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 … Florida State University, in Tallahassee, Florida, counted more than 40,000 total students in the fall of 2010. The main campus sports a 31-foot-tall bronze statue called the Unconquered Statue, depicting a Seminole riding a rearing horse and holding a spear. The spear is lit for major university events and also at sunset the night before each home game. Click here for more.
