4 College Student

Overall Experience: Overall, this school is a good one and there is plenty to do here.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I think the value of a degree from any school is great. It is encouraged that in any field you have a degree of some sort which just makes you more desirable by any company when hiring. When looking to get a job, I think the degree program in which one is enlisted in is important and depending on that program, it is either easier/harder to get jobs within that field. But when we earn a degree, especially from the University of Cincinnati, it is a great accomplishment and it is something we should be proud of.

Health & Safety: Even though we are located in a not-so-great part of town, the police and everyone here makes sure we are safe and secure.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The proximity of the residence hall to my first semester classes is fairly far away, but for the price of staying here, it is worth the walk.

5 College Student

Athletics: All the athletic teams are good and it is a lot of fun to go to the games. We revolve around football mostly, but overall, it is so much fun to go to games and have fun watching the team win.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The students are nice and overall, the campus is in really great shape. It is easy to meet people and make great friends.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors seem to actually care about their students. If I have a issue I fell pretty comfortable talking to my professor.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Cincinnati anad UC police are constantly monitoring the area.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life is a huge part of my school. I do not participate in a fraternity, but all of the fraternities and sororities are very accepting and most of them do good for the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The recreation center on campus is amazing! There are swimming lanes, a pool, two basketball courts, and 2 other basketball sports that usually have different sports like volleyball or badminton.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My college is a very fun campus, and its like you never meet a stranger. My school has sports that are good, and the student section is very fun, energetic, and supportive of the team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My engineering professors are very approachable and generally helpful, just be respectful and concise. There are too many gen ed courses taught by inadequate professors and TA's however

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The outcome of your career is not the school's responsibility, it is yours, as it should be.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: On campus safety is no issue at all. Off campus is questionable. The most prevalent criminal activity seems to be theft.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing options are limited because of the small campus size, and there are more bad dorms than good ones. Off campus housing is a good financial choice

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: With the experience I've had, Greek life is broad based and rather inviting, however there are always more radical outliers.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at Cincinnati are highly competitive and are generally well encouraged all around campus, varsity always seems like an unattainable dream, but there are always intramurals and club sports, and students are highly encouraged to start their own club if one doesn't exist for the sport

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Cincinnati has a great engineering program because of mandatory co-op. However, the learning environment can be relatively sink or swim and students generally must teach themselves, which can be rewarding or discouraging

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: On the actual campus, some professors are approachable and will listen. When you get into more progressive schools, I would say DAAP and CCM. (CCM) Professors are very self righteous and consider themselves such experts in their field that they make themselves unapproachable. They are also very progressive and closed minded. Because they push their own views so heavily and diminish any opposition, they assume the classroom/environment they are in are all like-minded individuals, which is not the case. This also alienates students with opposing opinions.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, depends on how the student deals with the college and what school at the college they attend.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As I've stated before, how the faculty refuses to address the excessive drug and alcohol abuse on the campus, supports a community where sexual assault is prevalent.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are very small, whether you have a double or quad, you won't have much space at all. Very little money has been spent on keeping the dormitories up to date, clean, technologically savvy, and aesthetically pleasing. With all this considered, the dining plan and room and board fees are extremely over priced.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I know sorority girls and all of them were/ are well known for how they dress and how drunk they got and the stupid things they did when they got drunk. The fraternity boys are almost always included in these stories.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics are highly valued on the campus. It's nice because we have athletes very talented at their sport but coaches and faculty will do anything to let them pass and have the grades to play, in lieu of providing them an honest education.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Drugs are rampant on the campus and there are a lot of public issues. The professors don't address the issues with excessive drug and alcohol use even when confronted with it. It shows a lack of interest for the well being of the students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
