One of my favorite 'hidden' parts about UK is not on campus! It is a place called Red River Gorge, which is a nationally recognized hiking and rock climbing park with breathtaking views and incredible trails that you can hike and get into nature! A smaller-scale version of this is the Arboretum, which is 5 minutes from campus which has trails that you can walk and run. In addition, the Bowman statue is one of my favorite spots for relaxing outside, as well as taking cute pictures with friends for events and games. Lastly, one of my favorite buildings is the Singletary Center for the Arts, which has an auditorium for different shows that the university holds, as well as lots of sculptures surrounding the grounds of the building that you can study by when the weather is nice. If you enjoy art, this is a great hidden spot for you to visit, as well as the Fine Arts building!
