Quality of classes and teachers varied widely, itBrightJournalism
Quality of classes and teachers varied widely, it all rounded out to an average experience for me. The surrounding city has a lot to offer with some nice hidden gems. What really sucks about UC is the administration: you're just a moneybag to them. I developed a chronic illness while in school, and when I asked my counselor about withdrawing she said I would have to do it in person. Lucky me, I was too sick to go see my professors in person (or go to class in the first place). So I asked the registrar's office if there was another option, and they gave me virtually the same response: fill out this form, have your professors sign it, and bring it to OneStop. I repeatedly explained my situation to them and they ignored my condition. I contacted the bursar's office, accessibility services, and my professors to see if they could be of help, but once again, I couldn't get a straight answer. I felt like no one cared enough to actually help me. If you have a chronic illness or are disabled in any way, think twice about going here.

I took a different path to get toQuite BrightIndustrial Design
I took a different path to get to the University of Cincinnati, since I originally was at Ohio University and transferred. Compared to a smaller school like OU, the University of Cincinnati is honestly a dream come true for students who love a bigger city school. There are always tons of events going on and so much opportunity to get involved, the classes are fairly sized and so far my professors have all been outstanding. For freshmen worried that it's going to be "high school all over again", don't believe that for a second. The campus is huge and people are friendly and you can just do your own thing. If you aren't a huge partier there's no stigma against you at all. The campus is just alive in a way that I haven't seen at other schools, and I honestly am in love with it. You definitely get out of it what you put in, but I think that pretty much applies to most above-average colleges. Be proud to be a Bearcat!!

I found the graduate professors (MECH Engrg andMechanical Engineering
I found the graduate professors (MECH Engrg and Math) to be very helpful in working towards my mS and PhD degrees. Professors who on the undergraduate level (Prof Restemeyer for one) were very focused on what we learned and what we expected from the classes. The degrees have been very beneficial throughout my career.
