Brian Barney

Although Brian has been on campus for a short time, he already has a portfolio rivaling some seniors. As a Cincinnatus Presidential Scholar and rising star on our varsity track and field team, this Chicago area native has not wasted any time finding ways to enhance his UC experience. In addition to his prowess on the field and in the classroom, Brian has also found numerous ways to take advantage of University Honors offerings.

His first experience took place over winter break at the LeaderShape Institute, a weeklong intensive leadership institute that has laid the groundwork for future involvement. As Brian puts it, “University Honors gives me the chance to work on the tools I need to be successful professionally… and, of course, registering for classes early!” These experiences have also helped Brian prepare for his most recent endeavor, mentoring a high school freshman in conjunction with the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative. Although Brian is just beginning his time at UC, his future plans include attending graduate school to study physical therapy.
