Nicole Solakiewicz's Top Ten Things I'll Miss About Kentucky

Top 10 Things I’ll Miss About Kentucky:


1.     The University of Kentucky
More than anything else I’ll miss being an undergraduate student at UK. As far as colleges go, I’d say it’s one of the best.

2.     All of the people I’ve met
I’ve met some of the best people in Kentucky (both in and out of Lexington), who make it hard to say goodbye. Kentuckians have a way of making you feel at home.

Ten Facts about Senior Editor, Sarah Abbott!

Meet Sarah!

1. I'm bad at putting things together (think IKEA and postal boxes) but good at organizing things (ALL the to-do lists and spreadsheets).

2. On my "favorites" playlist: Sara Bareilles, Adele, Taylor Swift, Ingrid Michaelson. Partially because they're fun to sing along with in the car, and I apparently can't go anywhere without singing the whole way. (I'm sometimes hoarse at the end of road trips.)
