A blog for students, by students.
In the spirit of the game tomorrow, here are some photos from a past Homecoming and Ring of Red Game!
It’s Bearcat Friday and campus is in spirit in Red & Black! Make sure to make it out (or watch the game on tv!) to support your Bearcats tomorrow as they take on Miami for Homecoming at Paul Brown Stadium!
No matter where you are in life, either a current student in college or getting ready to make that big decision, you need to be true to yourself.
These are some of the main years that we find out who we truly are. There are a lot of influences effecting our lives and we need to be able to take a step back and do what is true to ourselves.
Remember that there is nothing wrong with who you are and that it is your unique spark that makes you an asset. Always be yourself.
“Don’t you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can’t be exactly who you are.”
Meet Jazmyn Battie, a 4th year with a double-major in Psychology and Criminal Justice, who was also one of our SOLs (Student Orientation Leader’s) this past year!
With such a large influence on our incoming class during Orientation we asked what her favorite moment was during her time as a SOL. Although there were quite a few to pick from, her favorite was “Day One” of every Orientation session. “Meeting our future Bearcats and being one of the many people that interact with them was one of the best feelings in the world.”
For those that are interested in becoming a SOL, Jazmyn said that the biggest thing is to go into the process with an open mind. Accept the process and activities that are a part of the interview process, but not to the point that it would make you uncomfortable. You can gain a lot from your time as a SOL, and as she mentioned, “This experience is what you make out of it.”
The biggest challenge that she has faced, when it comes to her major, is a common one that a lot of students come across: Figuring out if the track that they are on is the route they want to take in the long run. She originally came to college to go to law school, but also has an interest in theatre and working with students from diverse backgrounds. While she is still going to attend law school and pursue her dream of becoming an attorney, this is a common struggle that most students go through. It helped that her favorite class, taught by the amazing Dr. Engel, was Introduction to Criminal Justice. The material that she was engaged in for that class has followed her throughout her collegiate career.
To finish up, especially with her experience as a SOL, we asked her what her advice is to incoming first year students. “My advice to incoming students would be to get involved your first year and jump out of your comfort zone. You are only in college for 4 to 5 years, give or take, and those years will fly by.” Make friends that will continue with you for the rest of your life. Stay focused and never forget the reason you came to college - to excel in everything you do.

The Western and Southern Open ATP World Tour Masters Tournament, a Cincinnati Tradition, was once again held this year.
The Bearcats were in full form last night against the Toledo Rockets for the Whiteout at Paul Brown Stadium. Festivities opened up a few hours before the game with tents and activities for everyone to enjoy.
With a final score of 58-34 over the Toledo, it was a proud day to be a Bearcat!
