Jared Casebolt has learned a lot at his summer program at the University of Kentucky, but the biggest surprise? The walking.
"It's so far between everything," said the 15-year-old sophomore from Bellevue High School in Northern Kentucky.
Casebolt is one of about 70 students from across the state who are in Lexington for three weeks to get a taste of college life, including the fact that it's hard to get from one end of campus to the other in just 10 minutes.
He's also getting some other new experiences: dorm life, really long lectures, foreign films, acting class and writing skills — "I'm understanding what college would be like," as Casebolt described it.
