3 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is so much going on you can always try different options or go to familiar restaurants especially on Bardstown Rd or in St Mattews

Administration: It is how you would expect it just not too crazy. They only get strict when it is needed.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: My FAFSA keeps saying there is a problem, well the school says that, but there isn't anything wrong with it and I probably will not get money from them great!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: You cannot have a lot of Ville Grill you will hate it unless its Brunch Saturdays or Sundays

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoyed the dorm rooms. They were better than ones I have seen at other colleges. Definitely big enough.

3 College Junior

Local Area: After a few years it's just another town.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Regardless if you live on campus or off it's very expensive.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: They do offer scholarships but they are hard to come by,and really nor enough for the size of the school.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Completely unreasonable pricing. Truly takes advantage of students.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Louisville has many options for dining off-campus.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are many parties at fraternities.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I never felt that student safety was a priority. Often at night security guards that should've been strolling the campus and parking lots were hanging out in their cars for hours.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not have financial aid but I have a merit based scholarship. It has helped tremendously in paying for my tuition.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are way too many swipes on meal plan. Ville Grille was the worst option yet I felt forced to go there just ot use my swipes. I did love the flex dollars. However, it was impossible to use all the swipes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It was nice living on campus because I'm finally fully independent. I lived in a very old dorm so I wasn't as satisfied as those in newer dorms understandably. I had a very close relationship with my roommate but no with other residents. The convenience was the best part, the proximity to the library was excellent.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off- campus, campus-affiliate(Bellamy, Province, Retreat, Grove, etc) housing and apartments are really nice, but outrageously expensive. They charge around $800/mo. per person. So if 4 people live in an apartment together, it's still around $800/mo per person.

Off-Campus Dining: The cost is the same for the restaurants on campus as they would be off campus. I've heard nothing but good things about Mt. Fiji and it's something different, not fast food. It allows a little bit of variety.

Party Scene: I have never been to a campus party but the way people talk about them on social media, they seem pretty fun.

Scholarships: I did not receive any financial aid. I think that is stupid because my parents are not helping me with college. The amount of financial aid a college student gets should not be based off their parents' incomes.

Campus Food: Campus food is alright. The ville grill has some good food and its close to the dorms and only costs 1 swipe to get in and you can swipe in friends. The sac has a lot of great options.

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but I have several friends that do. They love it because the dorms are easily accessible to all parts of campus and you can get to any building on campus in around 10 minutes or less.

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.
