Stepping up to the plate – the new DPT Class of 2019

With nearly 48% of students with a permanent residence outside of the greater Cincinnati area (IN, KY, IL, WA, FL, TN, VA, MA), what better way to introduce our newest DPT to the city of Cincinnati than a tour of the Great American Ball Park and a history lesson about the Cincinnati Reds! 

Twenty-nine class of 2019 students, two students from the class of 2017, and three faculty members met at the Cincinnati Reds Hall-of-Fame, walked through the diamond club lounge, sat in the press box, took a stroll across the field, piled into the dugout, and learned about various Cincinnati Reds ball players and the evolution of the team since the start of baseball.  It was a gorgeous day to be at the ballpark. 

Rounding third and heading for home – Joe Nuxhall

It only seemed right to follow the morning up with lunch at the Moerlein Lager House followed by an opportunity for students to take in the sites of the Cincinnati Riverfront at Smale Park.  Regardless of where each student was from, the day was enjoyed by all and a great opportunity for the students to bond and become better acquainted. 

And this one belongs to the Reds! – Marty Brennaman

We look forward to sharing in more wonderful events such as this with our current DPT classes and the ones to come in the future!
