  5. Advice for LLC/TC Students:
    1. It’s never too late or too early to get engaged on campus. There are so many opportunities to form connections and make friends! Options I highly recommend include attending a workout class at the SRC, Sign up as a “Free Agent” and joining an intramural team, to find volunteer opportunities, going onto Engage UofL to find an RSO to join or event to attend, Attend a SAB event ( IG @uofl_sab), Find a job on Cardinal Careers, Go Greek (IG @uoflfsl), and get a VILLE’NS student ticket membership. Also, follow Commuter & Transfer Initiatives (CTI) on IG (@uoflcti)!
