5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Honestly, after a fair amount of traveling, I can truthfully say that Cincinnati has the best bang for your buck of any of the places I've been.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is really hit or miss by street, and prices can vary widely.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Cincinnati pretty much requires having a car to get around, but parking in Clifton is very limited/expensive.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Close to the city with hundreds of options.

Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: It is near downtown but I do not live on campus to get the full experience.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: You have to work really hard but the reward is substantial.

Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I do not live on campus therefore do not see what others see.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: There are plenty of labs on campus for everyone to use.

4 College Junior

Academics: Overall a wide variety of great classes. There are option for all kinds of learners with different interests.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like the overall energy of the school. I like the urban environment and diversity.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are some good fraternities and sororities, but I think less good ones than bad.

College Freshman

Transportation: I have a car because I commute. I have taken a shuttle between campuses and that is free, but that's about it.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Just about everyone on campus is friendly. I personally haven't met anyone who isn't.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The garages are well let and very safe, but the cost is ridiculous. It makes being a commuter irritating because we have to have our cars and we are forced to pay that price.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The communication sciences and disorders program at UC is great. Although we can't co-op we are given shadowing and observing opportunities. Some classes are harder than others, but the professors are great and very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus police can be pretty strict, but they are just looking out for the students' best interests.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: We are in a typical college town full of activities. Other people are open to students and everyone is friendly towards each other.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have very diverse food options, and they aren't very expensive.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Sometimes parties can get out of hand, but they're usually fun. There are also alot of clubs downtown that the shuttles will take us to or close to there.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at UC is great. We're involved in just about everything. Most non-greeks have nothing bad to say about greeks.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The football team is not that great and there is almost no school spirit. The stands are not even a quarter full after half time.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus is pretty good at enforcing their rules and guidelines. Exceptions seem to be made for football and basketball players though.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There's alway a party going on in Clifton but they are also always getting busted by police officers.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options and all are within walking distance from campus.

The University of Cincinnati is ideal for anyone looking to graduate with a solid education and experiences of a lifetime. At UC, there is something for everyone, no matter what background you come from and no matter what your goals are. The faculty and staff are helpful and passionate about helping students learn, so whatever program you choose, you'll get a good education. Plus, the University is always expanding the curriculum, so students have more and more options of what they can study.

The campus itself is as diverse as the curriculum, so students will be learning something new even if they aren't in the classroom. UC brings in a variety of speakers, events, and exhibits that promote different ways of thinking and cultures. The majority is not the only group that gets its voice heard. You may not get that experience at another college, so take advantage of the openness that UC provides. Cincinnati is also becoming a more diverse city, so students who are open to going off campus can experience even more. Although safety can be somewhat of a concern and parking totally sucks, UC isn't as bad as people make it seem. Keep in mind that any college has its pros and cons, and no matter where you are, you're only as safe as you make yourself. Don't skip out on UC because of a few factors because there is so much that outweighs the bad.
