Why 2+2 Programs? * Students receive the advantages of studying abroad without any loss of time or the risk of credits not being counted. * 2+2 programs allow qualified students to transfer to University of Kentucky’s campus in their third year, thereby saving the cost of a U.S. undergraduate degree. * Students with a desire to study in another country, understand another culture, and interact with professors and students working in a different policy and problem context see many advantages of a collaborative program over an exchange or semester-abroad experience. * It allows for students to benefit from a program that draws on the teaching, curricular, and research expertise of two institutions located in two countries. * The opportunity to be part of a program that offers an undergraduate degree in a different country enhances employability prospects and career path. * Multinational companies are interested in hiring multilingual students who have studied in both countries and understand the similarities and differences in the regulatory and cultural contexts.

To Ethiopia and Back: Grace Trimble & Emily Holsopple

This past July, a group of eight female student athletes traveled to Ethiopia as part of a week long service trip. It was the second consecutive year that the UK Athletics Department has led such a group. Nominated by their respective coaches, the delegation of student athletes spent ten days traveling across the country, serving those they encountered along the way stopping at places like a leprosy colony or a sports camp where they coached local children.

Two of those on the trip were A&S students Emily Holsapple, a biology major on the rifle team, and Grace Trimble, a political science major playing on the tennis team. In this podcast they discuss their service work and how this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will stick with them for years to come.
