Friends and Colleagues,
Greetings from the Office of New Student and Parent Programs! We hope that you’re having a great semester so far. Believe it or not, we are already planning for K Week in August! We know that without our campus partners K Week would not be such a success. The same is true for K Week’s student leaders, our K Crew.
K Crew leaders play an integral part in welcoming our new students to campus each fall. Every spring up to 500 students are selected to serve as K Crew leaders for UK’s new students. Each K Crew member leads and mentors a K Team of approximately 10 new students during K Week and throughout the school year. During K Week, K Crew leaders facilitate five different meetings as well as take their K Teams to various programs and events. During the year, K Crew leaders work with their K Teams to make sure their transition to UK is a successful one. This is a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our new students and have fun doing so!
Please help us recruit new K Crew leaders. Applications are due this Friday, February 15th – download the .pdf file here. Will you please take a few minutes to think about some outstanding students with whom you have worked or advised and encourage them to apply for K Crew? We would certainly appreciate it! You can let students know they can visit our website to learn more about the application: www.uky.edu/StudentAffairs/NewStudentPrograms/leadership.html. I have attached the application for you in this e-mail if you’d like to send it directly to students.
Again, we can’t thank you all enough for your continued support and partnerships with K Week. We look forward to another great K Week working with you!
All the best,
