I choose this amazing college because I like there basketball program. Also i like the school and it has my favorite color blue.The official nickname for the University of Kentucky's athletics teams is "Wildcats." The nickname became synonymous with UK shortly after a 6-2 football victory over Illinois on Oct. 9, 1909, on the road.

Commandant Carbusier, then head of the military department at old State University, told a group of students in a chapel service following the game that the Kentucky football team had "fought like Wildcats."http://geology.com/cities-map/map-of-kentucky-cities.gifhttp://geology.com/cities-map/map-of-kentucky-cities.gif

What's it really like to be a Wildcat? In a word – awesome! The University of Kentucky can provide you with a world-class education, filled with the possibility of new ideas and learning experiences that will prepare you for the future. But life on campus also offers plenty of other experiences beyond what takes place solely in a classroom.

Getting involved in a student organization is not just fun and games (though they are a lot of fun); it's about making you a happier and more successful Wildcat. Research shows that students who are involved with a student organization are more connected to their university and perform better in the classroom. And with more than 450 student organizations, there's an activity for you at the University of Kentucky.

Firefighters are employed by fire departments across the country. Fire departments are funded by governments at the local, state, and federal levels. Some private companies have their own internal fire fighting services.

Firefighting is an essential service, and fire halls must be ready to respond to emergencies at any time, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As a result, most firefighters work on a shift system in which they take turns working 10-hour days and 14-hour nights, to a total of about 42 hours a week. They may also have to work every other weekend and on holidays. It is typical for firefighters to take 15 to 20 vacation days a year.

Firefighters are often exposed to the elements. One day they may be standing in the freezing cold on a highway, cleaning up after an accident. The next they could be exposed to fires burning at hundreds, or even thousands, of degrees with hundreds of pounds of equipment on their backs.
