Push Forward Toolkit


  • Graduating high school seniors, rising sophomores and juniors.
  • Many prospective students are uncertain of their future and are struggling with the idea that a hybrid or virtual college experience will be as good as an on-campus experience. 
  • Many future Bearcats are ready and willing to grow—becoming confident, self-made and courageous, despite not arriving that way their freshman year.


What should they think?

  • UC is a welcoming environment supporting those who want to build things better.
  • This is my time to make my mark, and there’s no better place to do that than at UC.
  • “The world can’t wait to see what we can do.” 


What should they feel?

  • Inspired and empowered to act, change and improve
  • Excited and encouraged to attend UC



  • Courageous, Supportive, Gritty, Fearless
  • Optimistic, Excellent, Serious, Uplifting, Bold



Push. Forward.

UC Bearcats always push the limits of what’s possible, letting nothing stop them on their way to create a better tomorrow, every day.

When you’re a UC Bearcat, you push forward. Push boundaries. Push progress.

You’re forward thinking. Forward looking. Forward moving.

Never stopping and never settling.

You. Push. Forward.
