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.
