Ariah from Elizabethtown, KY
The University of Louisville is an excellent college with an outstanding health/science program. I am interested in the Nursing Program at the University of Louisville's Nursing Program because of their Instructor's qualifications and background and the surrounding medical centers. The Biology and Chemistry classes at U of L provide a sound basis for Nursing Theories.
Alyssa from Cleveland, OH
UofL is a great school. They're big on diversity and is a really big sports school. There's always free food and something to do. The school even go as far as sending out monthly emails letting you know where the free food will be.
