"A cool aspect would be that the campus is sort of like a bubble in the middle of a very urban area. So even though campus is small you are still 5-10 minutes from downtown Cincinnati which has so much to do. There are tons of cool places to shop and eat along the Ohio river with really pretty views! So I'd say having the best if both worlds there is a plus!"

"The thing that is really big here is basketball, and the student section at the games . People pretty much go insane just to get basketball tickets. So anything about that is pretty much what we are known for."

"The housing is a lottery system which is kinda crappy if you get a bad number but the actual residence halls are very nice. All of the dorms on campus besides one have private bathrooms (no community style stalls or showers), and we have a cleaning service that comes in each week to clean for us which is super nice! There are a lot of options for where to live, and we are required to live on campus for 2 years. I think I would want to anyway cause I like being in a central location and the options on campus are really nice."

Hoff Dining Hall

"I actually really really love the dining hall food. Everything is always fresh and there are tons of options. We have a salad bar, main line, sandwich line, pasta line, pizza bar, burger line, just tons of options and luckily the wide variety hasn’t made me grow tired of it yet. The cafeteria also puts on different events like thanksgiving and Christmas fancy dinners which is always really fun and super good food."

"The social life is kinda hard to describe. For me, my team is my social life cause its who I am around. But, I would say that the overall vibe on campus is very very friendly and welcoming. There is no greek life, which actually I love because there are no cliques and everyone is just equal.
