Cincinnati is known as the "Queen City" and is well deserving of that name. Students enjoy all of the cultural, recreational and social benefits of a major metropolitan area which still is able to offer reasonable prices.
Cincinnati is noted for its activities: opera, symphony, theater, museums, planetarium, libraries, universities and period architecture. Cincinnati also boasts professional sports teams and outstanding university sports teams which often participate in national tournaments. Xavier University, the University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University, the College of Mt. St. Joseph, and Miami University are all within close proximity. Students can enjoy other activities in the Cincinnati area, including fishing, horse racing, river and lake sports, camping, skating and skiing.
Cincinnati is the home of various riverboats, which offer an unusual dimension to local residents, as do the Cincinnati Zoo, Paramount's Kings Island Amusement Park, and the many shopping malls and downtown department stores. Whether it is Eden Park with its Playhouse Theatre, Art Museum, and Krohn Conservatory, whether it is Mount Adams and its Bohemian lifestyle and specialty shops, whether it is the downtown with many stores, professional sports, restaurants, or whether it is the outstanding colleges and universities, the City of Cincinnati has them all to offer.
