The University of Louisville isn't perfect. It has its flaws, but to those who love it, the flaws only add to the experience. Sure, not everyone is going to like such a large university. It can be very intimidating, especially if you come from a smaller high school. However, the large crowds that can be intimidating can also offer opportunities to improve your social skills and make as many new friends as you want. Even with a huge student body, most people find a tight group of friends that they stick with throughout their time at U of L. The ways most people find their friends are through clubs, Greek organizations, or in their dorm halls.
Other than the large student body, one of the first things you'll notice is how much personal attention and friendliness the professors and other staff offer. You wouldn't normally expect this with such a big school, but that's one thing that makes U of L special. Another thing the University provides is almost endless opportunities for students if they just go looking in the right places. Study abroad opportunities are available, as well as a career center that can help you get internships and jobs after you graduate. Even with all of the opportunities, some still don't feel that U of L offers enough for them. Some people fit better at a smaller school rather than a large school. A single college can never fit everyone's needs, so there will always be some left unsatisfied. If you take advantage of the resources, you'll have a much better chance of enjoying your experience. U of L has a lot to offer—you just have to jump in and grab it.
