Golden Bearcats

The University of Cincinnati enjoys a rich history and multitudes of traditions that exemplify the Bearcat spirit. The UC Alumni Association recognizes that those histories and traditions are passed down from generation to generation by those who walked the campus of our beloved alma mater for almost 200 years.

To honor those who have and continue to uphold our institution’s alma mater, the Golden Bearcats Society (GBS) was established to represent all alumni who have celebrated 50 years since graduating from UC. Each Spring during Alumni Weekend, the UCAA hosts the Golden Bearcats Society Luncheon to acknowledge all members of the Society, as well as induct graduates from a half-century ago.

Membership into the GBS happens automatically with no need to sign up. If you have any questions regarding the Golden Bearcat Society, contact Justin Gibson, Associate Director of Diversity Outreach and Engagement, at 513-556-4312 or
