“The UK Student Activities Board works really hard to make sure we have a lot of educational and fun events for our students,” Kristen Smith, SAB director of public relations, said. “I really encourage students to take advantage of these events. It is a chance for students to add so much to their college experience. It is our goal that every student, after walking away from our events, will have learned something and gained a new experience. These are great chances to learn outside of the classroom.”
