Louisville’s music therapy program introduces mobile clinic Thursday, Oct 22 2020 

By Delaney Hildreth —

U of L’s Music Therapy Clinic has been moving up and out recently. The clinic has been providing music therapy services to those with emotional or health-related needs. They are introducing a new mobile service they’re calling the Mobile Clinic: a vehicle that houses various musical instruments used for music therapy.

“The van provides a mobile, one-stop-shop that can bring more of our services and equipment around campus, on facilities, or at one-time pop-up events,” Chris Millett, coordinator of the Music Therapy Clinic, said. 

The clinic uses music as a method of healing and a way to connect with others. It’s meant to provide a distinct way for the clinic to extend its services to more people and more locations, either for scheduled use or for various events the clinic may hold.

“The mobile clinic has the ability to bring all our regular services anywhere, as well as providing extra storage for events where we might use a lot of items, like group drumming, and has a retractable awning for outside use,” Millett said.

Millett said the mobile clinic is especially beneficial during the pandemic.

“This has been exceptionally valuable during COVID, affording the availability to continue providing in-person services in a safe way.”

The Music Therapy Clinic offers innovative music therapy techniques to target those with disabilities and health needs and provides families with affordable options for services.

It continues to live out its mission statement by providing cutting-edge services to the public, safely and effectively. Students can arrange to utilize the mobile clinic or the Music Therapy Clinic’s other services by contacting them at

Construction of new dorm and Ville Grill renovation continue on track Thursday, Oct 22 2020 

By Eli Hughes–

Construction continues to progress on campus, as the new residence hall and renovation of the Ville Grill stay on track for their openings.

The Louisville Cardinal reported in July on the first phase renovation of the Ville Grill, stating that the second phase of renovations was expected to be completed by the end of October. John Karman, director of media relations for U of L, confirmed recently that the Ville Grill is still going to be completed near that deadline.

“The construction for the second phase has already started, and the plan is to have it complete by the end of the first week of November. Students will be able to use the space before the Thanksgiving holiday,” Karman said.

The second phase of construction on the Ville Grille will add a second floor that will increase the capacity of the facility from 400 to 600. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, only 200 people will be allowed in the building until further notice.

The new residence hall is also on track for its opening which is currently set for August 2021. Students will be able to live in the new residence hall as early as fall 2021.

The new residence hall will consist of five stories with 452 beds, 120 of those beds will be used for living and learning communities.

According to Director of Campus Housing Tom Hardy, the dorms will be enhanced traditional style.

“The enhanced piece means the restrooms are not your typical line of toilets, showers, and sinks; instead each restroom, and there are several per floor, contains its own toilet, sink, and shower for much more privacy,” Hardy said.


The building will also contain classrooms, two-tiered study lounges and game rooms.

The Cultural and Equity center is also currently under construction and will feature office suites and a courtyard. The buildings will be directly next to each other, but not connected internally so they will have to be entered separately.


Students were given a chance to help decide the furniture for the residence hall at the furniture fair on Sept. 28 and 29.

Another event related to the new dorm construction is the topping-out ceremony. Planned for Nov. 17, a topping out ceremony celebrates when the highest point of a building is complete. The ceremony will occur over live stream and U of L President Neeli Bendapudi will be in attendance. See more photos from inside the building below.
