UC March Mania Giving Challenge—We are the Champions!

UC Blue Ash recently went head-to-head with 14 other UC Colleges in a four-day bracket-style giving challenge—and WON! We are proud to announce that UC Blue Ash is the 2016 UC March Mania Challenge Champion. UC Blue Ash overwhelmingly beat the College of Arts & Sciences and wildcard team the Lindner College of Business in the final round on Friday, March 11. UC Blue Ash scored 809 generous donations, as small as $1, totaling almost $4,000 benefitting UC Blue Ash College over the course of the competition. As the winners, the college receives an additional $2,500 in funding to add to its growing pool of scholarship funds, helping even more students reach their educational goals.

“I am very proud of the amazing teamwork we demonstrate every day at our college and March Mania is another example of everyone – students, faculty, staff, alumni and many of our community partners – working together toward a common goal,“ Cady Short-Thompson, dean of UC Blue Ash, said of the victory. Keep an eye out for next year’s March Mania Challenge and help us defend our title!

Nursing Student Success Fund—Help us to Build a Better Nursing Workforce

The deadline to participate is Thursday, March 31—Gifts of just $5 add up to make a Big Impact

 UCBA Nursing students need your help! Often times, our nursing students find themselves at the finish line of their college education with no money left to pay for their NCLEX exam or board fees, let alone to pay for study workshops to ensure they do well on the exam. Help UCBA students have a greater success rate by donating just $5 or more to the Nursing Student Success Fund to help nursing students afford a preparatory workshop held here at UC Blue Ash in April, as well as their necessary licensure exam and board fees. With your help, more future nurses can begin doing what they love sooner—helping and caring for others. CLICK to learn more
