You're Invited...

How do you pick which school is 'right for you'? There are 4,140 different colleges and universities in the United States alone, so you have a lot of options!

To me, the 2 most important things to consider when choosing a school are 1.) do they offer the program major I want? and 2.) does the campus 'fit' me?

Now it is possible to go to a school for a term or two or three to pick up your general education classes before transferring into the school you really want. But make sure that whichever school you pick has what you want and need or you need to pick another school. Next, take the time to visit each and every school that is on your radar screen of possibility to see which ones you like the best and to make sure they 'fit' you. If you like a lot of energy and activity around you, then you'll probably want to attend a larger campus. You'll also find available activities and events 24/7 and Freshman classes with hundreds of students. Others will prefer a campus with a more personal touch. If this is you, then UC Clermont or a community college setting would 'feel right'. You would still have the energy of 3,200 students around you and plenty of available activities on campus, but classes would be closer to 18-20 students each and your professors would actually know your name!

If you'd like to visit UC Clermont to 'check it out' for yourself, please stop by any Friday @ 10 a.m. in the Student Services Building - Room 100 (here's are directions: and I'd be happy to tell you about our connection to the University of Cincinnati, available academic programs, how to apply, financial aid as well as walk you around campus to see all we have to offer from outstanding faculty to current technology and free student support services.
