Union’s Community Fest Reaches Out To Neighbors

Fall was in the air and the soup was hot, as UI&U Cincinnati employees welcomed the Walnut Hills neighborhood at Community Fest on October 12.

The fun filled afternoon offered delicious food, corn hole, building tours, neighbor showcase tables, and a unique way to connect with the neighborhood.

“Community Fest offered a new way to reach out to our neighbors and serve our community,” said Donna Gruber, Cincinnati Academic Center Executive Director. “Union has been part of the Walnut Hills fabric for 28 years and is located in a historic Tudor-style building. The area is a dynamic and vibrant neighborhood that is growing and changing in front of our eyes and Union is a dynamic and vibrant university that serves our community and also attracts many students from across the country. The afternoon gave us an opportunity for us to live our mission: to engage, enlighten, and empower adults to pursue a lifetime of learning, service, and social responsibility.”
