I love the campus itself, and there seems to be something new being added every year. Which brings me to my biggest complaint. There is always something closed off due to construction. Overall, it is a very safe campus, even though it is surrounded by some pretty rough areas of town. The university police department takes safety very seriously, and we are seeing a community being revitalized by the traffic driven by the school. The night life on campus can get a little dull at times, but it is growing just as the university is!

The University of Louisville has opened so many doors in my personal and academic career. I have met so many people and built connections with many professors, administrators, and much more. I have joined organizations such as C.O.N.E.C.T. Peer Mentoring program, the Diversity Club, and many more. I appreciate every opportunity and hope everyone is enjoying college as much as I have!
The University of Louisville staff is amazing. As a returning non-traditional student they were extremely helpful in getting me back on track to my BA. I will graduate this Summer and will start grad school at UofL in the Fall. The professors are fantastic and always create a challenging yet, very helpful academic environment. Overall the school has a small, family like feel. I would highly recommend UofL to anyone who asked!
