The University of Kentucky campus was busy with new students Friday as more than 2,200 moved into residence halls.
Students also moved in on Wednesday, and around 800 more are expected this weekend, totalling 5,000 students for the week.
The UK Marching Band along with President Eli Capilouto and his wife, Dr. Mary Lynne Capilouto, greeted families and students on Friday, helping them get settled into their new homes.
Friday’s move-in marked the beginning of K Week, which is the university’s fall welcome week for new and transferring students. Events through Aug. 31 include a new-student induction ceremony Saturday afternoon and Big Blue U on Saturday evening, during which students gather in Commonwealth Stadium to learn UK fight songs and take a class picture.
Never miss a local story.
Classes for all UK students begin Wednesday.
