Aaron Allen, Electronic Media Technology, 2010

Aaron admits he was a “band nerd” in high school. He played multiple instruments in several bands throughout high school, including Concert, Marching, Jazz, Pep, and even a rock band. While recording demo CD’s for his rock group, he discovered an unknown passion that would change the path of his future.

“I realized that I loved the production process of making [the music demos] more than actually performing,” says Allen. From that moment on, he would pursue an education that would prepare him for a career creating various forms of media. Read more...

blue ash dash

UC Blue Ash Dash for Scholarships
Saturday, October 11, 2014 – Save the date!

On Saturday, October 12, 2013, UC Blue Ash invited alumni, current students, faculty, staff, friends and community members to campus to run or walk (or even sleep in!) in the inaugural UC Blue Ash Dash for Scholarships. This exciting, free event was a 5K walk or run, which started and ended on our beautiful campus, and raised money for the UC Blue Ash Scholarship Fund.

With over 420 registrants and numerous sponsoring community partners, UC Blue Ash College raised over $28,000 for students’ educational expenses via the scholarship fund. Racers competed for awards in teams, or individually, and some even dressed in costume for a chance to win the “Best Costume Award”. In addition to the exercise, everyone enjoyed the music, refreshments and tasty treats provided by our sponsors.

Be sure to mark your calendar for Saturday, October 11, 2014 for the 2nd Annual UC Blue Ash Dash for Scholarships!
