4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have many areas to go to for help if necessary. I have heard many people say that they had a positive experience with them, but I have not used them myself.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Seriously, look up the place you choose to live in before you sign a lease. I have lived at three different places in the last year for my own reasons. The first place was an expensive dorm, but it had a great environment for engineering students and was very close to classes. We also had events every two weeks for the engineering majors. The second place was worth an average amount, but the hallways are constantly dirty and it took four months to resolve our air conditioning issues even though all of us asked maintenence to fix it. The third place I lived at is brand new and has great amentities, while also keeping a decent price. Although it has some issues, the place literally just got built so of course there's still some kinks to work out.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I believe our Greek Life is average. I don't care anything about it since it's not for me, but I do know a lot of people who joined a frat or sorority.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not a sports person, but most people in Louisville whether they are a student or not have an opinion on our univsersity's sports team. They either support us or the University of Kentucky.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many professors are passionate in their teaching and provide many resources for students if they seek to use them. However, there are also many professors that really don't do anything for their students. You should always look up your professor before signing up for a class to find which end of the spectrum they lie on.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Hard to meet people but great campus

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A lot of the classrooms are set up like normal classrooms you might see in a high school, which really helps in adjusting to the new environment of starting college. But they also have a lot of traditional lecture halls that really make you feel like a college student. The professors here are from all different backgrounds and many of them are experts in their field. There even some professors that wrote the textbooks that they use in class. Because UofL has such a diverse staff it allows them to offer a wide range of classes that really do help toward your degree. Overall the classes and professors are some of the best.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Louisville really tries to help out students with future career planning. They have a student career center that helps with making resumes, setting up job interviews and internships, and even set up mock interviews to help those looking for a job be prepared for their interview. They also have a lot of seminars that students can attend filled with info on everything from study skills to how to build your first resume.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very well lit and has its own police force that are on campus 24/7 to make sure that everything is ok. Even though the campus is so close to the city I've never felt that I've been in danger and I'm comfortable walking alone. The school takes any kind of sexual assault or misconduct very seriously and all staff is required to report anything that a student might tell them. But if you want to do it yourself there are offices on campus you can reach out to for help.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Since the university of Louisville has been around for over 200 years a lot of the Greek life clubs have been around for a very long time. The fraternities and sororities are supported by the students a lot because they always host events for both the students and the community that really help everyone be included. I myself have been to a few of their events even though I'm not joined with any of the Greek life clubs. Most colleges make those clubs feel really exclusive but at UofL anyone can join and feel that they're a part of something bigger.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The University of Louisville has some of the best football and basketball programs in the country. Our teams are always going on to finals and championships. Many of the sports offered by the university and very closely affiliated with the NCAA and have state of the art facilities. When it's basketball or football season you can tell because everyone in the city of Louisville, not just UofL gets excited and cheers on our athletes. The energy everywhere is just amazing and you can tell that people are proud to be a part of the University of Louisville.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being a freshman and the University of Louisville has been an amazing experience so far. I've met people from all walks of life, since UofL is the most diverse college in the state of Kentucky. The people here do a really good job of planning events that make our transition into college a lot easier and fun. If I had a chance to go back to high school and enroll in colleges I would most definitely choose the University of Louisville again and again due to its amazing campus, awesome professors and classes, and just great overall feel.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The athletic program is one of the best in the country and is fully supported by the local community. Students are fully engaged in the program and team morale and spirit is at an all time high.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from this school is almost no different than a degree from a much smaller school, but all of the opportunities, services, and help given by this school is extremely valuable.

5 College Sophomore

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.
