Louisville's campus and facilities are beautiful. The buildings are classic, inviting and comfortable. I worked at the Office of Admissions and had the most wonderful time meeting fellow students and staff and created life long friendships and partners. I received the Cardinal Covenant scholarships which gave me the ability to graduate debt free. I also studied abroad and had a great experience with the study abroad office. All in all I had a great experience.
