Did you see the recent message from Stephen Barnett in Admissions? In order to help our incoming first-year students in their transition from high school to UK this summer, we’re no longer using the term Summer Advising Conferences. Instead the summer freshman two-day event will be called the “see blue. U” University Orientation.see blue. U logo for University Orientation

See for example the new flyer that will be included in the students’ confirmation packets:

Another change to the summer advising conferences is the addition of two opportunities for small-group discussions – once in the morning of Day 1 and once in the afternoon of Day 1.  As Stephen put it: “We believe this opportunity will give new students a time to meet in a smaller setting so they can begin to interact with other new students, learn from currently enrolled students about policies and procedures on campus as well as how to get involved and be successful.”

Take a look at the list of the department and college resources for first-year students and their parents as they enter the campus as members of the UK community: http://www.uky.edu/registrar/seeblueu/resources. Is your unit’s information for orientation purposes listed there?
