| Oh U of L, how I loathe, the. Let me count the ways:|
I spent two years paying for University requirements that were pointless to my major, and insulting to my intellect;
75% of my tuition money was spent on re-plating the gold on the chandeliers in the dorm rooms of star athletes instead of on my education;
Since I'm not part of a fraternity or a major athlete, social life seems to be non-existent because I'm not willing to drink to the point of inebriation in exchange for social acceptance;
The classrooms I study in are in dilapidated buildings, although the University continuously upgrades athletics facilities;
And despite all of this, the University continues to turn its back on the regular students and gouge them for more money instead of helping them.
In 1997, U of L announced that it was working toward having a premier athletic program. Since then, education quality has been the same, although tuition has skyrocketed. As you walk around campus, you will notice that average classrooms meant to cater to students are antiquated, and dorms continue to crumble. But when you look at the athletics offices, you see where your tuition money is really going: A-class equipment; climate-controlled offices and dorms; daily maid services; etc. For everyone else, you're just a cash cow.If my parents hadn't graduated from here and pressured me into coming here, I would have never attended this slum. You're a walking dollar-sign to this university, not a student or even a person. If you're not a star athlete, don't even bother looking at this place. You'll spend less money and get a better education at any regular community college than coming here.

| I have loved attending UofL and wouldn't trade my experiences for anything. College is what you make of it. You can have a great time at UofL if you get involved and put as much in to your college experience as you want out of it. If all you do is attend class and then go home, you will hate it. Actually be a part of this campus and get involved and you'll love it. |

| I hate this place. This university is so concerned about athletics and propaganda that there is nothing for the average student. Most classes are taught by TAs and not professors, so most courses are taught perfunctorily because the TA just wants to get you out the door so that they can focus on their own courses.|
And as for social life, you need to join a fraternity or sorority and have a taste for booze and hard partying, if you want a social life. Otherwise you will just be ostracized by the cliques and frats that dominate the campus, and left to fend for yourself. Oh, I stand corrected: be a star athlete, and maybe the university will hand you everything, including grades, even if booze or partying are not your highest priorities.If you really want an education and a good college experience, go someplace else! This place only cares about getting your money and using it to boost their local media impression and their sports teams. I'm in my second semester here, and I'm ready to get out.
