LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 16, 2015) — In the shadows of brand new residence halls on the University of Kentucky's north campus is a dining facility that has become a tradition for students. 

But students’ affection for Blazer Café isn’t just about the food.  For example, Tristan Koerner, a sophomore from Louisville, Kentucky, says he eats at Blazer just about every day of the week.

Watch the “Where I ‘see blue.’” video feature above to discover how the community he formed at Blazer helped him make a successful transition to college life. 

The "Where I 'see blue." video feature is part of a special series produced by UKNow focusing on locations across campus that are meaningful for UK students, administrators, faculty, staff and alumni.  

The idea is to show how the physical spaces on campus help foster discovery, community, research, knowledge and success for the UK family.  As the university celebrates its 150th anniversary, we want to show readers what our campus is like today by showcasing locations that have stood for decades along with some of our newest spots.  


Since the “Where I ‘see blue.’” video series is a monthly feature on UKNow, we invite you to submit future ideas.  If there’s an obscure spot on campus you don’t think many people know about or an area that’s on everyone’s radar but you have a special connection to it, email us.  Who knows?  We might just choose your suggestion for our next feature!
