None that were taken seriously- they had a career center that was underutilized and some job fairs, but not frequently. They didn't prepare me personally for the real world. The business school or teaching school or engineering colleges may have been better, but arts and sciences doesn't prepare students for what is needed in the workplacd

It's a big school, very sports-oriented and with a big Greek (sorority/fraternity) presence but is big enough that "geeks, nerds and brains" can find a niche as well. It's also located in one of the most wonderful "small cities" in the world - Lexington, KY - a little slice of paradise on Earth!
