3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I will be living at the Bellamy next semester. The process of signing the lease was very simple. The worst thing about off-campus housing is, of course, the cost. The options and availability is great; if the prices were lower, I would have no complaints.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I mainly just eat what is on campus at UofL or what I buy from Kroger.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think UofL's policies are understandable and reliable. I feel comfortable with the strictness of authority on campus. My friends are always getting parking tickets on campus, although I have never received one. Most professors are actually pretty strict when it comes to attendance and honor code.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is much like any other process at UofL. With this being said, the earlier you apply for it the better. Although I did not receive any aid, I would advise everyone to apply.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I personally do not participate in any parties. I work at UPS and therefore work Friday nights, so I don't have time to party. I would rather just hang out with friends and watch movies, etc.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus food is overall good but not great. For one, near most dorms (Community Park, Kurz, etc.) there aren't many options that take flex points/meal swipes. It would be extremely convenient if places like Qdoba and Mt. Fuji, beside Cardinal Towne, took flex and swipes. If this were the case, students would have more options and wouldn't have to go too far to eat. All in all, UofL has a variety of options and the meal plan is a great source.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing at UofL is great. Unlike most universities, I have a rather larger room with plenty of space. The cost is reasonable and worthy. Most of the housing is close together so it's convenient to hang out with friends and socialize with students who live in other buildings. Most of the dorms are new so the amenities are clean and up to date. Overall, I would definitely recommend living on campus to any UofL student.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I had a full ride it was great! then I lost it and had to work at UPS to get school paid for. It's great not owing them a lot of money but I HATED UPS. Now I'm looking for other scholarships to pay for school.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They have many programs that inform us and try to prevent those things from happening.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I live off campus, so I barely eat on Campus. A lot of the places you can use your meal plan are fast food restaurants too. Which I dont eat often at all

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: They have a lot of different communities offered they've just built two different ones within a year. I stay at home with my parents though. Saves me a lot of money

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: I'm a Louisville Native so I'm used to it!

4 College Student

Health & Safety: The University of Louisville has made it a goal to spread awareness of how to deal with crime and personal safety on campus.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: It is great to live on campus. The three freshman dorms to choose from are Miller Hall, Threkyld Hall, and Unitas Tower. They are traditional dorms and very comfortable in my opinion. It is common to see people hanging out in the lobby, either socializing or doing homework. Everyone within the dorm get along and interact well with each other. One of the biggest resources while living on campus are the staff, including the Resident Assistants and Desk Assistants. They are always there to help you in any way they can, as well as organize activities for their residents.

Greek Life: Greek life on campus very common throughout campus. People affiliated with Greek like are very active in school activities and contribute a lot to their community. However, most fraternities and sororities stay somewhat within their inner circle. This causes tension between non-Greek students and Greek students. For example, Rush week is very competitive as frats and sororities always want to recruit more members. They become very friendly towards them, however if you do not end up joining their organization, they become very distant. In the University of Louisville, there is an entire area dedicated to the Greek Life Housing.

4 College Student

Local Area: There is always something to do in Louisville. However, there is a bunch of stuff to do for people to do. School activities, the Rec center, and the SAC are always open and offer many opportunities for students to have fun and take a break from studying. Even downtown Louisville or Bardstown Road offer many fun activities to do.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not the party type . So I wouldn't know :)

3 College Freshman

Local Area: It's alright , I find it hard to find things to do . It gets old doing the same things.

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.
