Hannah Pfaltzgraff - 2/28/2017
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015
"The University of Cincinnati is an excellent school and has prepared me not only for my career as a Certified Public Accountant and all the steps it took to get there, but also as a leader and an innovator. Every instructor I had as an accounting major was very passionate about their students learning and about the material itself. I was able to not only learn the material, but also understand what a real world career in accounting would be like from the instructors, from my peers, and most importantly from the co-op program offered at UC. I wish every program at every college offered the co-op program. It was by far the best decision because it not only helped me to network with other peers and local firms, but it enhanced my learning experience immensely. I cannot recommend the program enough! And I was lucky enough to be offered a job right out of college through the firm where I did my co-op with."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Degree: Physical Education
Graduation Year: 2015
"The University of Cincinnati as a whole was a fantastic place to drive personal growth. The Health Education program that I took part in however, lacked transparency in regards to the lack of earning potential. This was of no fault to the professors, they were great and helped me to really understand the sciences behind the human body but I felt that overall the program was lacking in terms of the quantity of those science based courses that truly contributed to the knowledge base that I would need in my professional field."

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019
"I am currently enrolled in an undergraduate program for Mechanical Engineering. All of the professors that I have had a very encouraging, willing to push you to your boundaries and challenge you. While here, I am also a student of ACCEND, Accelerated Engineering Degree, where I will be completing both my undergraduate and graduate degree simultaneously. I would not have considered this program to complete a Masters in Science if I did not have many wonderful professors that have pushed me to strive for excellence."

"The University of Cincinnati is a superb school. The quality of instruction surpasses many others and there are endless opportunities. The education you will receive prepares you for moving onto the next step of your life, whether that is a career, professional school, or graduate school. Outside of the classroom, the social life is amazing. There are so many clubs, social groups and activities to partake in. All the athletic events are free to students and the facilities are immaculate. The best of all, UC has a beautiful campus located in the heart of Cincinnati, one of the top growing cities in the United States. 10/10 would recommend."

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018
"The UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI has provided the upmost qualitative experiences for me as a student. Across the board, it is simply intangible to explain the opportunities UC provides. The medical network of TEAM members that UC facilitates strongly influences all majors within the medical field to understand the importance of how each major aims to work in union to form the best patient - attentive health care network. I never truly understood the value of patient care until I worked amongst people of all fields to facilitate the true meaning of health care. The major outcome I have learned at UC is that there is a process behind each and every patient. The care is not in the hand of one individual, but a team of envious professionals to accomplish the same goal. I wake up everyday with my passion in mind and not a day passes where I do not see myself working within the medical field."

"University of Cincinnati is a school that offers a diverse curriculum and student body. During my academic years attending UC I have encountered nothing short of enthusiastic and supportive staff. Both professors and academic advisors show that they care about your future and do what they can do make an impact in your life. The University is highly involved and connected with their student body through on campus events and athletics. The University of Cincinnati is also Military friendly for all of those who are serving, as well as, family members and spouses. A few negative aspects that should be considered is the recreational expenses along with the surrounding area of Cincinnati. Cincinnati is a fun area to explore, but the upkeep on keeping the streets clean could be improved. Although the University of Cincinnati attempts to maintain a safe campus, internal and external factors within the city of Cincinnati makes this a difficult task to accomplish. Overall, academically I would say that this school surpassed my prior experiences compared to other Universities. However, I would advise that future students visit the campus and explore the surrounding area prior to enrolling or even applying."

"The university of Cincinnati has all the things that a future student should desire in a big public school. if you want to take classes with 60 other students in large auditorium style classrooms- then the University is for you. If you decide that maybe you want smaller size class rooms so you can maximize learning, the university of Cincinnati also has several surrounding campuses that offer those small class sizes. The professors typically aim to help and most give extra credit. There are stores every where on campus and during the fall time during football season the campus lights up. If your looking for a community college then this school may not be for you, but if you want a step below Ohio State then the advisers at UC can get you started."
