Bearcats, unite for 'UC Day of Caring'

Stay connected during COVID-19

The UC community is coming together to care for each other during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even during this national crisis, we’re seeing #BearcatsGive hope and inspiration to each other every day.  

Here are 9 ways for Bearcats to connect and give back. 

  1. Take a moment to thank a Bearcat who’s been doing their part to help you or others recently. 

  2. Post a photo, video or written message on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram celebrating your fellow Bearcat’s act of caring and use #BearcatsGive. Let’s spread hope and inspiration to Bearcats everywhere. See the collection of messages in real time here.

  3. Take our #BearcatsGive Instagram quiz and share it to your stories.  

  4. Create something beautiful. We have a list of fun Bearcat activities – coloring pages, puzzles and more – to keep your family entertained while staying home.  

  5. Share your UC pride. Download some new wallpapers for your phone or desktop or use them as backgrounds during your next Zoom call.   

  6. Missing campus this spring? Take a virtual tour of UC’s main campus.  

  7. Check out online performances by the UC College-Conservatory of Music on YouTube.

  8. Purchase a “Strength in Unity” shirt from UC Health and Cincy Shirts. Portions of these t-shirt sale proceeds will benefit the YMCA of Cincinnati Emergency Response Fund. 
  9. Donate to the UC Student Emergency Fund – it’s our way of helping students negatively affected by the pandemic.

From the entire UC family, thank you. Let’s continue taking care of each other, Bearcats.
