A&S: Summer in the City

Last summer the A&S Alumni Network hosted two sold-out events featuring aspects of the City of Cincinnati while linking back to UC history and happenings. This year, we are excited to host two new Summer in the City events.

Space is limited for both events, so be sure to register early!

Race Street


Join Cincinnati historian David Stradling for an exploration of the University of Cincinnati’s many connections to Over-the-Rhine. From Taft’s Ale House we’ll take a short walk up Race Street (a one-mile round trip) to the university’s original location on the not-coincidentally named McMicken Avenue. Dr. Stradling will discuss the many ways in which students and faculty have worked in the neighborhood, from the University Settlement House to the Niehoff Studio. And we’ll not forget the cultural attractions that have brought the community together. From 19th-century German beer gardens to Aunt Maudie’s on Main Street, Over-the-Rhine has long been home to many places where Bearcats have gone to relax. We return to Taft’s for local beer and complimentary munchies where we hope you’ll come prepared to tell your favorite Over-the-Rhine story!

Wednesday, June 28
5:45 p.m. Meet at Taft’s Ale House in the Parlor Room on the lower level

The Analog Game Renaissance

Why is our era –– marked by its preoccupation with digital data, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, drones, and smartphones –– also a time of great innovation and output in the realm of board, card, dice, and role-playing games? In this talk, Professors Evan Torner and Kat Jones from the University of Cincinnati will take us on a brief tour of contemporary analog games, discussing how and why such games have cognitive and emotional appeal. Bring some friends and join us for this short talk and yummy snacks before trying out some games.

Tuesday, July 18
6 p.m. Dialogue on Analog Games
6:30 p.m. Game on!
