Kellly’s Show Us Your Life this week is all about Alma Maters!!!
I went away my first year of school to Northern Kentucky University. I missed living with my family and wanted to go to a school with a football team so I came home. Ha!
In Louisville (at the moment anyway) you can go to any public school in the county if you’re admitted. So I went to middle and high school in downtown Louisville. When I was a senior in high school I was determined not to go to UofL because it was a block away from my high school. Funny how things end up??? Ha!
I attended UofL from the fall of 2005 to the spring of 2009. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Communication.
I love UofL’s campus!
I love UofL Athletics! Go Cards!
I loved the large classes. I could skip more class that way! Ha!
I had a different college experience than my first year going away because I was a commuter. I lived about 25 minutes away from campus. I did not get involved in a lot of campus activities but I think fondly of my college years because of other life events.
2nd Semester at UofL (Spring 2006) – I met and started dating Chris
Fall 2007 – Chris and I got engaged
Spring 2008 – We bought our first home
Summer 2008 – We got married
Spring 2009 – I graduated!!!!
I must also mention that I married a diehard UK fan (UL’s rival) but we had our wedding reception at the Brown & Williamson Club at the Cardinal’s Papa John’s Stadium. That is true love!
My least favorite thing about UofL (as a commuter) had to be parking! I literally followed students walking to their cards so I could snag their parking spot in this garage!
One day I’d like to go back to UofL and get my masters… when I figure out what I want to do when I grow up! Ha!
A mother can only dream that her daughter will follow her footsteps and go to UofL. The colors already look great on her!
