Come to the Advising Fair dressed up in your UofL red and black and walk right up to the West Lawn to participate in the "Cards Cheer Zone" where you will help cheer the UofL Football team to a victory against UK!

  • The UofL Cardinal Marching Band will be out on the West Lawn around 12:30 to lead students, advisors, faculty, and staff in the cheers (videos coming soon)! 
  • If you would like, you can meet up with the band at 12:10 in one of the following three locations: outside of the Speed School of Engineering, outside of the College of Education & Human Development, or outside of the residence halls (West Hall).
