dormitories, and in the various fraternities and sororities. The Cosmopolitan

call letters WBKY. Students taking courses in Radio Arts, and others of demon-
strated talents are permitted to gain actual broadcasting experience by filling
positions on this station. From the WBKY studios, daily programs are also
broadcast to WHAS, Louisville, the Lexington commercial stations, and other
outlets.
Religious Life
an-
,,0 The University, because it is distinctly interested in the religious life of
students, encourages them to participate regularly in the worship of the church
of their choice and to affiliate themselves with such student religious groups as
may be provided. On the campus the Young Men's Christian Association and
the Young Women’s Christian Association are active student-led organizations,
each with a full-time director. The Y.M.C.A. has a half-time assistant working
with freshmen in the dormitories. Frequently great spiritual leaders are brought
to the University to speak.
Through the existence of student groups representing most major branches
of jewish and Christian Faiths, spiritual growth may be nourished. The activi-
ties of these groups are coordinated through the Interfaith Council. Most student
religious groups furnish trained personnel who are sympathetic counselors and
who are actively interested in the student’s lives.
