Ramsey focusing on student recruits in U of L outreach tour

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Recruiting for U of L is not just about sports. President Dr. James Ramsey says he is trying to bring more students to the school.

Ramsey stopped by The Academy at Shawnee Thursday in hopes of encouraging the students to consider attending the University of Louisville, but he's not stopping there.

Ramsey's outreach tour has taken him to Bowling Green, Glasgow, and even as far away as Nashville, Tennessee.

"We really have two messages: One, the importance of higher education and getting that college degree; and two, that students should take a look at U of L and visit our campus and check us out," Ramsey said. "We think that they'll be pretty impressed."

Ramsey's visit marks the first time a college president has visited the Academy at Shawnee.
