Meet Michael Flanagan, a 5th year in Civil Engineering, who has some advice for incoming students.
Fun Fact: All of his siblings, including himself, graduated as valedictorians from their high school! To continue on with this accomplishment, Michael has been extremely involved in the University of Cincinnati’s Honors Program. As he puts it, “Honors doesn’t make my life here harder, it simply makes it much more unique and enriching than it would be otherwise.”
The Honors Program, an experience that is not classroom based, has given him the opportunity to expand his horizons through leadership development and study abroad. This past Spring, through his honors seminar The Roman Experience, the class took a 10 day trip to Rome! Coming from a student who can’t stand being bored, he mentions that the Honors Program has opened doorways to experiences he may not have been able to experience after college.
His biggest advice to incoming students is to “get involved on campus, but slowly.” If you get involved with too many activities too fast you won’t get the full experience out of them. Don’t be afraid to quit a group you don’t enjoy so you have time to invest in the ones that are truly right for you!

Wordy Wednesday:
As you are moving into your home away from home in the residence halls keep in mind that you can make friends in the most unexpected places.
Some of you will come to college with friends from your high school and some of you will move into UC not knowing a single soul. With that being said, no matter where you meet, all your friends start off as strangers. You aren’t alone.
Find your friends, branch out, and realize that some of those strangers around you are about to become your best friends in college!
