3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of fast food places, but if you look in all the nooks and crannies, you'll find some of the best spots in town

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It's college, expect a larger workload without the professors treating you like a baby.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Being a criminal justice major, I get notified of special internships all the time. Every major tries to get their students great internships/jobs

Greek Life: The Greeks...it's pretty similar to the movies, always partying, although they do their work on occasion. I would have to say though, it's great to not be looked down on for not being in the Greek life scene.

Guys & Girls: People are people, everyone is beautiful. Why are we rating their looks?

Facilities: Most people are friendly, there's almost always something to do.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I cannot register for classes until last semester is paid for. Classes start this month and I'm still dealing with the financial aid department. I've contacted them multiple times and each time a different excuse as to why they haven't gotten my package together. First it was 'I wasn't in the system', then the excuse was because it's summer break, fafsa was broke, or some other ridiculous excuse.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus allows for more social interaction, especially when you have to walk somewhere after dark, you'll need a buddy or pepper spray. The cost is not too bad, but it would be a lot nicer if average students could get the newer, more luxurious dorms and amenities as the athletes.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors are great, some are terrible. It's just like any other school

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Haha value of a degree? Let's go thousands of dollars in debt because the school wants to raise tuition for new athletic facilities. Sure, you can get a job, but it's just a degree, where it comes from shouldn't matter.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's not a bad place to be. You never know what you're going to see.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There's always parties on or near campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is far too much money and attention going towards athletics. We need to start focusing on education. Athletes are always getting off the hook for everything. Yes, I guess winning a national championship calls for a little celebration, but new stadiums for almost every sport is ridiculous.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Really? It's downtown Louisville, every day there's some sort of crime whether it be a shooting or a robbery. The university police are a joke. Always sending out alerts for crime in the area, they usually leave it up to LMPD to deal with the crimes. I think they get their officers from Rent-a-cop

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Campus dining options are about average.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Good selection of majors for career options

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Not many options but the food is decent.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: UofL is the most diverse school in the state if KY

Off-Campus Dining: Its great at first but unless you go far off campus it gets very boring.

4 College Sophomore

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.
