25 Questions I Have For The University Of Kentucky During COVID-19

For University of Kentucky students, we're beginning week two of online classes since COVID-19 has taken over. I miss my friends, I miss going to class, I even miss my 20 minutes trek going to campus. Going to White Hall right now seems like a luxury - I never thought I'd say that. I didn't realize that I was taking in-person classes so for granted. I would give anything to actually go to class today. Even in the rain.

I know I can't be the only one who has multiple questions regarding time, money, graduation, all the things.

1. When will I graduate?

2. Are there possible formats being discussed for graduation?

3. Has the university thought of a plan to reimburse students for not just classes but also dining?

4. Will any money be refunded?

5. If not, will there be a refund on classes that were already online since costs were raised this year? 

6. Are you regretting raising costs of online classes? 

7. Do you think we will resume classes in August? 

8. How are our professors? We miss them. 

9. Is UK doing anything to support the students who needed meal support? 

10. If so, then what is the plan? 

11. Will there still be online summer course? 

12. Since shutting campus down, are the classroom buildings being sanitized and deep cleaned?

13. Will University Health Services provide any services to students before the semester is over?

14. Is construction still going on?

15. For the incoming freshman, will there be a virtual orientation? 

16. How do you think the incoming freshman will adjust to campus without an orientation?

17. Will there be more sanitary precautions when campus is back up and running?

18. Has there been any new criteria that teachers have been given when instructing online?

19. Does UK think that students will succeed or fail with online courses during this time?

20. Has UK planned any helpful insights on how to succeed in an online course?

21. Has UK given the teachers information on how to help students on succeeding online classes?

22. If classes don't resume in the fall, will Zoom meetings be mandatory?

23. Will exams be monitored more strictly? If so, how?  

24. Will campus visits go on as normal after this is over? 

25. Will there be different sanitary precautions for sports and events?

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
