When Cincinnati Smart emerged, I knew exactly what was meant. I'm Cincinnati Smart

Cincinnati Smart is well rounded. 
Cincinnati Smart is culturally diverse.
Cincinnati Smart is powerful. 
Cincinnati Smart is vigorous. 
Cincinnati Smart is a leader.

I've taken advantage of every single opportunity this University has to offer- I've stayed in good academic standing, I've co-oped, I've studied abroad, I've been a RA to over 300+ students of the past 4 years, I've served on a government board, I've founded an organization (Black Business Student Association), I've been a mentor to many and I've even served in the Cincinnati community. 

This university has provided me with the experiences to do more than achieve academic success; I saw the tools UC offered me to change this campus; I took them and now that I'm on my way out, I have the tools, skills and knowledge to change the world.
