What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Visit the campus. Once you visit, if it's right for you, you'll just know. As long as you don't come on a miserable rainy day, you'll fall in love with the campus and you'll be here at the start of the next semester.

Check out the University of Louisville for their Nursing Program as well as their extracurriculars; it's a school situated in a beautiful town with great opportunities. I would highly recommend you to look at the University of Louisville for Health related programs and their athletic teams. I thoroughly enjoy the classes, the atmosphere, the students, and cheering at the University of Louisville.

Tips would be to calculate your expenses (Meal plan, tuition, books, dorm) and make sure you have enough. Also to apply for FASFA and as many scholarships as possible. Try not to get your books from the UofL book store; they're super expensive on there. Look on Chegg and you can rent your books for 70%-90% cheaper. You can also look on Amazon. All freshmen will have to complete STOMP modules. I would suggest doing them over the summer as soon as they're posted on blackboard (link on UofL website) because they're pretty time consuming. They are 20-30 minute videos w/ quizzes afterwards. I know this is a lot of information, but if you have any question, you can email me @ [email protected]

if i could advise anything to prospective students it would be to know your preferences. the university of louisville is a big school and you won't get the same type of attention you would expect from a smaller university. so as advice, to take complete advantage of your resources, talk to your professors individually and develop a working relationship for the greatest learning experience.
Samuel from Lexington, KY
Don't be afraid to be yourself, and branch out. There is something for everyone! And don't be afraid to engage in conversation with your professors, they can be amazing people!
Christopher from Sunnyside, WA
a tip for prospective students would be to take advantage of all available resources!

As far as the research opportunities are concerned, I've heard that you want to seek it out yourself. Don't wait for it to come to you! That applies to all other organizations, programs, clubs, etc. Find a few things that you truly enjoy and get involved.
Nicholas from Floyds Knobs, IN
If you're not sure about U of L, come visit! Once you do, you will fall in love with the people and campus. There is nothing to fear about college-it is fun and exciting. The worst thing is the “fear of the unknown.” Take out that factor by researching your schools, particularly U of L. You will find that the more you know about a school, the more comfortable you will be, and the better decision you will make for you. The best decision for me was to go to Purdue and visit their engineering school near the same time I visited U of L’s Speed School of Engineering. Those visits sealed the deal for me-I realized that, in this case, the education was very similar. The guaranteed co-ops, “homier” campus, and cost of tuition made the choice pretty easy. Also, don’t limit yourself by not applying to every single college you think you might want to attend! The worst feeling you can have is wondering whether you could have made it into a school and the regret you feel afterward.
John from Louisville, KY
Decide what is most important to you, and choose your university based on the few things that are most important for you higher education. If you know what specific degree you would like to pursue, then ensure that the program for that degree is a strong program in the University that you choose. Also, decide what you would like to be around your University. Louisville is very good for those seeking to make many networking connections, and for those who enjoy life within a large city. If you prefer smaller cities, fewer crowds, and a secluded University surrounded by hiking trails and forests, then find a College or University that has the few qualities that you find most important.
