Louisville gave me everything I didn't know I needed to succeed! I found professors to be very accessible and for the most part understanding; Campus life to be awesome, but the best part was living in such a cool city! The city of Louisville is now a place I am very happy to call home, that has amazing restaurants, bars, and a great music scene. The campus fits smugly in the middle of everything going on, and does a great job of keeping its students in the loop of city happenings. I also found student organizations and other ways to get involved on campus extremely accessible and student support resources existed and I knew where and how to get help if I needed it.

I am a music student at UofL double majoring in Choral Music Education and Piano Performance. I absolutely love the campus, the people I met here, the professors I work with, the facilities, and the environment! I have so many wonderful opportunities to go to conferences, travel internationally, work with world-renowned performers and clinicians, and push myself to be the best student I possibly can. Go Cards!
The University of Louisville is not like other universities. At UofL, you really learn what it is like to be a proud "Cardinal" and what"Cardinal Pride" really means. I had the privilege of the oppurtunity to leave home and go to an out-of-state college, but chose to attend UofL because I thought it was the right fit for me. And I was right! The university is amazing and I reccomned everyone to apply.
