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.
Review University of Louisville
I'm a current freshman at U of L, and I love it here! The campus is beautiful; it's not too big and not too small. There are hundreds of student organizations, so there's something here for everyone! Some of my class sizes are big, but some are the same as my high school class sizes. Either way, the professors really care about all of their students, and it's not difficult to form relationships with them. The students here are so kind; everyone wants to be friends with everyone else! Students are very accepting of all kinds of people. The food on and around campus is great, but I do wish we had just a few more on-campus options. My dorm is really nice, too. I would definitely recommend this university!
So far I love this college. It's been a great place to seek a degree out for my career, as well as having a great faculty that wants to help you out if you show the drive that you want to succeed. It's got a great safety network as well, which is great for those worried parents! The one thing I'd love to see change is their list of courses for Asian Studies. Currently, it only expands to China and India, but I think that there are many Japanese and Korean people that would love to see that included as well.
