The UK campus is alive again and business is booming once again at establishments in and around the school.

More than 30,000 students are back.

The staff at Mad Mushroom Pizza said this is what they've been preparing for all summer long.

"It's the main income of our business," said Todd Hart, manager, Mad Mushroom Pizza.

Hart said about $10,000-$15,000 comes in each week during the summer, and $25,000-$30,000 when the students are back.

"I'm glad they're back. Everybody makes money. Everybody's happy. Everybody's busy, that's a good thing," said Scott Abel, Manager, Mad Mushroom Pizza.

Classes start Wednesday.

Let the economic impact for area businesses begin.
