Overall UC is a beautiful campus with an endless amount of opportunities to make friends, get involved and obtain a well-rounded education! My only advice is to travel in groups if you are leaving campus, It is not in the best area and out of the other universities in OH, we are at the butt end of every joke about possibly getting robbed on the way to class.
I love my school, there are a handful of things I would change but overall it is friendly, the professors are top tier, there are fun and knowledgeable activities all around and it’s a welcoming campus. Go bearcats !
I think it is alright. I am from Kentucky and not used to the inner city and that it why I was happy with everything being online. But in the fall I will be in person. Of the times I went on campus, the energy was always high. I do not know many people at this school but so far everybody seems nice.

Looking back at my college experience, if I could give myself a piece of advice as a high school senior I would have stressed the importance in obtaining scholarships. I have graduated and entered the workforce but my income isn’t as high as I expected an individual that possess a bachelors degree to be. I have discovered what my student loan monthly payments will be and it has made me realize that I don’t generate enough income to pay for my student loan debt. Scholarships are out here for a reason, to help. I wish that I could go back and stress how important it was to help myself in the present because it would help me in the future. If I could give a piece of advice to a high school senior today, I’d tell them that sacrificing your time and energy seeking and applying for various grants and scholarships is 100% worth it because it will only help you in the long run.
My classmates in CCM are already my family after only six weeks, and I've never met more adventurous, artistic, curious, friendly and vivacious people; the general UC population is also an incredibly diverse, talented and amazing group of people.
The worst thing about my school is that I believe there is no scholarships geared towards student who is not in financial need and came from a upper middle class family. These types of families are expected to pay for their children's college no matter what the circumstances are. I feel like I struggle more with paying for school than actually the work I do in school. I wanted to become more responsible so I took on all the loans for my schooling so I could be in charge of it.
UC is very friendly and the perfect size.
I like how the teachers are engaged with the research. They seem to know a lot about what they're talking about and they are excited about it too.
IT'S SMALL AND COMFY.
Only a person who is prepared to be getting overcharged and go on wild goose chases for his or her degree should attend this school.
Students that are nto used to diversity would most likely not feel confortable here.
The most frustrating thing would have to be not enough one on one time with your teachers. It is a very large university, with 200 in one of my classes, and I would love more time to talk with and get to know my professors.
I wish I had known how much more money you spend outside of what is covered under tuition such as books, housing repairs, etc.
Their campus is one of the U.S's best!!
The football team even though I've never been to a game or have ever watched them play. I just hear about it often.
I honestly can't think about what the stereotypes are of UC students. Though the diversity here is low compared to some schools (and I may be biased coming from an extremely diverse high school), there are people from many walks of life and I don't think it's very easy to generalize about UC students.
Overall, I think the University of Cincinnati is a good school. The best thing about the school would be the school spirit that everyone has. You generally don't run into anyone that doesn't have some pride in being a UC student. The one thing I might change about UC is the food courts, I'd like if they'd have healthier foods or change the way they use "swipes." The size of the school is perfect though. All the buildings are close together and there aren't any major roads running through it making it just for students only. When people tell me that they go to UC, I get excited because that's where I go as well. If they are going for a different major than me, I'm able to learn more about the school through them. Most of my time on campus is spent at the library. The main library is big enough that you can find your own area to study and there are other smaller libraries throughout the campus. The only issue that I have with UC actually isn't the school itself, but the area around the school. If you go off campus, you're not in a safe area, but if you're on campus, they make sure that you feel safe. Living off campus without a car is difficult sometimes during the winter or when it gets dark out, but they have enough shuttles running around that you generally don't have to worry about that. The University of Cincinnati is a great school though with students who show a lot of pride. There are a lot of fun little traditions that you learn year by year and the football and basketball games are always tons of fun and there are always so many students showing their support.
The academics at the University of Cincinnati aren't bad. Depending on the size of your class will determine whether the professor knows your name. If it's a big lecture hall with tons of students, unless you really interact with the professor, they won't know your name. If it's a smaller classroom though with about 15 or 20 students, the professors usually try to learn your name. My favorite class right now would be Musculoskeletal anatomy. Although it can be a difficult class because of everything you have to memorize, learning to palpate the muscles and what each do is very cool. My least favorite is physics because it's so hard for me to grasp what's going on sometimes.The amount of time that each student spends studying differs with the person, but you will always see students in the library at any time of the day studying. The class participation again depends on the size of the class. Usually in a larger class, the same students answer the professors questions, but in a smaller classroom, more students speak up. My major is Health Science/Pre-med so I take some difficult classes and some not so difficult classes and some classes that are very interesting and some that aren't so much. I know that everything I am taking and am going to take is important in my future and trying to get into medical school. They make sure that I take the classes where it is necessary for me to learn the material for the MCATs.
Around 10% of University of Cincinnati students join a fraternity or sorority, so it's fairly popular, but not necessary for social survival. Frat parties are already going on before the first week of school, and are a great opportunity to get to know another side to your new friends.
The most popular student groups include Fraternities and sororities, the RAAP program which I described in the last question, or Religious organizations. Another popular organization is the RallyCats. This is an organization that goes to all the sporting events and “superfans” for the players. They cheer the loudest, are the most spirited, and paint up the most.
The organization I am involved in is called the Navigators. I feel so at home with the Navs Community. The majority of my friends come from this organization. And as a result of the organization I have grown so much as a person. I have learned more from this organization than I have from my classes at UC.
Catskellar (campus bar) after class on Friday. We will shoot some pool and play some darts, then head to a friends place for drinks. Either party there or head to another bar. There is tons of stuff going on in the city, Newport, and Mount Adams, and UC provides shuttles to all of those places on the weekends. I like to play some pickup soccer on campus on Saturdays, or head to Eden Park (one of the best city overlooks) and do some climbing on the old reservoir wall. Night life begins around 9pm.
Football seems to be the big deal around here, but the soccer games are fun too. The tailgating is all I'm ever in it for. Everyone is very generous while tailgating on the south side of campus. TONS of food, beer, etc. I've never made it into one game...
My classes are pretty interesting because we deal with current issues (many of which are in Cincinnati). My studio class is pretty hands on, and the professors treat us as intellectual equals.
The general intro level classes (sociology, econ, etc.) are pretty easy to skate by, but if you really apply yourself when putting together your schedule, you will actually enjoy class. Crazy I know- there are just so many options. For example, right now I am taking "Music of the Beatles" for a Fine Arts credit.
