Instagram vs. Snapchat Stories

In August of 2016 Instagram released its new “stories” feature. For anyone who may not know, a story is a way to share a picture or video with a 24-hour expiration. Since then the feature has evolved and people have had time to adapt and develop an opinion of the new feature. While many people…

#EatLoveLou does #Freberg17

“People who love to eat are always the best people.” This quote by Julia Child is what got everything started for Allison Myers.

A Little Bit About Me

Hey! My name is Natalie Uhl and I’m a Junior at the University of Louisville. I’m a communications major and have a passion for public relations and sports. I’m originally from small-town Memphis, Indiana and spent my first two years of college at Western Kentucky before I finally landed in Louisville.

As a thrower on the UofL track team I spend a good chunk of my time with something heavy in my hands at the track or in the weight room.
