Hello Cynthia!

Greetings from the University of Louisville. As some of your students prepare to join our Cardinal Family, we are here to answer any questions they may have. Of course, students can always call or email our office, or connect with their personal UofL admissions counselor. But if your students would prefer face-to-face meetings, we're offering additional ways to meet with us this spring.

New Cards at Night
The Office of Admissions is open Monday-Friday from 9-5 EST, and we're always happy to meet with students without an appointment. Students who can't make it to campus during the day can join us for New Cards at Night extended office hours every Monday, January 28 - April 29 from 3-7 p.m. They'll have the chance to meet with multiple university departments: admissions, campus housing, financial aid, orientation, metro college.
Free and convenient parking is provided, and the meetings will take place in one, centralized location on campus. Virtual visits via Skype may be scheduled upon registration.
Registration is encouraged but walk-ins are welcome.
New Cards at Night Details and Registration.

Pop-in Tours
Do your students need one last look at campus before they make their final decision? Admitted students can us for a Pop-in Tour Mondays-Fridays, February 11-April 22. 45-minute student-led tours will leave promptly on the hour (10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. EST) from the Office of Admissions. (Check in 15 minutes prior.) While on campus, students can meet one-on-one with admissions and financial Aid to discuss their next steps. They can also check out their residence hall (please request a housing tour 48 hours in advance of the visit).
Free and convenient parking is available and visitors will receive a discount at the Campus Store and a reduced price for lunch at the Ville Grille!
No registration necessary.
Learn more about Pop-in Tours.

Future Cardinals can find a complete list of their next steps on their First-time Freshman Checklist. Please reach out to us if you or your students have any questions.

Go Cards!

Dear Senior Guidance Counselor,  


We would love to introduce a wonderful opportunity at Lindsey Wilson College to you and your students – The Bonner Scholar Program!

The Bonner Program is a vehicle by which students commit and devote themselves not only to service but also to making connections between their community experiences and their academic pursuits. On behalf of the Bonner Scholar Program, we would like to invite your students to consider applying for this excellent service learning opportunity. In doing so, they are taking the first step to join a diverse group of dedicated individuals who are striving to make a difference.

The Bonner Scholar Program provides some financial support toward a college education for most of these students who demonstrate financial need and a commitment to service.

Lindsey Wilson College is one of approximately 67 colleges and universities nation-wide honored to host a Bonner Program; and, we are one of only four schools who received a $500,000 endowment in 2010 to help fund the program. Bonner Scholars will commit to an average of 10 hours of service a week- 280 for the academic year. These hours are made up mainly of time spent serving at a community site of the Scholar’s choosing, but also from activities such as workshops, meeting & training sessions, retreats, and trips that address important issues facing today’s society.


We would love for you to send us the names of your highly service-oriented students. We have enclosed a description for you and your students to review. If your students are interested in learning more about the Bonner Program from staff and current Bonner Scholars, we would encourage them to attend an Admissions Preview Day, open on Monday, February 18, and Saturday, March 23 (Talent Showcase-Bonner Interviews). Please contact me at 270-384-7469 for additional information regarding Bonner applications - the deadline to apply for the Bonner Scholar program is Friday, March 15th.   

If you have any questions or concerns or need more information, feel free to e-mail Natalie Vickous or Lainie Phelps You may visit our website at, where your students can also access a fully online application. For more information about the Bonner Foundation please visit their website at

We hope you will encourage your graduating seniors to join us as we try to make a difference in the lives of “Everybody, everyday.”

Thanks so much.
