Eating Free During K Week: "Who Does That?"

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 17, 2012) — As freshmen move into the University of Kentucky, one of the first things greeting them will be tables of free food near their residence halls. 


It’s a welcome many students take full advantage of throughout K Week.  But is it possible to actually go the entire week without paying for food during this special Big Blue welcome? 


Watch the feature above to get some tips from a real free food expert, UK Senior Annie Tiu and discover why the incentive helps students become involved in campus life from the very start of their college careers.


This is the first in a new series produced by UK Now called "Who Does That?"  We'd like to show you the unique students, faculty and staff who make UK tick.

During K Week, we'll introduce you to a new student or staff member each day to answer the question, "Who does that?" as it relates to welcoming back our students for a brand new academic year.


We want to showcase how UK students, faculty and staff work each and every day to keep The Kentucky Promise alive and well. 


UKNow plans to make the "Who Does That?" series a monthly feature, so if you've ever wondered "Who does that?" about something at UK, please email us.  Who knows?  We might just use your question for our next feature!

Coordinated by the Office of New Student & Parent Programs in the Division of Student Affairs, K Week is UK's fall welcome week for freshmen and transfer students. For more information about K Week, visit the Facebook page at, follow K Week on Twitter at and check out the YouTube channel at
