How It Works

The CARDS Success Series is a great way to stay involved throughout your entire first year here at UofL, and nothing is better than being rewarded for attending fun UofL events! Here's how it works:

  1. All first time freshmen and transfer students in their first two semesters at UofL are eligible to earn rewards, and every UofL student is welcome to attend any CARDS Event.
  2. At each CARDS Event we'll track attendance, so bring your Student ID to all events. It's your responsibility to make sure you sign or swipe in with event organizers, and we recommend that you also keep a record of all events you attended. 
  3. You earn a guaranteed reward once you have attended the minimum number of designated CARDS events set for the semester, and you'll also be entered to win one of two $500 scholarships for meeting that semester's requirements.
  4. First Year Initiatives compiles attendance records for all CARDS events, and we will notify participants when you have reached your minimums and earned your reward. At that time we will let you know when reward pick up will be scheduled. If you have questions about your progress, you can email us at firstyear@louisville.edu with your name and student ID. Again, we recommend that you also keep note of which CARDS events you have attended.
  5. Although your attendance at certain events may be expected during Welcome Week, overall program completion is optional.

It's as easy as that to get involved and have fun on your way toward the best year ever, including fabulous CARDS Success Series rewards!
