Lindner College of Business Associate Dean speaks about the first day of class

Local media speak with Jaime Windeler, PhD, about the incoming class

Cincinnati-area television stations visited the Carl H. Lindner College of Business early Monday morning to document the first day of fall semester classes at the University of Cincinnati.

Jaime Windeler, PhD, Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs & Student Experience, interviewed with local stations WLWT, FOX 19 and Local 12 in the Johnson Investment Counsel Investment Lab.

Chief among the topics was Lindner’s largest and most diverse first-year class in the college’s history. First-year students received a taste of the Lindner experience during College Day on Friday, when they met with student PACE leaders and professors, found their classrooms and gained an understanding of learning communities across the college.

“Our incoming freshmen are really excited to be on campus,” Windeler told Local 12.

UC’s fourth-ranked co-op program was also a popular subject. Last year, Lindner students who were interning or on co-op full-time earned an average salary of $10,800 per semester. And 90% of Lindner students in a full- or part-time co-op secured full-time employment within three months of graduation.

“Students at UC earn $75 million annually co-oping,” Windeler said to Local 12. “And they go all over the planet to some of the best companies in the world. We’re very proud of that as our identity.”
