With intersecting cultures and traditions meeting and mingling, Louisville is a crossroads where the American South and Midwest meet the world.

This is a place where you can make demonstrable change, where you can build something. The creative community here is supportive, the palpable energy is motivating, and the resources are growing every single day.

This is a city evolved and evolving.

The ongoing addition of dedicated bicycle lanes throughout the city makes it easy to access the nightlife of 4th Street Live, the festivals and activities of Waterfront Park, and the newly-opened Big Four Bridge. Old Louisville, adjacent to the school, is the host to Shakespeare in the Park, Central Park, and the St. James Court Art Show.
