On Feb. 22, 1865, John Bryan Bowman founded the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky University which is now known as the University of Kentucky. To celebrate this historic anniversary, the UK Alumni Association will host the inaugural Founders Day Festival on Feb. 22 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. ET on the second floor of the Gatton Student Center, 160 Avenue of Champions.
The campus community is invited to attend and celebrate UK’s 157th birthday. The event will commemorate the university’s past, present and future with a variety of activities, games, giveaways and music, including a chance to win the limited-edition Founders Day T-Shirt.
