Hello! Welcome to Home of the Cardinals. I'm glad that you have decided to make U of L your home for the next four years.
I'm a Junior Psychology major, born in Louisville, KY. I'm glad that I did not have to travel far to find a new place to call home. U of L is a welcoming campus and I couldn't be happier anywhere else. After my three years on this campus, my biggest piece of advice for new cardinals would be to invest your time into your university. As a cardinal, you are a part of the campus community, so be sure to give back to it and invest your time and skills into it. This is where you will sleep, eat, learn, and work.
So live it up! Get involved! This will keep you connected to campus and will have a positive impact on you inside and outside of the classroom. I've been involved in everything on campus, from housing to mentoring programs.

Hello everyone, let me be one of the many to welcome you to the University of Louisville!
I want to congratulate you on becoming a Cardinal. I am a senior looking into Architecture or Hospital Administration. I was born and raised right here in Louisville. I love going to Churchill Downs, Bardstown Road, and the Waterfront. Whenever I am not cheering on the cardinals (no matter what sport), I like to play intramurals and hang out with friends.
The biggest piece of advice I could give a freshman student would be to explore the available organizations and get involved in an organization you are passionate about; if there isn't one, create it!

Hey y’all! Welcome to the greatest university in the nation! I’m a junior. I hope to attain a Bachelor of Science in Communications and attend graduate school to continue my education (at UofL, of course). I’m from a small town in Indiana. There are about 4 times more students at UofL than in my entire hometown, and I can honestly say that stepping outside of my comfort zone and coming to Louisville was the best decision I’ve ever made. I came into college without knowing anyone, so I know how intimidating college can be at first. Luckily, UofL has a place for everyone. There are endless opportunities for each and every one of you, no matter what your interests are. I hope that I can be of assistance to show you all that this campus has to offer! I know that everyone will fall in love with THE University of Louisville just like I have in my time here.
Hello and Welcome to U of L. Congratulations on your decision to study here. My name is Alex Helbling. I am from Ludlow, KY and am a junior Biology major. I love sports and especially enjoy going to football and basketball games. When I first arrived here on campus, I wasn't sure what to expect, but quickly fell in love with the University as well as the city. There are countless things to do on campus as well as around the Louisville area. The biggest piece of advice that I could give someone is to get involved, whether that means getting involved in a Greek organization or joining some club on campus. There is something out there for everyone. The more that you get involved with, the more fun you'll have and you'll get a lot more out of your college experience. Trust me, four years isn't that much time.
Hey, Hey, Hey! My name is D'Ante. I am a Junior in Communication and I hope to pursue a career in Public Relations.
Welcome everyone to the University of Louisville, home of the CARDS!
Welcome Cardinals, to the University of Louisville!
Hey guys! Welcome to the University of Louisville! I'm a junior double major of Spanish and Political Science, in addition to minoring in Latin American and Latino Studies. I'm originally from the good ole NKY, but now Louisville is where I call home. I love me a good GIF, some Modern Family, cat videos, Harry Potter references and traveling abroad. Let me congratulate you on choosing the University of Louisville! There has never been a better time to be a Louisville Cardinal with our Sugar Bowl Champion Football team, extremely talented basketball team, as well as all of the recent developments on campus! I can honestly say that choosing UofL is one of the best decisions I have ever made. There are limitless possibilities and ways to get involved around campus. Here you will meet new people and make lifelong friends, memories and experiences. If you have any questions, concerns, want to show me a hilarious cat video or whatever- hit me up! I'm here to help you in any way I can. I want to ensure that you have the best college experience possible! I can't wait to meet you and help you get involved on campus! Remember there is something for everyone here at UofL. GO CARDS!
Hello my new friends, and welcome to UofL! My name is Grant, I’m a junior Biology major and History minor, and plan to attend medical school upon graduating this wonderful university. I am from a small town in eastern Kentucky that you probably have never heard of called Russell. I graduated from a high school of 600 total students, and had a hand in just about everything possible in high school. My transition from high school to college was a challenging one, but looking back it was one of the greatest times of my life. I had the opportunity to meet so many great people and get involved in so many great organizations. My best advice to you is don’t be afraid to try something new or do something that you may never have done in high school. You only get so many semesters in college, so you want to make the most of them!
Hi there! I hope you’re enjoying being a Card as much as I do! Being at the University of Louisville is one of the many great choices you will make. As a sophomore here at UofL, I am majoring in Social Work with a minor in Political Science. I’m originally from Georgetown Kentucky, a town small enough to make Louisville seem like New York City. That’s why I love it here so much; Louisville has so much to offer. When I’m not taking advantage of UofL’s awesome recreation center or library space, I enjoy visiting the malls and catching a movie. I have stuck my feet in the water when it comes to campus involvement and at this point, I’m ready to plunge head first. You should join me! I can help you find awesome opportunities on campus.
Hey guys! My name is Mitchell Payne and I am yet another person to welcome you to the University of Louisville! I am a junior majoring in Marketing here at UofL. My summer home is in Northern Kentucky, Fort Thomas to be specific. Louisville is a great place to go to school because of its atmosphere. There are plenty of things to do here at Louisville outside of your schoolwork. Some of my favorites are Churchill Downs, Bardstown Road, and, of course, going to Louisville games. I think the most important thing for your first year in college is to have an open mind. You are going to meet so many new people and have completely new experiences. No previous schooling is going to be able to prepare you for the environment you are about to encounter so you have to be ready for anything. I don’t mean that to scare you, but more to implore you to make the most of the experience you are going to have!
Hello Cards!! Welcome to The University of Louisville. I am a sophomore Political Science Major with a double minor in Justice Administration and Paralegal Studies. I come from a small town called Glasgow, Kentucky. While UofL has been a HUGE change for me I have loved every second of my transition to the big community that makes up UofL. The best advice I can give you is be excited about your opportunity to join the Cardinal Family and let yourself be open to all the amazing opportunities that this campus has to offer you. I'm here to help you become involved and answer any questions that you have! I was in your shoes this time last year and would love to be able to help you prepare! I can't wait to meet you!
Hello everyone, and welcome to the University of Louisville!
