The school visits are the latest in Ramsey’s outreach program to encourage high school students to continue their education and consider UofL as their college of choice. To date, Ramsey’s 2014 Presidential Outreach tour has included stops in Nashville, Tenn., Glasgow, Bowling Green and Shelbyville. School principals and counselors often tell Ramsey this is the first time a college president has visited their school to talk to students.
“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 the schedule for the Oct. 15 and Oct.16 visits to area high schools:
Wednesday, Oct. 15
1:20 p.m. – duPont Manual
Thursday, Oct. 16
8:30 a.m. – Atherton
10 a.m. – The Academy @ Shawnee

The president, UofL Admissions Director Jenny Sawyer and others plan to visit students in Pike County, Marion County, northern Kentucky and southern Indiana. Ramsey will be available for media interviews at all of the stops.
