Nightlife: The party scene is ok,they really don't get crazy,unless your off campus,dorms have strict rules so you won't find many on campus

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our football stadium is quite large and grand, I park next to it everyday. The buses do work quite well most of the time, though they get packed at certain times a day. The engineering program is very popular, and seems quite intensive.

Facilities: The library is really cool, one of my favorite spots. The Student Activity Center is fun to hang out in, though it is beginning to show its age.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great selection of varied restaurants, none overly expensive. Some are a bit far to walk to, but that's not the worst.

The University of Louisville isn't perfect, but to those who love it, the flaws only add to the experience. Not everyone likes going to such a large university—it can be very intimidating, especially if you come from a smaller high school. However, the crowds offer an opportunity to improve your social skills and make as many new friends as you want. And even with a huge student body, most people find a tight group of friends that they stick with throughout their time at U of L. Most students make friends with other residents in their dorm hall or by joining clubs or Greek organizations.

The professors and other University staff are so friendly and offer lots of personal attention. You wouldn't normally expect this at such a big school, but that's one thing that makes U of L special. Another thing the University provides is an almost endless list of opportunities for students. They may have to go looking in the right places, but there are so many things for U of L student to try out and experience. There are plenty of study abroad opportunities, as well as a career center that can help students get internships and jobs after they graduate. However, even with all of these opportunities and resources, some students say they don't feel that U of L offers enough for them. However, some people just fit better at a smaller school. A single college will never fit everyone's needs, so there will always be some left unsatisfied. If you take advantage of the resources, you'll have a much better chance of enjoying your experience. U of L has a lot to offer—you just have to jump in and grab it.
