Room assignments pair students from differing backgrounds, and dedicated programming offers opportunities to explore others’ cultures and develop international friendships. Through cultural and recreational programming as well as through connected coursework, students will have regular interactions with faculty, upper class peer mentors, and staff dedicated to supporting their academic success at the University of Kentucky.

STEMCats – Careers in Science & Research

STEMCats - STEMCats is a freshman academic, research, and professional-development residential program sponsored by HHMI (Howard Hughes Medical Institute) intended for first-year students who have applied for or are interested in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) major. Students arrive a week before the fall semester begins and attend programs in math, biology, chemistry, and other first year courses. This early start helps build confidence in a firstyear student’s academic preparation as they acclimate to the rigors of a STEM major. STEMCats experience an array of faculty-led and student-led activities, including special career seminars and course-based research projects. STEMCats has graduate and professional student mentors who provide support services, coordinate activities and tutor throughout the year. Students in the STEMCats program live in the Woodland Glen IV residential hall.
