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 … The Georgia Institute of Technology—Georgia Tech—has 20,000 students and is located in the heart of Atlanta. Brian Stone Jr., a Georgia Tech associate professor of city and regional planning, is leading an urban-heat study for the city of Louisville after his research into urban climates found Louisville may be heating up faster than any other metro area. Read more about Georgia Tech here and the school’s Urban Climate Lab here
