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!

The University of Louisville has many extraordinary programs, extra-curriculars, and most importantly, instructors. I have formed so many fulfilling relationships with my professors in these past three years. I'm double majoring in Psychology (BA) and Justice Administration (BS) and the two majors overlap perfectly. UofL has changed me for the better, and made me fall in love with my intended career path, while making my journey to my degree a smooth one. UofL has an excellent career center, and I use my work-study aid to work in the university writing center, which has improved my writing skills while also preparing me for a professional environment. I'm honestly proud to be a Cardinal!

I like my major (Communications) and many of the professors in it. Some of the professors are not only knowledgeable and helpful, but have real-world connections that they are willing to extend to their students. My biggest complaint with the university is the foreign language program. I took three semesters of Spanish and the workload for the four credit hour courses increased exponentially every semester. The last semester had so much homework, I was having to not do or throw together assignments for other classes to do Spanish (and I was only taking 13 hours!) It required an excessive amount of work, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! Something has to be done about that.
