I'm a current freshman at U of L, and I love it here! The campus is beautiful; it's not too big and not too small. There are hundreds of student organizations, so there's something here for everyone! Some of my class sizes are big, but some are the same as my high school class sizes. Either way, the professors really care about all of their students, and it's not difficult to form relationships with them. The students here are so kind; everyone wants to be friends with everyone else! Students are very accepting of all kinds of people. The food on and around campus is great, but I do wish we had just a few more on-campus options. My dorm is really nice, too. I would definitely recommend this university!

Overall, the University of Louisville provides an amazing college experience for students, along with a largely diverse group of students and professors. I have no had any negative encounters with any professors thus far- every professor I've had has been very good about communicating with me and making sure I understand what's going on in the course. Campus is absolutely beautiful, decorated with seasonal flowers and hundreds of trees. The downside, however, is that there is almost always some type of construction going on. It causes for a lot of stress when students from other areas have to find alternate routes because so many roads are randomly closed for days at a time. As far as safety, considering we are placed right in the heart of a big city, I have been impressed with ULPD's ability to make students fill safe. There is almost always at least one ULPD officer visible, anywhere on campus. Overall, UofL is a great school with great opportunities.

I really love attending the University of Louisville, especially as a member of the Communication Art & Design program. If you are looking for a fantastic Graphic Design program, this is one of the best you will ever find. The program itself is very small and tight knit. The professors are not only knowledgeable about their subjects, but they genuinely care about the success and overall well-being of their students. The University of Louisville also offers a large campus experience to students, so you really get the best of both worlds. There are plenty of spaces around campus to go when you need a place to study - The newly renovated library, the Student Activity Center, the bagel cafe in the Humanities building, the benches around the fountain by the Fine Arts building- these are all some of my favorite spaces around campus. Also, with campus being nestled just a few minutes from downtown Louisville it's easy to find fun things to do when you're ready for a break from studying.
