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.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is a huge rip off. I would never live on campus and waste money this way again.

1 College Sophomore

Computers: I never have working WiFi in my dorm room. It is a huge hassle. Also the cost for prints is pretty high.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is close to downtown Cincinnati but not many students go downtown. Getting downtown and paying for parking is a pain.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The city is not prepared for snow at all. We had so many cancellations this semester. The campus also has a large amount of wind tunnels.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: This school is great. Teachers care and are willing to go the extra mile for students.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You can very obviously see many students, including minors, engaging in excessive drinking during the weekend in Clifton.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There were no scholarships that I was eligible for.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I did not have to do anything specific to get into my major.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love CSD! I would choose it again in a heartbeat. With each class, I love it more and more! I want to be a speech therapist or audiologist. There is a huge demand in these fields!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: While the housing off-campus may not be luxurious, it is still way cheaper and than on-campus living!

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I'm typically a home-body and do not go out a lot (saves money). When I do bars are typically my preference, and I haven't found one I don't like.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Plenty of computers available for students but it is always nice to have a laptop. Network and speed are always good, and wireless access is usually available in buildings. Having a laptop is nice in class and to more easily access class assignments and notes.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy the fact that my major is available as a distance learning option. It gives me the ability to finish classes at home while I work on my internship and study for my board certification.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship at UC.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are several scholarships but many are not available to graduate students or are so specific in their requirements that I can not apply. It is difficult to find any scholarships that are open at this time of year too.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: A bigger city feel mixed with the college town atmosphere!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A great mix of options as far as menu and cost goes. There are always your typical options but also some different fun options! Always seems to be something new and different to try.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love the distance learning options available at UC. It makes taking classes much more convenient and easier to take over the summer. The curriculum is typical of a masters program, highly competitive, but definitely doable.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I typically walk around campus so transportation is not a big deal for me. It is always there if you need it (like in the winter) but typically walking and biking are just fine.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The snowy conditions can make it tough to get to class but are usually not too bad. Its a plus having all four season, and the fall, and spring are both beautiful!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Price, and proximity to campus are superb. Safety and landlords are average, everyone is friendly and welcoming.

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.
