3 College Junior

Academics: Too much emphasis is placed on athletics. Academics at U of L fall by the wayside. Programs are cut and done away with while the size of the football stadium takes the forefront. Ridiculous.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Many students from many different backgrounds, ages, races, etc.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Rarely do you see an empty bottle to even indicate campus drinking.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Lots of activity around greek, athletic and community events.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: A lot of options for parties, many in Greek Row, but there are options around local pubs/bars.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Great school with lots of programs, I feel like there could be more student education around services to help students with academics, they are available, but it can take more work than you'd like to access them sometimes.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug/alcohol usage is not so bad that it makes you feel unwelcome or unsafe, still a lot to do if you don't partake in these activities.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: A lot of social activity at night, local bars/pups/restaurants see a lot of activity when school is in session.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Variety of parties is pretty good, mixed with greek, athletic and community events.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: good school with a lot of program options, needs more online courses

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is absolutely diversity and the campus handles it well.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Abuse is not so much of a problem that it's something present that you see everyday. Again this survey was taken about local university Murray State, not Louisville, Louisville is 3 hours away.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Local campus is not a bad school at all, but we're a pretty rural area. The more the town grows the more there will be to do, but it is definitely a college town.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Medium sized local university, I've transferred away this year to go to a bigger school with more online options and better reputation.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I honestly don't hear about a lot of issues but I'm not directly involved in something that would educate me about it either.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are getting rather old, could absolutely use some updating.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I've been involved in Greek life before, and while there are various options to participate in, I don't feel like there is a lot of interaction between the community.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Good experience, but definitely doesn't has as many options for online courses as some of the bigger schools a few hours away. The campus is beautiful and well kept, very active community of people walking, running & exercising around campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: While there are definitely options for athletes, we have no professional sports team and really only one college team worth following, but there are teams within 3-5 hours that get a lot of support.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: It kind of depends on which dorm you are in but all the dorms are good. I live in threlkeld and the facilities aren't amazingly nice but they fulfill what I need and it has a great community and the entire experience I would argue is the best dorm experience on campus.

Greek Life: There are a lot of different Greek life organizations with different cultures so there is some diversity and they are all pretty active and fun.

Athletics: Many people who follow sports like to go to all the games and can go see their favorite teams play.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of the professors go above and beyond, but for the most part U of L professors are very impersonal.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So much scandal surrounds the university, I wonder if my degrees will be taken seriously. I am pretty well qualified but the school no longer offers field experience opportunities.

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.
