As far as transportation, UC has a free shuttle service for the students and there is a route to downtown that runs later on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.

^-I am so glad I voted for that (the transit system by campus was a student ballot issue - pay like $10 more on tuition per quarter [out of the 1000s we were already being gouged in other words a drop in the bucket] and get a more functional transit system than SORTA). Its a real shame that there wasn't anything in Downtown and OTR when I was a student and could use it, at the very least its here now, and provides a good way to reduce the number of DUIs because they run it at around 3:00 am on weekends past most of the major Night Life areas.

It also came in handy on really cold days (I'd make sure to pass by the stops and if one pulled up I'd use it to get to class when I had to go from Corryville to Teachers Hall), and it looks like (ahead of the Cincy transit) they even have a mobile tracker so you don't have to wait too long in the cold for one either - just look up the times on a mobile device just like the CTA .

Last time I saw it was when I was in town for MPMF on Main Street - it was packed full of people.

How does the city compare to Chicago?

Hello, I moved to Chicago from Cincinnati a year and half ago and attend UC when I lived there. The good news for you is, that since you will attending collage you will meet plenty of ppl that know where to go and hang out. There are a lot of coffee shops, bars, restaurants and parks around clifton that you will access too. Over The Rhyne (area between Clifton and Downton) has been gentrifying and going back to its old roots. Thereare nice bars, restauratns and coffe shops there also and that area kind reminds me of some parts of Lincoln Park with the feel of of Wicker Park or Logan Square.

UC was a lot of fun for me (graduated in 2009), and I really encourage you to make it your choice! I actually miss Cincinnati and might return there in the near futureb ecause of lower cost of living, decent city life and the Cincinnati Reds.
