Representing UC in London

The Bearcats may have suffered a loss this past Saturday, but they were still supported by UC fans all the way in London! Local alumna, Lauren Kelly, hosted a game-watch at the Hippodrome in the heart of Leicester Square. Not only was there a great turnout, but they were able to enjoy some Cincinnati favorites, like Skyline, as they cheered on their favorite Cincinnati team.

It is always great to hear about UC alums getting together, but even better when they are showing their UC spirit thousands of miles away. A big thank you to Lauren and the proud alumni who joined her for this international game-watch.

UC Alums Celebrate #UCLove

Since they met as UC students, David and Kari Kolb thought it was only appropriate that they got married on UC’s campus at the Tangeman University Center years later. David and Kari met while working their way through college at the UC Campus Recreation Center.

“Because we met at UC, saying ‘I do’ right there in front of TUC really brought everything full circle,” said Kari.

They had a full-blown bearcat wedding! From the school colors donned on the bridesmaid dresses, to the table numbers being their favorite UC basketball players and a C-Paw ice luge, David and Kari showed their #UCLove on the best day of their lives. A bearcat bobble head was even given as favors to the guests.

David sends red roses, the same as her wedding bouquet, to Kari’s work every year to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This is another honor to their #UCLove. And, they said they also try to make the day very special for their two young daughters, who they refer to as future bearcats.

It is easy to say that David and Kari embody what it means to have #UCLove for each other and their alma mater. Check out other love stories and tell us what you love about UC on Twitter

#UCLove Stories

#UCLove has been part of so many lives over the years. So we thought we’d share some of our favorite UC Love Stories with you – our UC family!  

UC alums, Breanna and Todd Praechter, met while working on a service-filled trip with the UC student organization, Serve Beyond Cincinnati. They have been married since 2011.

Bob and Phyllis Favorite are proud UC alums who also met while attending UC in the 1970s. They now live in Pennsylvania but make it a point to support their alma mater where they fell in love.

After meeting in a mass communication class, Tom and Chris Carleton could not imagine a life without each other or UC. They admit that their social calendars will often coincide with UC’s.

Valentine’s Day is a special day to celebrate that special someone. We’re so happy that UC has impacted lives in such positive, heartfelt ways. Check out more stories and tell us what you love about UC on Twitter.
