FastTrack prides itself on classes that prepare you for the rigor of college life but it also provides plenty of opportunities to explore what UK has to offer outside the classroom. STEMCats teams with campus partners and STEMCats mentors to plan a variety of events during Fasttrack week. These events are designed to help you make friends, settle in to the campus community, and get to know your STEMCats mentor. 

FastTrack Orientation:

Here is where you will meet your STEMCats mentor along with your fellow STEMCats. You will also be introduced to Fasttrack faculty and staff and get your schedule for the week.

STEMCats Induction:

This is your official welcome to the STEMCats living learning program! You will hear about the program and meet the STEMCats faculty Director, Dr. Vincent Cassone, along with other faculty and staff. You will also have time for a pizza party in your mentor groups and get your STEMCats t-shirt.Following the STEMCats induction, your STEMCats mentor will lead you in a scavenger hunt around campus. 

Evening Activities in WG2: 

STEMCats mentors plan and lead fun activities each night of Fasttrack right in WG2. Activities include game night (including the every popular dodge ball game) and and ice cream social featuring ice cream from a local favorite shop. Mentors will also take groups to other activities happening on campus. 


STEMCats offers a variety of helpful workshops to choose from during Fasttrack. Workshops feature campus partners such as MoneyCats, Pre-health advisors, the Career Center and Univeristy Health Services.  In addition, several workshops are also led by STEMCats mentors and include topics such as time management, campus involvement, emailing professors and what to expect in the classroom.
