The college visit… We’ve done a few now as my oldest son progresses through his senior year of high school. This past week we visited the University of Cincinnati, an urban college with an appealing sense of community. The unusual and varied architecture alone make a walk through campus worthwhile.
The Bearcats, 6-0 this 2009 football season, play in a sunken stadium tucked into the middle of campus next to an impressive recreation facility. When athletic fields are not in use they are open to all students.
We had the added benefit of a personal tour with a freshman nephew. Being an honors student gained him a rather palatial penthouse suite rather than the usual cramped dorm room!
