It is up to you to participate in your own education and we are here to serve as a guide and as a resource. You are now part of a community that has larger implications on a greater number of people. Open yourself up to the experience, in and outside of the classroom and to the diversity this campus affords. Most importantly, participate in positive dialogue with people that might have a different worldview. You will find yourself connected to a vast network of engaged people that will be invaluable to your experience here at UofL.

My advice for A&S students:
This is your life!  Take responsibility for yourself and your actions.  It is ok if you do not have a clear path for your future because most of us have changed directions more than once in our lives.  What is important is that you do not lose yourself in the process and that you make good choices on your journey.  Have confidence; be strong; and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

Phone: (502) 852-1326

Education:
BA History, Bellarmine University
MA History, University of Louisville
MA Higher Education Administration, University of Louisville

My advice for A&S students:
Enjoy your time in college and don't rush into anything. If you have an idea what you want to major in and pursue as career, by all means follow your ambitions. If you do not know what you want to do, don't rush into a major or program of study for the sake of finishing in four year. Better to take an extra semester and be happy later on in life than realize you are unhappy with what you are doing fifteen years after school. Also, do not be afraid try new subjects and remember just because you didn't like a subject in high school, doesn't mean you wont like it in college.

My advice for A&S students:
Your learning in college is not limited to the classroom. Get involved on campus, work on campus or join a student group. You will learn invaluable lessons both inside the classroom and through your engagement on campus. College is your opportunity to discover new things, challenge your notions of the world around you, and figure out how you want to *be* in this world as an individual and as part of a larger community. Take advantage of this opportunity.
