Freshmen Converge On UK Campus

Friday was an important day for incoming freshman at the University of Kentucky. Thousands of students showed up to move into the dorms.

This year's freshman class has more than 4000 students. 90 percent of them live on campus.

The rest of the student population will be moving back on to campus within the next few days. As a result, Huguelet Drive will become a one way street, heading west, through Sunday.

President Lee Todd spent some time on Friday morning greeting students and parents outside the Kirwin and Blanding dorms.

Classes at UK are back in session starting on Monday.

    Does this make UK a "Top 20" school now? Is "The Todd" personally thanking them for his bonus (read - tuition increase)?

    This is a complete waste of University money and further codelling of young adults. You have over 1,500 "helpers" (UK employees) packing these young adults belongings from thier car or moving trailer to the room they will occupy. I say let them move themselves in and too start acting like an adult. We baby young adults way to much in the day and age. This is a prime example. Face the real world kiddies and quit waiting on Mommy & Daddy to provide EVERYTHING you think you are entitled to.
