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.

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.
