W.T. Young Library to host Student Involvement Fair



As the beginning of the fall semester kicks into gear, many students are still searching for free food, t-shirts and ways to get involved.

William T. Young Library is known for its 24-hour access, “all-nighters” and its five floors filled with thousands of books — but Young Library is also a place where you can always meet new people.

UK has hundreds of student organizations for both new and returning students interested in getting involved on campus.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, the Student Involvement Fair will take place at the walkway from Rose Street to Young Library. Students who attend the fair will get an opportunity to visit student organization tables.

These include religious groups, athletic clubs and  educational clubs.

“New students should attend the fair because it is a great opportunity to meet different students from many students organizations at once,” said Todd Cox, assistant director of student organizations in the Office of Student Involvement.

An average of 6,000 students have attended the Student Involvement Fair over the past two years, solidifying it as a K Week mainstay.

“It has been such a successful event, so we’ve pretty much kept it the same, besides changing the ice cream from Dippin’ Dots to Edy’s,” Cox said.
