You were a proud UC Bearcat in the midst of an unforgettable college experience. It all started with orientation where you were greeted with contagious Bearcat pride, and met the people you'd call classmates, friends, and co-workers. You wondered how you could find your place on a campus with so many people. Then you realized how contagious UC pride really is. Do you remember moving into the residence hall and living on your own for the first time? The stadium where you proudly cheered for the football team? The hangouts at MainStreet Starbucks and the late nights at Langsam Library? The first time you got a picture with the Bearcat (and freaked out a little when you did)? The friends you made and the groups you joined? And finally, do you remember hearing your name called to receive the diploma you pushed for all of those years?
Crazy as it is, all of these things led you to call this urban campus home.
Now you've hit another milestone in life...you're engaged! Where do I exchange vows? Where should I have the reception? Not to mention the rehearsal dinner! It's a lot to plan. But the most important part is being comfortable at your venue. You want a place with connections to you, your fiancé, your lives. Essentially, you're looking for home.
It's time to come back home to UC!
