The Presidential debates are over now but a couple of weeks ago University of Kentucky student Patrick O’Dowd had the chance to attend 2012’s one and only Vice Presidential debate. Held at Kentucky’s own Centre College in Danville, he was able to experience what many only get to see on television every four years.
The Center for English as a Second Language organized a discussion and viewing of the 2012 Vice Presidential debate, which gave students an opportunity to practice conversation and express their political opinions. In this podcast, students share some political insight, comparisons to politics in their home countries, and reactions to the debate. View the photos from this event here.
This podcast was produced by Cheyenne Hohman.
Rachel Hensley didn’t always know she wanted to study political science, but she found that the University of Kentucky’s College of Arts and Sciences had much to offer her both as a student finding her way, and as a Spanish language major. The broad variety of classes offered at UK and through the A&S college allowed Hensley the breathing room to work her way toward where she wanted to be.
Jin-Young Kim is a student at the University of Kentucky's College of Dentistry but her path there was paved as an Arts and Sciences undergraduate majoring in biology. Kim's experiences visiting the dentist as a child instilled in her the desire to give other people the confidence to let their pearly whites shine. Similarly, the goal of UK and the College of Arts and Sciences is to instill in its students the confidence they need to let their best selves show.
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.
For undergraduates on the path to becoming doctors, UK’s B.S./M.D. program accelerates the student’s educational path allowing them to earn a medical degree in only seven years. One dimension of this track, is a degree in biology from the College of Arts and Sciences. By combining a student's undergraduate and graduate degree into one program, the University of Kentucky is better able to serve those students who already have their collegiate goals mapped out.
We invite all Arts and Sciences faculty and staff (family and friends) to join us at 6:30am at Barker Hall for this fun event. Coffee, hot chocolate, and healthy breakfast options await you at the finish line. Please see attachment for details.
Please RSVP to email@example.com by Monday, October 15 if you plan to participate and let me know if you will be a runner or a walker
For many University of Kentucky students, the right undergraduate degree is an important stepping stone towards a life-long goal of pursuing medicine, dentistry, or law. The College of Arts and Sciences works hard to develop programs and majors that help cater to the pre-professional goals of its many students.
