Student & Graduate Reviews (52)
The Key is keep a 3.2 GPA no matter what is your major, every opportunity rotates around this GPA value from paid Co-Op to internship. UC has so much potential and development going on that by the time you ll get there you will find yourself in a TOP school In U.S.A
I like that UC has roots in the Ohio and Kentucky area because that is where my family is from and where I plan to have my career. However, from my personal experience, the school wasn't that welcoming or helpful for students that commute or, lately, first generation college students. This shows with the fact that black students make up only 8% of the campus and other non international minorities even less.
I love the psychology program at UC. The professors are very passionate about what they do, and are easily accessible. My advisor is also very helpful, and I am looking into going to graduate school at UC for a masters in psychology. Overall, UC is a fantastic and diverse campus.
The University of Cincinnati College of Allied Health Sciences has given me a great educational experience. I have learned about many different allied health professions while gaining hands-on experience in the rehabilitation science labs, and working with professors who have real world experience both with patient care, and research. Hearing their enthusiasm in the individual fields of study makes me excited to start my career. The professors I have worked with so far have opened my eyes to many opportunities that I may be able to take advantage of moving forward with my graduate school endeavors.
The University of Cincinnati is a located in a student-oriented part of Cincinnati, only minutes from downtown. The campus is architecturally modern and beautiful. Great efforts have been put forth to provide ample green space within the urban atmosphere. The people are friendly and the spirits are high between the University's football and basketball team and the Minor League Soccer team, FC Cincinnati, that plays on UC's field. The best part about UC is, however, the co-op program. The University of Cincinnati established the cooperative education program in 1906 and since then has established great relations with companies within the Greater Cincinnati area and beyond. It is mandatory for engineering, DAAP (Architecture, Art History, Fashion Design, Fine Art) and some business majors, and allows students to get ahead of their peers by fitting real-world, professional experiences into their undergraduate curriculum. This program allowed me to pay for over half of my tuition and living expenses! Other schools may have adapted the co-op program, but UC has the connections and reputation to get you to your dream job. Go Bearcats!!
UC was very helpful in all phases. I received tutoring when needed and they have plenty of labs to choose from if you're struggling with course work. Resume assistance, employment opportunities and easy access to professors after hours were also benefits. My only gripe is that there aren't many perks outside of school for graduates. For example, I have to pay full price for tickets to basketball games. They should offer one free football/basketball a year for grads.
UC has a robust psychology program with a lot of very good faculty. I learned much from my classes, as well as the two research labs that I worked in. Being a teaching assistant was another great opportunity to learn, both about the material I had taken before and the process of grading/preparing class documents/lecturing/etc. A research 1 institution such as UC makes a great choice if an applicant intends to study in a STEM program. I recommend UC because of the faculty strength, diversity, transportation access, and leadership. I do not however think that the area is very safe at all.
Academically, UC has nonetheless prepared me for the demanding course load that graduate school will bring me. But it has also prepared me for success beyond assignments and exams; UC has taught me valuable life lessons that will prepare me for success in life in general. These lessons are beyond what has been taught in the classroom, as I have gained experience through my coursework, social life, and extracurricular activities that will act as catalysts for success in my future. The pre-physical therapy program offers hands-on learning and numerous opportunities to get involved with the community. UC goes beyond the textbook and prepares individuals for real-world situations.
University of Cincinnati is a good school but can be better. I wish i was given more opportunities regarding financial aid and the proper steps to help pay for school. My advisers could have been better and gave me more information rather than just assisting with class scheduling. I wish they were more invested in student's so they could better advise students. There were multiple times where i had to seek a lot of information on my own because my adviser was not knowledgeable or able to keep me on the necessary track for my major.
The University of Cincinnati is a great school. I have had many opportunities to become involved on campus and improve my professional skills. Involvement in your University is important. I have had the opportunity to work on campus as a Head Resident Advisor which allows me to have a positive impact and become a role model for freshman and upperclassman; joined an organization called HealthCats which allows me to volunteer at different camps and learn more about my major; and joined a organization called Connections Mentoring, which places you with a mentor in your desired career field. All these opportunities has developed my networking skills and improved my professionalism! I am happy to have had the experiences I did at UC and if you are looking for a school that will push you to develop yourself-- UC is where to go.
