Matthew Mitchell - Wired Coffee Chat

 

Coaches in UK Athletics aren’t only committed to their team’s success.

This was on display recently when women’s basketball head coach, Matthew Mitchell, shared some of his life lessons and wisdom with A&S Wired students during a weekly Coffee Chat.

Coach Mitchell discussed his life as a high school history teacher prior to his collegiate coaching career. He began as the leader of a classroom and soon became the leader of a winning, Division 1 basketball team.

He stressed the importance of having character, and he challenged students to develop character that pushes their efforts, and will move them to focus on their passions rather than financial success. He also stressed honesty, hard work, discipline, and principle as winning tools that he uses on and off the court.

Located in Keeneland Hall, A&S Wired provides students with a dynamic skill set that will instill social responsibility and prepare them to excel in scholarship, research and service. For more information on A&S Wired, visit wired.as.uky.edu.

Coffee Chat with Mayor Jim Gray

 

When you live in A&S Wired, you are connected to community.

And that certainly was the case when Lexington Mayor Jim Gray recently stopped by one of the monthly coffee chats to discuss the city that the students now call home, and their interaction within that community.

The mayor discussed the important relationship between UK and Lexington, especially with campus’ close proximity to downtown. He talked about the future of the Rupp Arena district, as well as how Lexington has been recognized as a top city for raising families.

The students were fully engaged as they inquired about the progress of the CentrePointe block in the middle of downtown, as well as other major plans the mayor wants to concentrate on for the future of Lexington.

Located in Keeneland Hall on UK’s north campus, A&S Wired allows first-year students to realize connectivity on all levels – from virtual to face-to-face, and from local to global. For more info visit wired.as.uky.edu
