Involvement is key to success at Speed School. The University of Louisville has plenty of recognized student organizations on campus. By getting involved students develop a network of friends that can help with classes and provide a venue to vent some frustrations.
Speed School Student Council.
The Speed School Student Council (SSSC) is a division of the University of Louisville Student Government Association. SSSC is tasked with serving the students of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering. SSSC hosts events and forums each semester to engage students.
Here at Speed School every engineering discipline has a designated student group, Speed Societies. These are professional societies that work to connect students and faculty with engineers working around the world. These societies are listed on the next few pages. Some Speed Societies compete internationally in various competitions. Some of these groups are part of Speed Societies, while others are multi-disciplined. New groups are always forming, so follow the Speed School Student Council (@ULSSSC) on Twitter to learn more about these groups.
Recognized Student Organizations (University-wide).
UofL has over 300 recognized student organizations covering a wide variety of student interests. These groups provide a wonderful opportunity to become involved in campus life and connect with other students.
Intramural Sports (University-wide).
UofL offers both recreational and competitive leagues, clubs, fitness programs and facilities that focus on providing participants with exercise, recreation, competition, and fun.
Often the desire of a Speed School student is to become a member of a Greek organization. There are 19 fraternities and 12 sororities on campus. These groups create bonds with other students while giving back to the community.
This year the University of Louisville became a part of the Atlantic Coast Conference (the ACC). In the 2012-2013 season, the world took notice, proclaiming it the #YearoftheCardinal after becoming the first university ever to win a BCS bowl game, send both men’s and women’s basketball teams to the NCAA final four, and reach the College World Series. The Louisville student body raises “the L” high and represent Louisville First, Cardinals Forever.
Students can enjoy most home athletic events for free or can purchase student tickets for men’s basketball and football.
