University of Cincinnati Student Groups Unite Behind Sportsmanship
The student section is the proud heartbeat of our athletics program. The energy and enthusiasm we bring inspires our student-athletes, enhances the game day atmosphere for all fans in attendance, and plays a vital role in the Bearcats success on the field.
Unfortunately, our desire to passionately support our teams occasionally results in the display of well-intended, yet still unequivocally inappropriate behavior. We recognize that profane chants have been directed at opponents from our student section, and we apologize to anyone we may have offended. We conducted ourselves in a manner that is contrary to what our university and athletics program represent in our mission to be “the class of the league.” For that, we are deeply sorry and greatly ashamed. This is not what we have been taught at our excellent institution and certainly not how we wish to be characterized.
As student leaders, we will work tirelessly to educate our fellow students on proper conduct at sporting events in an effort to eradicate any and all forms of inappropriate behavior. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that this behavior, and any other similarly unbecoming conduct, will never again occur in our student section.
As evidenced by record-breaking student attendance numbers, our support for Bearcats athletics has never been stronger. It is truly an amazing time to be a student at the University of Cincinnati. Through actions that embody our values of spirit and sportsmanship, let’s continue building the best home-field advantage in all of college sports!
See you on Game Day!
