"The University of Cincinnati is an excellent school for such a transitional period in someone's life. The campus is centralized, so classes aren't spread out which makes it a convenient place to live. It's in the suburbs of Cincinnati, in a neighborhood called Clifton which is on the upswing. Recently the university has taken a much more intense stance on campus safety, which has helped me and many others who are from out-of-state become more comfortable in a new place. As a student of the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences, I have been exposed to opportunities from being an ambassador, a tutor, and tour guide. The degree program is comprehensive, and secular. I have a knowledge of not just strict academia-loaded political science, but through unique courses offered I have met Jerry Springer (former mayor) and delegate candidates and utilized computer statistics in ways I never imagined that were relevant to my degree. Through a broad range of classes, and an even wider outside life, UC has provided me the drive and skills needed to attend graduate school."

"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."

Jessica Rubens - 3/12/2016
Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2017
"My program is a very unique program. It allows me to get a one year Graduate Certificate in Jewish Studies. It works very closely with a Rabbinical School across the street, allowing for usage of their research materials and their campus. The program is intensive, being a one year program, but they set you up for success by having access to Faculty, Staff, and Career support."

"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."
