupp Arena, home of our Wildcats, less than a mile from campus, cheering on the Big Blue Nation is very easy and highly recommended. The student ticket prices for our men's basketball team are unbeatable and the games are something to remember. It's impossible to be bored here.
