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
My experience with the University Of Louisville has been a very pleasant one. At first, I was overwhelmed with the size of the campus. It wasn't long, before I realized the campus was not as big as it felt. I realized it has a warm and friendly atmosphere. Students seem to be very friendly and helpful as well as the teachers and staff. The classes are engaging and intellectually stimulating. I really love being a card... lets go!
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!
