Winston Churchill declared that Cincinnati was “the most beautiful inland city in America.” A trip to Cincinnati Christian University will serve to affirm this statement as vistas on campus offer beautiful and inspiring views of downtown. With its rich history and vibrant future, Cincinnati is a great city for CCU students to learn and grow. Nestled in the Price Hill community of Cincinnati, CCU’s urban location serves as an ideal site for education, outreach, and entertainment.
The population of Cincinnati exceeds 2.2 million people – big enough to offer the vibrancy of a large metropolis, but intimate enough to provide the familiarity of a small town. Cincinnati is home to ten Fortune 500 companies, a revitalized downtown, professional sports teams, and incredible neighborhoods, making a compelling case for people to put down roots for a lifetime.
Not only does the region boast a promising job market, it offers many amenities to its residents as well as to our students.
In addition to CCU Eagles Athletics, the city boasts numerous professional sports franchises. For a major league experience, catch a Cincinnati Reds baseball game or a Bengals football game. You might also enjoy a game of one of our minor league franchises such as the Cincinnati Cyclones hockey team or Futbol Club Cincinnati.
Cincinnati is home to a vibrant food scene. Whether it’s a new restaurant in the popular Over-the-Rhine neighborhood or Cincinnati staples (Skyline Chili, Graeter’s Ice Cream, LaRosa’s Pizza, or Montgomery Inn), there’s something in the city for everyone.
The city boasts an abundance of music venues, both large and small, which host national artists throughout the year. Check out Riverbend, Taft Theatre, Bogart’s, or The 20th Century Theater.
For almost two centuries, Cincinnati has had a national presence in the arts. There are plenty of opportunities to cultivate your passion for creativity in the city. Try The Cincinnati Art Museum, The Contemporary Arts Center, The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and The Aronoff Center for the Arts.
