I am a transfer to the University of Louisville, I transferred from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas. I am a junior in college, and I am taking all of my classes this year online. I have so much on my plate with work, and cheer practices, that normally I have barely any time for school, but since now that I am taking all online classes starting this semester, I can manage my own schedule and do everything I need to do during the day or week as I need to and whenever I want to as well. I love taking all my classes online at the University of Louisville. All of the online professors are very informational with online courses and I feel like I am learning way more online than I would be in person classes. This is my first year to take all of my classes online, and so far I am making A's in every single class. I will defiantly be taking all online courses for the remaining of my college classes throughout the next few years. I love everything about University of Louisville!
Having currently attended Uofl for a full school year, here is my synopsis of my experience so far. I feel pretty comfortable on campus as far as safety is concerned. They have a well-lit path that students can use after dark if they have late classes and those of us who commute can use the school's Tarc buses to get around campus. Although you get used to it, parking at the stadium off campus is a bit of a con. There is lots of places to eat lunch on campus. Some of the buildings could use some work, as well as the roads near the stadium, but we make do. The Professors I've had so far have been decent, no issues past communication. Homework can be a bit heavy at times, but that's just college. My worst complaint at the present is the expense and lack of communication. If you intend to apply, make sure to stay informed and ask lots of questions. Meet with your advisor every semester, research payment and scholarship reapplications carefully, check your email, and get that degree!
I absolutely love UofL and do not think any other college would be better for me! That being said, it still is not perfect and could always improve. UofL prides themself for being the most diverse school in Kentucky, yet they do little to support minorities on campus. It is the most inclusive school, but UofL could do even more for their students. Safety is another issue, as there are many crimes that happen right off campus students are unaware of. Campus is safe, but anywhere off can be a little sketchy. I have never had any safety issues but I know some people who have. Despite this, it is still an amazing school with something to offer for every student!
