University of Kentucky

Welcome to Greater Nashville!

  Nashville Area Alumni on Facebook (login required)

All alumni are welcome to join in the University of Kentucky alumni network.

If you are new to the area, send me an e-mail. I would be happy to meet you and talk to you about the community and our club.

If you are looking for a closer connection to the University, you can find it here. Each year we hold several events for local alumni. Some of these events include watch parties for UK basketball and football games, student recruitment receptions, social outings to cultural and sporting events including the SEC men’s basketball tournament pep rally, scholarship fundraisers and an annual Summer Picnic/Student Send off, just to name a few. We would love to have you join us for all of them. It is through the support of dues paying members that we are able to provide programs such as these.

If you are not from Nashville but happen to be in the area during one of our events, feel free to stop by. Any UK Alumni are always welcome.

Please let me know if you are interested in becoming more involved in the club or if you have suggestions on how we may better serve our membership.

The Greater Nashville University of Kentucky Alumni Club is the local chapter of the University of Kentucky Alumni Association.  Our goal is to promote the University of Kentucky and keep our alumni connected. 

Annually, the local Alumni Club provides funding for scholarships for one or more Nashville area students attending the University of Kentucky. This year our club has awarded three $1,000 scholarships to local students. These students are excited about what is sure to be a successful academic career in Lexington.

The GNUKAC won awards in 2014 for Most Improved Club – Out of State, Best Contribution to Student Recruitment – Out of State, Best Contribution to Scholarship – Out of State and Best Contribution to Friendraising – Out of State. For scholarship information, please contact the UK Admissions Office.
