The University of Cincinnati has a very inviting atmosphere and an upbeat city vibe. The night life is very good, and the restaurants nearby are reasonable in price and the food is delicious! Many of the professors are alright as far as the content that is being taught, but it is always a good idea for students to review professor ratings. The University of Cincinnati is full of different campus clubs, a variety of Greek life, and many other exciting student events. My overall experience as a young female college student at the University of Cincinnati were beneficial and progressive experiences that helped me prepare for the future. I really enjoy being a student at this university. This is a good college campus for students seeking an opportunity to comfortably thrive in the many academic fields of study offered there.

I am about to graduate from DAAP and I would rate their Fine Arts program average. I was lied to upon entry that there was an animation program (there is no such thing) and there is a horrible hierarchy between the Fine Arts majors and the other majors (Design, Architecture, Fashion) at the school. Some of my professors have been very supportive, but there is almost no support here for art that isn't in a traditional medium. If you make only digital art or you're interested in animation--you're out of luck!
I love attending the University of Cincinnati! I'm originally from Columbus so I decided to attend the University of Cincinnati in Fall of 2015. I love the diversity of the students and faculty! The campus is beautiful! The games are a blast! Also Over-the-Rhine, Downtown Cincinnati, and Kentucky is a 10 minute drive at the most! There are so many little shops, cafes, and local businesses to explore in Over-The-Rhine and Clifton, there's always a new adventure! It's great. On the flip side, the areas the border the university are a bit intimidating, especially to a college student. Avondale, Walnut Hills, and OTR tend to be high crime areas. The criminals see the students as "easy prey" to rob them for things like their phones, laptops and wallets. Because the city of Cincinnati is aware that crime can occur on campus, the university has taken the initiative of having their own police which does reduce the crime. Overall, I pretty safe on campus.
