 > On UK Campus


When touring UK, we walked all over campus and the area I remember most was the walkway by the Kirwan towers and the 90. Our tour guide began to explain they planted 100 Willow Oaks in that area when the Kirwan dorms were finished being built in 1968. These trees mark the urbanization and how modern UK's campus has become over the years. I pass these big Willow trees everyday walking from Ag North and I felt that they should be recognized for their time as our campus continues to grow.
