Success Stories

Jen Schuster, College of Business, Lindner Honors-PLUS, 2008 (BBA, Finance, Accounting), 2009 (MS, Accounting)

"I take great pride in the education and experiences I received at the University of Cincinnati. As a Lindner Honors-PLUS student, I met influential business leaders, traveled the world, studied international business practices and culture and had co-op assignments at one of the world’s renowned medical centers

Those experiences were made possible by the generosity of others, and I feel compelled to pay it forward by giving future students similar opportunities. When I started my career, I wanted to make sure giving back was a priority. I was so excited to learn that the life insurance giving option turned the donation I could afford today into scholarship support for future business leaders!”


Joe Clase, College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP), 2003

“When I was a student at UC, I felt so many others were giving back to provide me with an opportunity to learn.  As a student, ambassador and employee of DAAP, I want the college resources that served me so well to be available for future UC students.

Giving back through life insurance provides me with an opportunity to  leave my legacy and help shape future leaders at UC. I hope it allows students to have the same experiences I had, and hopefully even better; opportunities are definitely priceless. I feel like even giving a small amount provides a long lasting impact for students who would not have that support otherwise. And knowing that the gifts I make today will multiply in the future is a great feeling!”
