About The Louisville Metro Area - Excerpt From The Department Of Admissions:

Louisville offers fun, variety, and location. Located on the scenic Ohio River, Louisville is the largest city in the state with about one million people in the metro area. The weather in the summer can climb well past the eighty degree mark, but the winters are mild, and the spring and fall offer a time to go outdoors and enjoy the spectacular sights. There is never a lack of anything to do in the "River City," because Louisville knows how to party. On any given weekend it's easy to find things to do and see that don't cost much: international festivals, art fairs, neighborhood festivals, flea markets, outdoor concerts, museums, historical landmarks, events at the new Waterfront Park and much more.

Tying It All Together: Why Atmospheric Science at UofL?

There are several universities across the U.S. with Atmospheric Science programs, but many cannot beat the Louisville area's various and ever-changing climate patterns. Louisville has seen snow on the ground one day - and 70 degrees the next... hurricane force winds... ice storm damage... major tornado outbreaks... along with everything in between. The rich weather history of Louisville makes UofL a perfect place to study the atmosphere and its processes.

UofL is committed to providing our students with the best possible education. Our relatively new atmospheric program has been given an all-new lab with state-of-the-art computer technology and a conference room to help our students better understand the atmosphere. Our professors actively research not only our atmosphere but those of other planets - giving students a real idea of relationships and connections from one planetary system to another.
