Notes

Megan Daumeyer is a Nursing Major at UC who also plays for our Rugby Team.
When it comes to Rugby she says that she doesn’t have an overall favorite moment, but more cherishes the multiple small moments that makes her love the sport and her team. Even though the Nash Bash over Spring Break was mentioned as one of her more favorite tournaments, “having a group of people I know I can count on no matter if we’re best of friends or people that rub each other the wrong way sometimes, is a really comforting feeling.”
Her biggest advice to anyone interested in becoming a part of the Rugby Team is to keep a very open mind about the sport. Most people are quite tentative about such a physical sport that most have not played before. It’s always worth it to come out to a practice and give it a shot if you have some interest though. They will let you jump right in and “Tackling does not hurt nearly as much as you would think.”
Still, Rugby is not the only thing that Megan is doing at UC. Besides having a job outside of Rugby, Megan also is a dedicated Nursing student. To her, “School always comes first, but I try to get things done ahead of time so I have time to make practice.” Although she has missed some practices to make it work, “It is so worth it, I am doing everything I can to stay involved in both.”
As she emphasized, life in college is all about prioritizing and time management. Once you have your heart set on something you can create a plan and achieve it. College is about exploring and finding what you love, and that is something that Megan has easily done.

University of Cincinnati vs. Ohio State University

This past weekend the Bearcats took a trip to Columbus to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes after eight long years. While we felt our first loss this season against them, there was still an immense amount of pride that came from every single Bearcat that was in Columbus that night. Whether it was us making the first touchdown of the game in less than two minutes or standing strong together at the end of the game the Bearcats stood together. 

No matter where you looked on Saturday around the Ohio State Campus you saw the rival teams hanging out together to celebrate the game.

Although we were not victorious I have no doubt in my mind that all of the Bearcats Fans that traveled back from Columbus this weekend came back with the same amount of pride they went there with, if not more.

As always, we stand first and last for old UC!

Nearly Naked Mile 2014

Last week, the Cincinnatus Honorary Society hosted the Nearly Naked Mile - a fundraiser on campus around Homecoming. The event entails a mile-long lap around campus to help raise money for St. Vincent DePaul.

This year’s event had over 400 participants, received over 100 t-shirts to donate to St.Vincent, and raised over $1,500 for them as well!

The Nearly Naked Mile started back in 2009 and has been a giant success ever since. It is a great way to raise money, be active, and celebrate the Fall weather with the beauty of campus. Every year the event sees some hilarious outfits as well, so it is definitely worth checking out!

Last week we had the Food Drive vs. Miami University that was tied into our Homecoming Game and Festivities. 
Not only were we able to come out victorious for our Homecoming Game we managed to come out ahead in the MU vs. UC Food Race.
Overall, the most exciting part about this is how much both universities raised for the Freestore Food Bank and the Shared Harvest Foodbank! Fans were able to donate non-perishable foods at the game but many people also donated money that made an even larger impact for those in need.
If you still want to help out you can contribute to the cause for a limited time here!

“I’m not telling you it is going to be easy — I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it.” — Art Williams

Wordy Wednesday:
Just as Art Williams said, college will not be the easiest thing that you do in your life - but it is going to be worth it. Between your education, the skills you gain, the friends you make, and the memories that you will never forget, attending college is going to be worth it if you make the most if it.
Our entire life is full of challenges, so find the challenge that is going to better yourself. Don’t be afraid to try something new and always know that a little fear can be a good thing. If you aren’t taking chances every once in a while then you aren’t growing.
