CARDS Success Series

You have almost endless choices and opportunities ahead of you here at UofL, and the experience truly will be what you make of it. But not all paths through your university journey are equal, and there are some essential turns that every first year student is expected to make as you transition to college life at UofL.

The CARDS Success Series highlights important events and activities that will help your transition be as seamless and engaging as possible by giving you access to the keys to success in your first year and beyond. It's centered on these five key aspects of your UofL experience: Community, Academics, Responsibility, Diversity and Service (CARDS). Attend CARDS events to earn rewards, including your chance at one of two $500 scholarships each semester! Ready to participate? Learn more here.
