UC is in the middle of its' Bicentennial year.

The new year will start with two new buildings on campus: the Carl H. Lindner College of Business and the College of Allied Health Sciences.

The buildings were designed to feature increased academic and collaborative space.

UC's Early IT Program is expanding from 30 high school students in 2017 to an expected 2,000 participants this year.

The first high school participants in the program are beginning full time at UC this fall.

Students participating in the program will be given the opportunity to skip their freshman year at UC by completing six IT classes and three other college-level classes. Those students are automatically accepted to UC as sophomore IT majors.
