Fearless Project Creator to Speak about Series for LGBT History Month on Oct. 15 and Oct. 16

If you’ve been on our campus at all and have walked through our student union (Tangeman University Center) or the Recreation Center you have seen some of the posters up for The Fearless Project. 

If you are visiting campus between October 20th-October 24th you will even be able to get a glimpse of the project inside of the visitors center of admissions as well!

Find out more information about The Fearless Project here too!

OCTOBER 17TH OPEN HOUSE:

Last Friday we had one of our spectacular Open Houses where we had over 1500+ prospective students on campus. Each of these events gives you an opportunity to get a campus tour, have an admissions presentation, talk to financial aid representatives, meet different organizations, talk specifically to the college that houses the major you’re interested in, see residence halls, and now have the opportunity to be a part of a competition!

This initiative was launched over the summer where students have the opportunity to win UC PRIZES while taking creative photos on their campus tour during the Open House! Pictured above are some of the winning photos, along with some of the submissions in general, for the competition!

As always, we are proud to see the kinds of students that could be future Bearcats!

If you are interested in participating and learning more about UC check out the other two Open Houses this year on October 31 and November 14th here: http://admissions.uc.edu/visit/openhouse/fall.html

Last weekend UC Students traveled to Miami to watch the Bearcats battle it out in the Sun Life Stadium. Although we suffered a loss, the fact that we had such dedicated Bearcats Fans travel all the way there and back shows that no matter what we have pride in our team.

This is easily just another example of being a proud Bearcat and the phenomenal experiences that students can be involved in.

Shoutout to RallyCats & Student Government for putting the trip together!

Wordy Wednesday:
The final test dates for the ACT and SAT that we are accepting for the December 1st deadline (last ones in October!) are coming up.
Test scores are an important aspect to the admissions process and your application. They will be a strong part of what we review, but we are also a part of a holistic review process.
What that means is that we are looking at all aspects of the application in whole. That includes the application, test scores, GPA, essays, recommendation letters, and everything else that they submit. We do not have set minimums for the University of Cincinnati and thus are looking for the most well-rounded students.
Thus, if you aren’t the strongest test-taker do not let that discourage you from applying to UC! As the quote above says, “Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Just because taking a test is not your strongest asset does NOT mean that you are stupid and does NOT mean that you should give up! We look at the application in a holistic fashion because we understand that there is something special in everyone.

Meet Trevor Smith, a 4th year in Political Science and Economics, who has gained a multitude of experience during his time at UC.
One of things that he is involved in is Student Government with a role of helping UC colleges develop and grow. Each college tribunal, students that are the highest collegiate form of government for each college, have a budget that they are allocated that help with “programs, initiatives, student development, and college performance.” From his position as chair on the Tribunal Leadership Council, he has seen a tremendous amount of retention, development, and growth form the leaders of the tribunals. One of his main roles is to help each tribunal partner with each other and with the Undergraduate Student Senate. One example of this is the College of Allied Health Science Tribunal connecting with the College of Nursing Tribunal to put on a “Dinner in the Dark” to raise awareness for the visually impaired individuals at UC and in Cincinnati.
Outside of Student Government he has also had the opportunity to work for the Division of Professional Practice and in the US Attorney’s Office. For Professional Practice he was the Program Coordination Intern and sat on the Committee for Academic Internship Manager and Faculty Instructor. During his time there he helped develop 12 online training modules to help future students on their academic internship and managed course logistics. He also helped out as the Media Management Intern to help develop a social marketing initiative to increase enrollment. He is currently working as a student intern the the Attorney’s Office to research statistics for trial prepping and case discoveries for 20 US Attorneys.
Trevor is a great example of what all you can accomplish with the connections and opportunities that UC has to offer its students. If you have the drive to get out there into the world then UC has the pathways to get you to your goals. As he quoted Ben Franklin for his advice to incoming first years, “Never put off for tomorrow what you can do today!”
