Big Blue U and Other Things
This year K Week replaced Welcome Week as freshmen and new students came to campus to start their colle-
giate odyssey. Highlight ofthe week was Big Blue U, a high energy, pep rally style event that began with a walk
across campus to Commonwealth Stadium and included the Pep Band and Cheerleaders, Hreworks and the
new Traditions-T shirt was handed out to every student there. Your UK Alumni Association working with Stu-
dent Affairs sponsored a T-shirt design contest. Students voted on the winning design that was revealed at Big
Blue U We’re already anticipating what next year’s winning Traditions T-shirt will look like. Students are en-
couraged to wear “the” T-shirt throughout the year on game day when the alumni prize patrol will be out on
campus.
K Week also marked the return of the freshman K Book which explains all things UK, its history, traditions,
where Kentucky blue comes from, the words to UOM, On U {K ” and so much more. You, too, can get your
2007 T-shirt from the UK Alumni Association online store, kentuckygear.com while supplies last.
The association also had big numbers at the Welcome Back picnic and Legacy reception attended by parents
who can’t help compare their Hrst days at UK as their children embark on their own UK experience. ]udging by
the response of students, K Week was a big hit.
This summer the UK Alumni Association found out a lot about you and a lot about us through a research
project that included focus groups in six cities around the country and an online survey about alumni percep-
tions and programs. It has given us a lot of information to use to improve what we do to engage you with each
other and with the university through the UK Alumni Association. As a direct result of the research, one thing
you will see is more family oriented programming. The Hrst annual UK Alumni Day at Kings Island was at-
tended by over I,700 alumni, faculty, staff and students. If you are looking for an excuse to plan a trip to a
theme park, this is the day to do it.
We also are taking our important alumni career services on the road. Special career workshops are being
planned for Young Alumni, for women and for mid-career changers. Speed networking will be a part of those
events. Supported by the ]ane I. Morris Endowment, this past Hscal year the association / career center counselor
was able to assist 658 alumni by telephone, e-mail or in-person. Check out Career Corner on page 45 in this

See Blue Tour Coming Soon
  During the summer of 2005, we boarded a bus and took Kentucky’s flagship univer-
 -7}-,,, sity on a 22-city, 1,600 mile trek across the Commonwealth. The Dream Tour provided
  US {IH opportunity [O IC·CHg€1gC   people RCIOSS [IIC state, opening up COHIHIUHICRIIOH
j _; $5*  lines and Hnding out how we could better serve the people of Kentucky.
 , 7 -l_ I `I j One ofthe highlights ofthe tour was having the opportunity to spend time with
f ri     alumni and prospective students across the state. I loved having the opportunity to share
i ng. stories and listen to experiences ofthe people that helped make UK the place it is today.
~   j This fall, we are again embarking on a statewide expedition. Called the See Blue Tour,
the trek will allow us to tell the university’s story of excellence in education, research,
` and service.
_ . The tour also will allow the university to unveil its new See Blue marketing campaign.
in The campaign will show how UK alumni are transforming the communities in which
A I they live. We will show how our faculty and staff are reaching out across Kentucky to
  ‘ jj W positively impact education, health care, and the economy. And we will encourage Ken-
Y ii " All tucky’s young people to See Blue in their future, as we collectively realize that educating
the next generation of leaders is the key to future success in the Commonwealth.
I like to tell students that blue is more than just another color to me and other UK alumni. It is a state of
mind — a sense of pride, purpose, and excellence in all that we do.
I hope you will be able to join us at one of our stops along the See Blue Tour to help us illustrate that pride. I
feel that our alumni across Kentucky, the nation, and the world tell our story the best by showing how a Univer-
sity of Kentucky education is changing the world in which we live.
I look forward to seeing you this fall.
Sincerely,
President Lee T. Todd, ]r. See Blue Tour
