Weekend College brings some of UofL's top minds to alumni throughout the nation for special lectures.

Keith Mountain, chair of the Department of Geography and Geosciences and state geographer for Kentucky, discussed what glaciers reveal to us about global climate change. Jesse Wright, M.D., director of the UofL Depression Center, shared the newest insights into depression from the fields of genetics and brain science.

President James Ramsey shared his perspective—as a policy maker and an economist—of UofL’s vision for the future and the university’s importance to Kentucky’s economic wellbeing.

The following day, the university held a game-watch party in Naples for the UofL vs. Villanova men’s basketball game. More than 150 alumni and friends attended, including special guest Coach Emeritus Denny Crum.

UofL has more than 2,500 alumni who live in the Naples area, making it an attractive place for outreach activities, said Keith Inman, vice president for university advancement.
