History of The Speed Book:

In the mid-1940's the Speed School Student Council began producing a comprehensive freshmen handbook, then titled The Speedway. The tradition continued through the 1990's and in 1997 a completely overhauled untitled version was given to incoming Speed School students. The goal of reaching out to first year students was so important in the early 2000's the Speed School Student Council adopted a mandate to produce a freshmen handbook each year into their bylaws. However, even with this charge, no such book has been produced since 2007. In early 2014, the Executive Directors of the Speed School Student Council decided to explore the possibility of resurecting the freshmen handbook. Their decision lead to the creation of The Speed Book. 

 

The Speed Book is a publication of the Speed School Student Council made possible with the assistance of the Office of the Dean of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville. The book and website is a guide to Speed School and life as a Louisville Cardinal for first year students. However, we hope this resource is helpful to all people interested in the J.B. Speed School of Engineering and the University of Louisville. The Speed School Student Council has worked to ensure the information contained in this guide is accurate at the time of publication.
