Drew Ritzel is just one of hundreds of UK students who have participated in an Alternative Spring Break trip — either a weekend excursion or a weeklong adventure — to volunteer.

Ritzel, a junior biology major from Dayton, Ohio, went on his first ASB trip as a freshman and since that experience, he’s been hooked.

Coffee Chat with Mayor Jim Gray

 

When you live in A&S Wired, you are connected to community.

And that certainly was the case when Lexington Mayor Jim Gray recently stopped by one of the monthly coffee chats to discuss the city that the students now call home, and their interaction within that community.

The mayor discussed the important relationship between UK and Lexington, especially with campus’ close proximity to downtown. He talked about the future of the Rupp Arena district, as well as how Lexington has been recognized as a top city for raising families.

The students were fully engaged as they inquired about the progress of the CentrePointe block in the middle of downtown, as well as other major plans the mayor wants to concentrate on for the future of Lexington.

Located in Keeneland Hall on UK’s north campus, A&S Wired allows first-year students to realize connectivity on all levels – from virtual to face-to-face, and from local to global. For more info visit wired.as.uky.edu

Cultivating Community: Homegrown Kentucky at Owsley County High School

Owsley County is the first site for Homegrown Kentucky, a farm-to-school project developed by University of Kentucky students Ben Smith, Adam Meredith, Luke McAnally, Patrick Johnson and Ben Norton. Ideally, this model will be applied to other schools across Kentucky, making Kentucky schools more self-sufficient while offering students and community members an opportunity to learn and practice agricultural skills. This podcast chronicles a visit to Owsley County High School for a board meeting and tour of the farm, which consists of a few acres adjacent to the school. Agricultural Science teacher Dustin Estridge and some of his students share their experiences with the project.
