UofL ATHLETICS | Quick look at the Academic Center of Excellence

06/03/2016 08:30 AM

Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium is undergoing a number of renovations, but one that affects much more than the football team should be completed this July. The Thorton’s Academic Center of Excellence is located on the south side of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. It is connected to the football stadium, but the academic center will serve as the hub for academic operations provided to all of Louisville’s Student athletes.

Josh Heird, the Assistant AD of Facilities and Championships gave cn|2 Sports an exclusive look into the big renovation.
