A Note from
the President...

Cory Sims, COB '11

Happy New Year, UC Young Professionals! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season and is still on track with their New Year's Resolutions. The UCYPs have a very busy first quarter planned and we hope you can join us for one of our social, community service, or professional events. The group saw amazing growth in 2013, featuring such events as our second annual Keeneland trip in April, volunteering at Matthew 25 Ministries, a first-time home-buyer's clinic, and several social gatherings to network with fellow Bearcats.

I believe 2014 will be an even bigger year for the YP group, building on our motto of getting UCYPs Informed, Engaged and Connected. We have a professional and social event on Feb. 6; Interim Athletic Director Desiree Reed-Francois will speak to the group, then we'll head to Fifth Third Arena to cheer on the Bearcats vs UCONN. In addition, we have a great volunteering opportunity with Relay for Life on UC's campus in April, as well as our annual trip to Keeneland.

So check out all the details below and please mark your calendar. Register early...hope to see you soon! Go Bearcats!

UCYP Night on Broadway: The Book of Mormon
Our first foray into the Cincinnati Arts Community was a success as we welcomed 40 Bearcats to a January showing of The Book of Mormon. The evening kicked off with drinks and hors d'oeuvres in Igby's private party room. After having the chance to network with other Bearcats over a few cocktails, the group headed to the Aronoff Center to enjoy the show. The final curtain was met with resounding applause, and we look forward to expanding our Arts events in the future.
