Hey, y’all! My name is Grace Neely Johnson and I serve as the Director of the UK Visitor Center – I’m also a proud member of UK’s Class of 2017. I am a Lexington-lifer (Lafayette High School alumna – Go Generals!) and spent my childhood dreaming of one day being a Wildcat. As a student at Kentucky, I was involved with organizations such as DanceBlue and Cats for Christ campus ministry and held student worker positions at the Visitor Center and with UK Athletics. I graduated from the Gatton College of Business with my degree in Management and a minor in Being a Tour Guide (kidding – but only kind of). I spent three years of my undergraduate career serving as a student tour guide and absolutely fell in love with welcoming prospective students to our Kentucky Home – now, I’m lucky enough to call it my full-time job!

At this point, I leave the campus tours to our current student tour guides, but I’m here to introduce prospective students to UK and assist them in navigating the enrollment process. Questions about admissions or visiting campus? I’m here to help. Welcome to the Big Blue Nation - Go Cats!
