| UC is not a student friendly university for undergrads. |
It's a great school with tons of potential, but that potential won't be realized until UC gets rid of all the assholes who work there.

| If you want your college experience to be memorable in a good way - WHICH YOU SHOULD - then seriously take a pass on UC. Just about everything at UC is half ass, but UC and Cincinnatians in general don't know this. When you finally realize who goes to UC it's more or less "Cincinnati's 13th Grade." Social circles revolve around Cincinnati area high schools, and in the Cincinnati mindset, high school is more important than college. UC is what Cincinnati HS kids do when their golden years are over and the next step in life is a Drees Home in Mason.UC is suffering from an enormous budget defecit and it shows in how "on-edge" UC administrators behave (they're all afriad of losing their jobs). UC is not a university that places students first. UC places the careers of it's administrators first, and students are left dealing with the riff-raff. Just pay your tuition and shut up and UC will love ya. |

| UC is definitely an experience. Just primarily a bad one. Campus is a one square mile concrete city in the middle of a demilitrized zone. The whole layout is a hodpodge of buildings built as if each was afterthought to the grand plan. An old school adage states UC = Under Construction, this was definitely true during my undergrad (2000-05). Half the campus was literally inaccesible to me my entire time there. The administration is also horribly inefficient. They raised our tuition rates the maximum allowable and fired numerous support staff from my department claiming that they were short on funds. All the while continuing on their building spree. Essentially the university wastes the funds it recieves from the state on these pointless construction projects instead of trying to improve the academic environment. Also unless you are going to a select few colleges (medicine,engineering,ccm, or DAAP) don't bother coming here. A UC degree is not going to exactly get you noticed in any other major and even the ones mentioned as relatively good are decidely mid-tier in my opinion. Crime is also a serious problem since the university is in the middle of a ghetto.|
P.S. This is not some exaggeration. If you seriously want to attend UC I would definitely see it in person (don't take the guided tour) beofre choosing.
