The campus of the University is beautifully crafted and redesigned. The blueprints were staged by former Engineering Alumni. This significant mark on the campus is a great accomplishment and success story in its own for new students to be captivated by. The school tours are lead by selected honors students of the university who also mentor, guide, and inspire new students. The university has the highest number of students enrolled ever this year. The campus is centrally located to multiple apartment buildings and restaurants. The campus holds multiple job fairs, opportunity fairs, career progression panels, and other such organizations are well known to the community. The welcoming to freshmen, involvement, and connection building is very prominent, including sororities and fraternities, but also with sports, ROTC programs, and other events. Tutoring is included with tuition!

I absolutely love the University of Cincinnati! When you decide to come here, you won't regret it. Get ready for the best years of your life. The campus is diverse and full of wonderful people to meet. Most of the professors I have had here are fantastic and super helpful. In addition to the great faculty and staff, Bearcat Football games at Nippert Stadium, the stadium in the middle of campus, are so much fun! We also host FC Cincinnati, Cincinnati's new soccer league. Campus is always improving with new buildings being built and new student organizations being created. You will find everything you are looking for here, I know I did. These have been the best 4 years of my life and I'm looking forward to my fifth and final year here.
I love UC! I started my freshman year off as an Exploratory student. The Exploratory advisors were excellent and helped guide me to what I was really passionate about. I transferred into Health Education and the faculty in the program are amazing at keeping students informed and being there for students. UC has also provided me different ways to become involved through different club, hall governments, and different activities that allow me to socialize with other students.
