Larry Elsasser Memorial Scholarship
Why Larry Elsasser?
A well-known Bearcat alum, Larry Elsasser, Ed ’65, MEd ’73, served as a UC employee for 35 years. For most of those years, Larry served as the director of Tangeman University Center.
In 1961, Elsasser was recruited to play baseball and basketball. Although baseball was his passion, he had a memorable basketball career, playing guard when UC defeated Ohio State in 1962 for the NCAA championship. After graduation, he played professional baseball for the Kansas City Athletics, the forerunner to the Oakland A’s. He later became a Cincinnati Public school teacher, then a math teacher at Raymond Walters College, where he also worked as assistant director of the Campus Center. In 1970, he transferred to the Uptown Campus as assistant director of Tangeman University Center, where he became director in 1976. Larry retired in 2005.
Larry’s commitment to the university and to the students at UC was always professional and enthusiastic. With Larry’s passing in 2010, his colleagues and friends at the university established a scholarship in his name to recognize UC students, who also serve the university as student employees.

Student Housing Assistant,
Housing & Food Services
“My experience working for the University of Cincinnati Housing and Food Services has been one of the most exceptional, encouraging, and pleasurable job experiences I have ever had. Thousands of first year students apply for housing every year and it has been an honor to have such a huge role in their first year experience. Working for this office has given me the opportunity to help with the transition from high school to UC a smooth process by easing nervous parents and calming anxious students. I have met/worked with so many wonderful people and I wouldn't want to work for any other department here at UC."
Student Sales Associate,
“I love working at the University of Cincinnati Bookstores. It is a wonderful atmosphere with supportive management!"
Desk Assistant, Residence Life
“You get to pick the hours you work at the beginning of each semester after you get all your class times, so no worries with work conflicting with school. The biggest perk for me was definitely living in the building I work in. Even if you don't live in the same building you work in, your job will be on campus, so you don't have to deal with the hassle of driving far to get to work.”
Call Center Assistant,
"I like working in the call center because I get to help people and meet other students who I wouldn't normally see on campus. I also have people who I know will support me if I am having a rough day. In parking services you can meet a lot of people and make many new friends. Parking services is also very inclusive and has a diverse staff. "
"I had a great opportunity working at PNC as a Student Ambassador during the Summer of 2016 and I had an amazing experience. It opened me up to the banking world, gave me a chance to meet extraordinary new people and work with fellow UC students.
The 4 month period taught me a lot about customer service, personal finance, banking and consumer psychology. If you are a finance student, go for it. Even if not, go for it! You’ll learn a lot!"
Student Marketing Assistant,
Campus Services Marketing
“Working as a part of the Campus Services Marketing team at UC has provided me with the strongest foundation on which to grow, both professionally and personally. During my four semesters as a part of the team, I was encouraged to take on a wide breadth of projects, ranging from social media and website management to copy writing and analytic reports. The staff at Campus Services Marketing is second-to-none, constantly making themselves available to help and support me in whatever way possible. The real-world experience I gained and skills I developed as a part of the Campus Services team continues to benefit me to this day, and I couldn't think of a better place to work during my time in college."

Read more about Veronica and Colin Expand
Veronica Boyd returned to school as a non-traditional student and single parent in order to study the Biology of Animals. She works in the UC gecko lab, studying their color vision abilities. She particularly enjoys this student employee position because no harm comes to the geckos in their lab. Veronica states, “The value I have received through my employment at the University of Cincinnati is the ability to work in a lab setting with animals and learn different things about them. I work in the gecko lab and thoroughly enjoy taking care of them.” The experiments she runs are simple food reward tests for choosing the correct colored dot. Veronica says that her “career goals are to work with animals to help conserve and protect them.” She would like to work at a zoo with conservation efforts or work for a wildlife protection agency.
Colin Barge began working at the University of Cincinnati’s MainStreet Connection Center in June 2012. Since then Colin says that he has learned so much more about UC than he imagined possible. Growing up in a small non-diverse community, UC was an eye opening experience for Colin. He has learned skills that he will use the rest of his life such as how to speak clearly, and be patient with customers. Colin says, “The best part of being employed on campus is getting to connect with the students, faculty, and staff every day. Every day I get asked hundreds of questions, but my favorite is when an alumni asks for a map and says something along the lines of “Nothing looks the same as when I was here!” It is very special to get to see that sparkle in their eye that many incoming freshman get in awe of all the different architecture on campus.” This reminds Colin that UC's campus is ever-changing, and always improving. Colin is proud to call himself a Bearcat.
"As someone who has funded the majority of my education myself, this scholarship was a huge help. It brought peace of mind knowing that I would not have to take out a loan for Spring semester. This scholarship allowed me to focus more on my studies since I was not worried about my finances and I am so thankful for that." -Colin Barge
