Mayambis – A UCBA Legacy.

The Mayambis are no strangers to UC Blue Ash. So far, four of the Mayambi siblings and one of their cousins have either graduated from or are currently attending our college. Some of you may know Gift, Joyce and Romaine, who are students right now at UCBA. Learn more here about how they moved to Cincnnati from half-way around the world, why our college is such a perfect fit for their family, and why they make such a great addition to our halls.

A case with artifacts from 1967 is part of the new display in the UCBA Library.

1967 on Display. 

Go back to 1967 through a new display in the UC Blue Ash Library that was provided by the Cincinnati Museum Center. Learn more about the price of a gallon of gas, see artifacts from that time, and read about the key events that happened that year – including the opening of UC Blue Ash College. The display is part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations and the Curate My Community project being conducted by the CMC.
