Student Life

We believe learning experiences extend beyond the classroom. The Office of Student Activities and Engagement provides opportunities to connect, stimulate curiosity, and become involved in the campus community through a variety of cultural, social, and recreational activities and programs.

Louisville, Kentucky, the largest city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, is consistently ranked among the top places to live in the U.S. based on affordability, job prospects and quality of life. A vibrant music and performing arts scene, locally owned restaurants and coffee shops, and 120 city parks make Louisville a destination.
