University of Cincinnati Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (40)
I would recommend University of Cincinnati to very independently driven students. If you can organize and prioritize well then UC is for you. There isn't a lot of guidance from Financial Aid (OneStop) and you are left to your own devices many times to identify sources of grants/scholarships and loans. If you are able to understand and navigate the financial aspects of college then UC is for you.
I have really enjoyed my time at the University of Cincinnati. The teachers are fantastic and very easy to learn from and get along with. The classwork is challenging and really helps to prepare you for your future career. The University also helps you find work while you are in school which is super useful because you graduate with experience in your future career field.
As a science major, my classes are extremely difficult. Which was expected. My only real problem with the education quality is there were several poorly lectured general education classes I have had to take for my major - specifically Physiology and Biomechanics. Both are required for my major and the education provided I felt was poor. I did pass both courses with an "A" however it was basically presented in a sink or swim attitude by the instructors and I purchased additional texts to supplement the information not provided by the instructors. The transfer experience was stressful. Many classes were not initially transferred in and I spent many hours on the phone with records and my academic advisor until we hashed out an agreement for transferred courses. I have met some very thorough and informative instructors during my time at UC. All in all the completed coursework has left me prepared for my Graduate studies and that is probably the most important thing about my time spent at UC. I look forward to earning my Masters degree in Occupational Therapy.
University of Cincinnati is a great school that offers a variety of excellent majors. I'm graduating this semester with my undergraduate degree in Arabic Language and Culture. I'm also starting my master's degree in May at University of Cincinnati. It's a great school, very diverse, very accepting, with great reputation and beautiful campus.
I love all of the opportunities that The University of Cincinnati provides me. Because of their Masters 4+1 program, I can start working towards my graduate degree while I am still in my undergrad. Each professor that I have had while attending this school has made it their personal missions to give me the tools and knowledge I need to succeed. I am so happy and honored to be a Bearcat!
This program will place all students in both urban and suburban schools to get experience of teaching. There are so many resources to help them use and teach better. The diversity is very friendly there. All professors and supervisors are supportive.
The architecture program at the University of Cincinnati featured a co-op program. This helped students prepare for work after graduation by applying to and working for a different firm every other semester. I grew as a professional and gained experience that set my resume above other graduates who did not complete the co-op program.
University of Cincinnati was efficient in getting a degree and entering the world of greater education. I do not think the University of Cincinnati College of Allied Health Sciences is an ideal school for getting a bachelor's education without following it with a masters. I think UC has been great for a start in my career, but I think the bulk of my career education will be from my Master's degree that I am getting at a different school.
Attending the University of Cincinnati is the best decision I have ever made. The opportunities for student involvement are important for building character. The rigor of courses depends on your field of study and very across colleges. UC hold the most beautiful urban campus I have ever been on, and the area holds vast possibilities for lovers of the arts, including being home to the College Conservatory of Music, one of the most renown conservatories in the nation. Students have a large impact over the university, and it is clear that the administration has a vested interest in our success.
The University of Cincinnati, with its inner city environment, has many career opportunities for students. There are many internships and co-ops associated with the school. There is a large and growing number of clubs, activities, and other groups for on campus events and organizations and also for the Cincinnati community. Personally, I was involved in teacher assisting which allowed me to gain benefical networks with professors. There are many opportunities for undergraduate research in the field of Psychology. However, the inner city environment does come with a safety factor. The university does have a number of break ins and crime each year. Despite this, for a large campus I felt very close to the professors and students and my overall experience was one based on community and strive for quality education.
