The University of Cincinnati celebrates this week's Bearcat Friday Winner!

The University of Cincinnati Athletic Department developed a way for campus offices and businesses around the country to join in on the fun and show their Bearcat spirit!

This week’s Bearcat Friday Winner is the UC Alumni Association! The Bearcat took at trip downtown to Great American Ballpark last Friday night for the 4th Annual Bearcats at the Ballpark event. UC students, alumni, faculty, staff and fans were encouraged to come out to the game and watch the Cincinnati Reds take on the Washington Nationals. There was also a pre-game event at the Holy Grail with the opportunity for UC fans to win prizes.

“Bearcats at the Ballpark was a huge success, selling over 900 tickets to UC alums, students, faculty, and staff.  It was great to have the Bearcat mascot recognized on field along with the other mascots and UC VIP’s including President Williams, Whit Babcock & Dean Sojka.  It was such a spirited way to welcome our UC fans at the Reds game,” said Mindi Klein, Program Manager for the UC Alumni Association.

The UC Alumni Association represents, serves and inspires current and future alumni in support of the University of Cincinnati. For more information about the UC Alumni Association, please visit
