University of Cincinnati Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (20)
Very disorganized program and confusion among staff about who is responsible for what. Students were left to figure a lot of things out on their own. I have heard this from others who were in the program with me and there unfortunately isn't one student from our cohort who would recommend the program to friends.
I completed my Masters Degree through their online program, so I have no insight on campus life, etc. However, I enjoyed working with and learning from all of my professors that I encountered through my program. Even though it was online, there was good communication and great learning opportunities. Overall, the University of Cincinnati is a great college.
Very diverse, unique learning experience. I am so glad that I went to a school like UC.
UC business is a great college only if you are willing to put time and effort in it, the faculty there is very well networked and knowledgeable.
UC is a great school that allows you to create the innovations you imagine.
This college is ideal because of its location near an active and booming city, and its diversity of programs. If you need to do internships or co-ops for graduation, or solely because you have interest, the surrounding city has plenty of opportunities, and many of these businesses have experience taking on interns/co-ops. While the university itself may seem like it isn't a stand-out, it has many nationally-recognized schools and programs, such as the Conservatory of Music and the School of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning--among others. Hands down, the best part of my experience and education at the University of Cincinnati was the co-operative program. U.C. was one of the pioneers of this program, and many universities still don't have such a program in place. Its in-state tuition also can't be beat. Due to its plentiful and reasonable off-campus and on-campus housing, as well its beautiful, expansive campus, U.C. should not be overlooked.
The online distance learning program is amazing. It is a wonderful option for the nontraditional student. The professors are experts in their area and encourage/facilitate online learning and dialogue. Professors get back to you quickly and are easy to with. It is easy to post and submit assigments through the Blackboard feature on the UC website. Group work is even completed online with other students in your class.
The Social Work program at UC was poorly run, did not challenge students, and did not adequately teach students to prepare for the job field.
Come to class prepared, if you have any questions go directly to the professor as soon as possible. Go to the professor's office hour(s), they like to know that you care enough to make an effort to seek help/bounce ideas off of them. Stay on your professor's good side, they can write you recommendation letters and if they remember you as a good student they will write you a recommendation that will help you tremendously. Find a good internship/co-op! Ask your professor's in your major classes where they recommend you go for an internship.
It's a fun and diverse college experience. You can really pick what you want to get involved in and there are lots of different communities (athletics, honors, Greek life, arts, etc.)
