University of Cincinnati Reviews
The university of Cincinnati has excellent programs. UC is unique and extremely helpful because they have an exploratory studies program. Not everyone knows what they want to do when the graduate high school and it can be scary. This program, personally, has helped me explore majors and finally figure out what I want to do the rest of my life! They admit thousands of students per year which really keeps you on top of your game to stay competitive with other students. The campus is beautiful but there is hills everywhere! It has definitely helped me keep off the "freshman 15" though. Word of advice though, get involved because they have tons of clubs and groups to join- 40,000 people can feel pretty lonely if you don't put yourself out there.
UC has multiple programs that attract a diverse crowd, differing in mindset, educational background, interests, and personality. The colleges and university are liberal in mindset, have recently designated themselves as tobacco-free campuses, offer multiple student housing opportunities, offer payment plans, and have professors who are always ready to help when asked. The Blue Ash campus even has free tutoring in the their writing and math labs (which helped me pass statistics)! I completed my undergraduate degree at UC and I plan to go back to complete my graduate degree. It is close to home and affordable.
The campus is absolutely beautiful! Most people around campus are very nice and quite helpful. The amount of organizations on campus is staggering, there's a high chance that you can find an organization to fit you interests, and if not, you can create one! One thing that I would change about UC is the connectivity. I find often that you don't really get to meet people outside of you bubble (your specific college/major or outside of any organization that you choose).
