UofL President will travel across Kentucky, other states to visit students, alumni


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville President James Ramsey kicks off his annual outreach tour with visits to high schools in Nashville, Tenn., and Barren and Warren counties in Kentucky.

    The stops in Nashville and Barren and Warren counties are the first of several in which Ramsey will encourage high school students to continue their education and consider UofL as their college of choice. Ramsey also will meet with UofL alumni groups, giving them updates on the upward trajectory their alma mater is enjoying in academics, research and athletics.

    “We want the very best students to keep coming to the University of Louisville,” Ramsey said. “It’s important that we tell as many of them as possible, face-to-face, about the opportunities we can offer at a great university in a dynamic city and encourage them to visit us.”

    Here’s a list of the planned outreach visits with some times and exact locations still to be determined:
