LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 23, 2016) — There are so many families who make the University of Kentucky a special place to live, work, learn, discover, heal and serve together.  

For more than two years, UKNow has tried to showcase the community atmosphere that is part of the UK campus through the Big Blue Family series. 

The series has showcased twins who succeed on the field, court and in the classroom, large families full of UK alumni, siblings who practice medicine, couples who research together, deans married to each other and even tumbling brothers.

This series will retire as UKNow gears up for another academic year with more opportunities to tell new and different stories about the university and its community. 

Watch the playlist above for a look back at all of the Big Blue Family videos produced over the past two years. 

UKNow will continue to strive to tell compelling stories about the members of our campus community. If you know of someone who you think should be featured or have an idea for new stories or even a new series about the University of Kentucky, please email us.  Who knows? We might just choose your suggestion for our next feature or series on UKNow!

UK is the University for Kentucky. At UK, we are educating more students, treating more patients with complex illnesses and conducting more research and service than at any time in our 150-year history.
