B.S. Psychology - University of Evansville

Daphne Arnold started her journey to the College of Arts and Sciences at 6 years old when she was so sad that school was over, that she cried on the last day when all the other children were cheering that the school year was over!

After graduating from the University of Evansville with a psychology degree, Daphne traveled for her national sorority.  She visited chapters in 26 states, helping them problem solve and focused on recruitment and daily operations.  After her contract was up with her first position, she worked for a community based organization that partnered with the Department of Child Services and Juvenile Probation in Indiana.  

Daphne returned for her graduate education in 2011 and that is what brought her to Kentucky.  Working with the Student Activities Board at the University of Louisville helped her build a foundation of student support and mentoring.  After some substitute teaching in the Louisville area (which none of us would like to remember), Daphne accepted a position at the University of Kentucky in Residence Life. Overseeing up to 700+ students, Daphne learned to love the UK Wildcats and has gleaned information about what campus has to offer.  Daphne’s favorite spots on campus include the School of Pharmacy’s lobby, the new Gatton Student Center, and any of the campus eateries.

Daphne serves as a Sentor on UK's Staff Senate.  She also is excited to continue to work with Exploratory students by being the College's Exploratory Advisor.  If there are ways she can help you explore majors here at UK, please do not hesitate to reach out to her.  Daphne teaches A&S 150, a course designed to help students hone personal and academic decision making skills.

A Hoosier native, Daphne has lived and worked in Kentucky for the past 8 years.  On the weekends you'll find her hanging out with her partner at community events, playing with her toddler whom she adopted in 2018, taking frequent naps, and cheering on her favorite sports teams.
