The Commonwealth of Kentucky is a state of the United States of America and was the 15th state admitted to the Union.
Kentucky and its residents are probably most well known for thoroughbred horses and horse racing, local whiskey distilleries, and enthusiasm for basketball (The two principal basketball rivals in the state are the University of Kentucky (blue, Wildcats) and the University of Louisville (red, Cardinals)).
The largest cities in Kentucky in terms of geographic area are the two merged city/county governments of Lexington-Fayette and Louisville Metro, although Louisville and its metropolitan area both have a much larger population than Lexington and its metro area.
UnionCollege is known as the birthplace of fraternities as the first greek organisation in the United States (Kappa Alpha) was founded there.
UnionCollege is also referred to as 'the mother of fraternities' because many fraternities, including the first three in America were founded there.
Despite suffering a decline in membership and chapters due to actions of the college's administration at the end of the 20th century and the very beginning of the 21st century, greek life continues to flourish and be a powerful positive influence on the campus and community.
