·        VIDEO: Hundreds of incoming freshmen have been visiting the Belknap campus for the past few weeks, learning the ropes at orientation before they arrive for the fall semester. Here’s a brief look at orientation through the eyes of an incoming student from Ashland, Kentucky. Watch here.

·        Fifteen UofL students traveled to Ireland May 16 to May 27. The group was hosted by the Mary Immaculate College of Education in Limerick and led by Mark Leach and Oscar Aliaga, both of the College of Education. See photos here. Read student blog here.

DID YOU KNOW?

 

On July 1, the University of Louisville is joining the Atlantic Coast Conference! Between now and then, UofL Today is bringing you a few tidbits every day about the 14 other ACC schools. Later, we will use this spot for daily morsels of information about UofL.

 

Did you know … that Clemson University in Clemson, S.C., had a total of 21,303 students in 2013, and the most popular degree awarded that year was in civil engineering? Originally an agricultural college (complete with a herd of hundreds of dairy cows), Clemson makes and sells its own ice cream and blue cheese on campus. Find out more here.

HR Items of Interest

3.) How to design presentations for a diverse audience

June 26, 10 a.m., Room 103A

Free

So you have to do a presentation and you’ve got everything ready. You’ve got the materials, and tools, room is all set up. But what else might you need? How about an understanding of WHO is participating? The U.S. Department of Labor reports that between 50 percent and 80 percent of adults may have some form of a learning disability whether it is formally diagnosed or not. This seminar will give you some easy ways to communicate information no matter the learning styles or abilities of your audience.

Additional Information: Registration, email brett.steele@louisville.edu.
