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 … Virginia Tech is one of three public universities in the United States with both an active Corps of Cadets and a “civilian” lifestyle on campus (the others are Texas A&M and North Georgia College and State University). The school has 31,000 students, and the main campus is located in Blacksburg. Check out more here.
