Personal Reflections

I would definitely consider attending the University of Cincinnati. The co-op opportunities are endless and this would allow me to get good work experience as well as the schooling in class that I need. I also could make a lot of money during my co-ops and also most likely earn a job after I graduate with the same company. Also, it is not very expensive, and I would earn goof scholarship money as well. The campus is also beautiful, and they have good sports teams, and the University of Location is not too far away.
