I was delighted to recognize a UK colleague in this Chronicle blog post about the Second Life Teen Grid College Fair this weekend. Way to go, Beth! Along with UK, Penn State, Oxford, and Vassar are participating in this event which is much like a real world college fair (talk to admissions representatives, get help filling out forms, etc.) Who knows how many prospective students they'll actually reach, but it's an interesting concept. I've got a lot more to say about Second Life but I'll save it for a series of future posts.
On a related note, it's so cool to see UK blue everywhere this weekend. As I type this, ESPN is setting up for GameDay coverage right outside my library.
