Lori Cooley, 58, trains a foal to wear a bridle on June 28, 2018 on her farm in Harrison County, Kentucky. The foal's mother takes a dust bath and stays close by during training. Cooley, along with her two dogs, three cats, six goats and ten horses, lives on a 25-acre farm where she does most of the “projects” and physical labor. It also houses a cemetery, barn, both an indoor and outdoor riding ring and a cabin-like home with antebellum roots. “I mean, it’s nothing. It’s not anything fancy, but it fits the bill— with the funky old house and the cemetery...” she said, “I’m super happy here. I’ve never been as happy as I am now. I love this place." Cooley moved to Kentucky from her home of 28 years, Houston, Texas, after her boyfriend passed away in a polo accident. ×

Bouquets of flowers given to Taylor Nolan's family after her death hang on the wall of a room in their basement in Springfield, Kentucky, on March 13, 2019. Taylor died of suicide on January 8, 2019. Taylor's mother, Taylora, said she didn't know what to do with all the flowers they received, but couldn't bring herself to throw them away. Taylor was like an 'open book' and involved in multiple organizations at the University of Kentucky and outside of the university. “She loved life, and it loved her right back,” said Taylor’s sorority sister and eventual roommate Faith Turner. Taylor was open about her mental health issues and was seeking therapy and often talked to her friends and family about her mental health.

Neal and Sue Mize work in their respective offices after breakfast on Nov. 29, 2018, in their home in Lexington, Kentucky. The two are University of Kentucky Donovan Fellows, a program allowing any person over the age of 65 to attend classes free of charge. Sue attended the University of Kentucky first as an undergrad in the 1960s and then she and her husband of 41 years both chose to create a lifestyle of continued learning as current Donovan Fellows. The two are self-proclaimed addicts to learning. "It’s a creative process and it actually makes me feel good to do it..." said Sue, "... I think it does something for me, certainly mentally, but physically as well….but you get addicted, and it’s just fun.” After their time on campus each day, often including lunches in the student center, they often go home and ask ‘What was your class about? What did you learn?’ Sue said. "[We] discuss all sorts of what we’re doing, what papers we’re writing," Sue said. "I read hers, she reads mine," Neal said.

Desiree Cross drinks Ale-8 from a wine glass while her son, Ace, drinks from his sippy cup on Feb. 25, 2019, in Lexington, Kentucky. In summer 2017, Cross flew to California to pursue her dream as a model, but right before she left, she learned she was pregnant. Her pregnancy was unplanned and she said she felt confused and ashamed. “I just bawled my eyes out,” she said. She didn’t tell her friends or professors, but she asked her mom for advice. Her mom encouraged her to be strong and that her baby was a blessing—that this was God’s plan for her. She took her mom’s advice and instead of pursuing her career in California, she stayed busy working to provide for her and her future baby. When she returned to Lexington for the semester, she continued to conceal her pregnancy. Ace was born on Dec. 5, 2017, just days after his mom hurried to finish her finals for the semester. Cross’s life as a student is completely different now as a mother than it was before. Despite a lack of social support on campus, Cross has received help and support from professors and financial wellness scholarships. She says the support of her mother, One Parent Scholar House—where she lives and receives support and community from other student parents—and her faith are what have made her persevere through the challenges. “This is God’s plan for my life,” she said.

"Adaptive is called adaptive because every skier does it completely different," Nelson said.
