Alumni Celebration

Join us during Alumni Week (April 12-18) to recognize an esteemed group of Bearcats for their notable accomplishments. We’re going to “Paint the Town Red” in their honor. Literally. 

Get ready for a huge mural in downtown Cincinnati’s vibrant Over-the-Rhine district. Featuring 19 alumni, the painting will integrate personal shades of UC red our honorees are currently creating.

It’s our way of calling attention to their unique value and the impact made by our alma mater and her loyal children.
