UKY email addresses

How long do we get to keep the @uky.edu email addresses?

I had the same question.  I called the UKIT dept and they said that, in theory, you don’t get to keep the email after graduation for any length of time and you should have prepared for that prior to graduation.  In practice however, we will probably be able to access our email for a couple months before they’re deleted.  This was news to me so I figured I would share, especially since I get to keep my undergraduate email address indefinitely, and since it appears UKIT is about to outsource their email servers to Microsoft and Google, and since it would make since for alumni outreach for a university to let alums keep their email addresses… etc.

Hope everyone is doing well.  Happy 2011


This message is from Anne Jones.  The Firsties want to host an end of year potluck in our honor.  From what I understand, the Firsties will bring the food.  2nd years just need to bring their graduated selves.  It is an Anne’s house which is about 12 miles down Harrodsburg Rd.

The Big Game

That’s right, this weekend OSU faces UM. This is a huge rivalry and I plan on watching the Buckeyes crush the Wolverines this Sat at noon! Depending on interest, this may be held at my place or we may just meet at Pazzo’s or something. Let me know if you’re interested!

CLass gift

Some of us 2nd years talked about this already and agree.  Traditionally 1st years give 2nd years a gift and 2nd years gift the Patterson School for graduation. So far, the consensus has been to completely abandon this tradition.


Is there any dissent on the issue?

If so, we need to officially let the firsties know not to bother.

Development Dinner!

Whether you are focusing on development or just interested in it, you are welcome to attend an informal gathering I’m hosting at my place on Monday, Nov. 15. See details below:

What: Development Gathering

When: Monday, Nov. 15, 7:45 p.m. – ? (this time seemed to work best for those with night classes.) No problem if you can’t be there right then, obviously. I WILL HAVE FOOD AND DRINKS! (this seems key — I know everyone is running from class/work/etc., so I’m happy to provide spaghetti, garlic bread, dessert and wine.) If you have anything in particular you want to eat or drink aside from those things, feel free to bring it, though there is certainly no need.

Where: Danielle’s House: 2717 Jacquelyn Ln, Lexington, KY 40511 (in Masterson Station neighborhood off Leestown Rd. About 10-15 mins from campus. Our house is right after you pass Silver Creek Way (this is key, as all the houses in this neighborhood look the same to me and are hard to see addresses.)

Why: To chat with classmates with similar interests (on that note, you may want to bring along a notepad or something if people bring up any potential workplaces you’d like to look into, internships, fellowships, etc. Conversely, if you have any info you’d like to pass along to people, don’t forget it!)

Please RSVP to me by Sunday evening (danielle@palmerwords.com) so I can know roughly how many people will be coming.

Thanks! Hope to see some of you then!



Oh the good life.

It’s the last home football game of the year, and the last chance to tailgate this season. Let’s do it right.


Also, Vanderbilt sucks.

Remember, the game is at noon, so we’re starting early. This is a morning tailgate, so we’ll do breakfast foods and drinks such as screwdrivers, mimosas, and, of course, beer.

What: Morning tailgate (last chance to tailgate!)

When: Saturday, 7 a.m. to gametime and post-game time

Where: Commonwealth Village, 1435 Nicholasville Road (Google maps view here)

What to bring:  Eggs, sausages, biscuits, etc. — other breakfast food items, Folding/camping chairs

Really don’t forget to bring: Beer, makings for screwdrivers and mimosas and bloody marys, etc.

We’ll have a football and volleyball, but does anyone have a cornhole setup?

So I do not know about you all, but with Comps and all I will be too overloaded to make the trip home for Thanksgiving (I imagine my family will not want to deal with the stressed out mess that will be me anyway).  So I will be here in Lexington and I plan to spend the day at the Catholic Action Center (a sort of homeless community center) serving Thanksgiving dinner.  They are in need of a few volunteers because most of their student volunteer base goes home for the holiday.

If you want to join me, please let me know  via email by this Friday so that I can give my contact a solid number to rely on.
THanks all!
