Let’s join together in spirit to celebrate University of Cincinnati's Homecoming!
Though this year’s events will look a little different, we’re excited to celebrate UC Homecoming 2020 to the theme of “Juncta Juvant,” which translates to “Strength in Unity.” It’s UC’s motto and describes how and why we’re able to band together as Bearcats, innovate and move forward in the face of this year’s challenges.
We hope you’ll participate in the slate of virtual events and contests we’ve scheduled for UC College of Nursing students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends to drum up spirit for the ol' red and black. Follow along on our College of Nursing Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts the week of Sept. 28 to Oct. 3, share your photos using #CONStrengthinUnity and tag us to win prizes! (See contest details below.)
And, don't forget to cheer on your Bearcats on Saturday, Oct. 3, (time TBD) as they take on the University of South Florida for this year's Homecoming football game.
