57 WINTER/SPRING 2018 The University Club is now offering one more thing to look forward to when the workweek ends: Friday happy hours. The happy hours are scheduled every Fri- day from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Pub. The idea to start hosting happy hours came in direct response to guest feedback. "We recently surveyed our membership and in response to those who felt the club was limited with evening hours, we are develop- ing fun programs and events that we hope address some of those concerns," said Linda Johnson, director of membership and mar- keting at the University Club. "This will be one of other new offerings." For example, the U Club is also experi- menting with the idea of Sunday brunches on the second Sunday of the month. "We want people to know the club is part of the university where they can feel comfort- able having fun and connecting with friends and colleagues and perhaps decide to become members. I think a lot of people think this is either just for alumni or it's too expensive, but it's not. It's for the university community and there are so many categories of membership," Johnson said. Griffith Unseld U CLUB'S CALL FOR HAPPY HOUR Wes Unseld, 68A, and Darrell Griffith, 80A Cardinals Wes Unseld, 68A, and Darrell Griffith, 80A, were inducted into the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame in 2017. Griffith attended Male High School from 1972-1976 and turned away a professional offer following high school, as well as offers from countless colleges, to attend UofL. Griffith attended UofL from 1976 to 1980, winning the National Championship his senior year. During his time at UofL he scored 2,333 points over 126 games. Unseld led his high school team, Seneca, to the Kentucky State Championships, snagging the trophy in both 1963 and 1964. Unseld attended UofL from 1965 to 1968, scoring some 1,686 points and grabbing 1,551 rebounds in over 82 games. Solid Light, a Louisville-based firm whose employees include multiple alumni, designed the Hall of Fame, located in Elizabethtown.
