A week from today, University of Kentucky alumni, friends and family will descend on UK’s campus for a weekend of fun, education and reminiscing during our annual Alumni Weekend. We here at the UK Alumni Association are excited to welcome our alums back to campus! Throughout the year, we’ve been working hard to guarantee that this will be an unforgettable weekend for all who attend.
The fun will kick off on Thursday, April 19, during the Pure Blue Networking event at the Barrel House Distillery in historic downtown Lexington. This unique distillery is owned by UK alumni Jeff Wiseman and Dr. Peter Wright. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear them talk about the challenges and rewards of starting a business in today’s economy.
On Friday, April 20, alumni, friends and the campus community will gather to unveil the newest tradition at UK, Wildcat Alumni Plaza. The focal point of the plaza is a beautiful 7 foot tall, 9 foot wide wildcat sculpture that will invoke UK pride in all who attend. This will be an event to remember.
The weekend is packed with lots of other events that you won’t want to miss. To see all of the other events, and to register, visit www.ukalumni.net/alumniweekend. Be sure to register by April 16.
We hope to see you there!
