Flashback Friday: Call for Entries!

As homecoming nears, you likely reminisce about your experiences at the University of Cincinnati. You might even pull out some old photos to share with other alumni, friends, and family.

Now you have a chance to share these photos with other alumni across the country. The University of Cincinnati Alumni Association is asking alumni to share their favorite UC memories and photos on the UC Alumni Association Facebook page. Each week, the alumni Facebook page will post a "Flashback Friday," providing alumni with a chance to reminisce about their alma mater. 

To submit a photo, go to the UC Alumni Association Facebook page and click the "message" button to send a message with your flashback photos. Please include a caption for the photo and your name and graduation year. Inappropriate photos will not be accepted or posted on the UC Alumni Association Facebook page. Read more about the UC Alumni Association's social media guidelines here. 

Submit your photos and let's flashback to great red and black memories!

Are you ready for fall?

Are you ready for some fall fun? Be sure to check out all the events happening this Fall for Bearcats. Here are a few highlighted events to make sure you do not miss them!

One of the biggest events this fall is homecoming weekend. Homecoming is always a great place to reconnect with fellow Bearcats and a great chance to be back on campus and cheer on the football team to a victory as they take on Connecticut. This year’s theme is “Once Upon a Homecoming” and it is taking place Oct. 18-19. There will be lots to see and do all weekend long. 

Another big opportunity for alumni to stay involved and reconnect this fall is through the #HottestCollegeInAmerica tour with President Santa Ono. Ono will be traveling to different cities throughout the country to meet alumni, prospective students, current co-op students, parents and donors. Make sure you check to see when he is coming to your city and do not miss the great opportunity to find out all the latest happenings at UC.

As always, the fall is filled with Bearcat football. Before most home games, the Myers Alumni Center will open four hours prior to kickoff for the Bearcats-Blitz pre-game festivities. It is considered the UC family’s biggest tailgate party. This is another great opportunity to reconnect with fellow Bearcats and cheer on the Bearcats! Everyone is always invited.

Don’t worry, if you cannot make a home game, there are always away game opportunities! Bearcats on the Road events will take place at two away games this coming fall. On Saturday, Oct. 5, Bearcats on the Road will be at the University of South Florida and again on Saturday, Nov. 23 , pre-game events will be held before the Houston game. 

This fall will be a busy one, but always a great chance for alumni to reconnect and make some new memories with UC. New events are always popping up so be sure to check the events calendar in the next few weeks.
