Overall Experience: I would choose the University of Louisville if I could choose a school all over again. Although not all my experiences there have been good, I have gained a lot of friends and made some good memories along the way.

Overall Experience: UofL had everything I wanted. The engineering program is one of the best. It offers three paid co-op programs and I will graduate with my masters degree.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is the diversity that it offers from the different students and how the University itself makes you feel like you are at home. Coming in as a freshmen they made you feel really welcomed and you had the chance to interact with a lot of people. Attending the basketball and football games is also an amazing view because we are a D1 athletic school.

Off-Campus Housing: Have not really look off campus but there is a lot of good off campus affiliated apartments and cottages that are wonderful.

Party Scene: Parties are great and it is usually the same group of people, it is either frat parties or athlete parties. Pick your poison.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
