Looks like this LSU girl will become a UK mama in a few years. It's a beautiful campus and my daughter is already excited to become a Wildcat.

It is fun to walk around the campus just to get a feel for college life here and to experience some great opportunities for students. The Art and Design building and the Singletary Center offer some interesting art experiences.

visit the Arboretum and check out the library too. Since you are coming in from out of town it sounds like I would also check out some of the local eats.
