    UofL’s Equine Industry Program, part of the College of Business, has graduated 305 students since 1989, when the first – and at the time only – graduate earned the degree. 2012 saw the most equine graduates with 21.
    The University of Louisville Police Department received a Friend of the Department Award from UofL Housing last week. According to the nomination letter, the police department did not receive a single complaint from RAs during the 2016-17 academic year. “… the police department has done a very good job of interacting with residents and has shown a stronger presence in the campus community,” the letter reads.
