heritage	and	traditions	of	Cincinnati.	While	the	College	is	situated	15	
minutes	west	of	downtown,	employment,	arts	and		entertainment	are	
never	too	far	away.
   Numerous	Fortune	500	and	Fortune	1000	companies	are	headquartered	in	
Cincinnati.	Procter	&	Gamble,	The	Kroger	Company,	and	Fifth	Third	Bank,	
among	others,	contribute	to	Cincinnati’s	foundation	while	Cincinnati	
Children’s	Hospital	Medical	Center	is	among	the	nations’	top	children’s	
hospitals.	Mount	Cooperative	Education	students	are	hired	by	more	than	
100	hospitals,	businesses	and	nonprofit	organizations	of	Greater

the	Contemporary	Arts	Center,	Cincinnati	Art	Museum,	Aronoff	Center,

galleries.	Mount	students	often	incorporate	Cincinnati’s	art	exhibits	and	
performances	into	their	studies.	
   Cincinnati	knows	sports.	The	Cincinnati	Reds,	the	Major	League	Baseball	
team,	and	the	Cincinnati	Bengals,	of	the	National	Football	League,	provide	
competition,	entertainment	and	emotion	for	the	city’s	sports	fans.	Co-op	
and	volunteer	opportunities	with	these	organizations	are	often	available	to	
Mount	students.	Cincinnati	is	also	home	to	the	Flying	Pig	Marathon	every	
May	and	the	Master’s	and	Women’s	Open	tennis	tournament	every	August.		
   Historical	neighborhoods	such	as	Mount	Adams,	Clifton	and	Over-
the-Rhine	make	good	architectural	and	cultural	adventures,	while	
additional	entertainment	options	are	just	across	the	Ohio	River	in	
Newport,	Covington	and	Mainstrasse	of	Northern	Kentucky.
