Despite its diversity, there are some things that nearly every University of Louisville student has in common. There are certain traditions and daily actions that just about every student participates in. You know you go to UofL if you can relate to any of these things!
When my family came to visit, the first thing that I taught my little sister was not to step on the Cardinal logo in front of the SAC. All UofL students know that if you step on the cardinal and don’t kiss it, bad luck is coming your way.
This goes more for the freshmen, but either way, I know that I have spent way more time than necessary at the good ole VG. It’s to the point where not only everything tastes the same, but a lot of my clothes smell like it too.
Being stuck with an 8am class is bad enough, but when it’s on the other side of campus, you dread the class even more. I had to get up pretty early for my 9:30 in Natural Sciences and can’ fathom the class being any earlier.
There are probably more insta pictures of you throwing up an “L”, than not. When you see an obvious Cards fan in public, it’s hard not to throw one up immediately.
The UK vs. UofL rivalry is a big one. I grew up a UK fan, but realized soon after arriving at UofL, that was not going to fly. When I see kids walking around campus in UK gear, I think to myself, “What is wrong with you?”

As much as you’d love to wait and hear “Walk Sign Second Street” in a country accent, jaywalking is the route you typically take. I almost got hit once, even with a walk sign, so what’s the point, right?
When it rains in Louisville, it pours, and it does so often. As a prospective student, I was told to get some good rain boots and an umbrella during every tour I went on. The signs posted about flooding are no joke.
I’ve absolutely loved my first year at UofL, and I’m sure you have to. When they say “It’s Happening Here” they really aren’t kidding.
