The campus is beautiful and easy to get around. For the most part everyone is super friendly and willing to help (classmates and professors). Tons of entertainment through our athletic departments, clubs and facilities. It's awesome to be on a campus with people from all over the country and world! But the area around campus is the safest and a bit run down but all of that can be avoided! Education is outstanding and mentors/ advisors are always on site to help with any questions and concerns.

I have had a wonderful experience at the University of Louisville so far. Everyone on the staff and faculty have been extremely helpful when enrolling, financial aid, figuring out classes and even finding my way around campus. I would highly recommend this university!
U of L is all about the athletics. There is little emphasis on the actual educational aspect of the college. Labs lack equipment and leak water. Faculty and staff are often sub-par. Parking is a nightmare. The school is incredibly over-priced and consistently increases tuition by the max amount allowed by law, every semester! There is always to much controversy surrounding the school, that I am pretty sure my degree from there is laughable.
