Cogswell was a transfer student from Arizona State University and had attended UofL for one year. UofL Associate Athletic Director for Student Life Christine Simatacolos said Cogswell was one of their elite cheerleaders and was a flyer for the UofL co-ed cheerleading squad. During her time at UofL she was a resident of Cardinal Towne, an off-campus, privately owned student housing complex affiliated with the university, according to Hebert.
