Here’s a review of the questions:
- When traveling the highways and byways of Cincinnati, you “sorta” notice the word SORTA on city buses. What does it stand for?
- What is the name of the small, private, Catholic university across the river in Crestview Hills, KY, that was started by Benedictine nuns in 1921?
- What is the name of the music hall and “rejuvenated Cincinnati treasure,” reborn in 2016 thanks to an $11,000,000 renovation?
And here are the answers:
- The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority (SORTA) is a tax-supported, independent political subdivision of the State of Ohio and is a government entity. SORTA operates Metro bus service and paratransit service for people whose disabilities prevent their riding Metro buses. They also operate the Cincinnati Bell Connector, those cool-looking streetcars downtown that are modeled after innovative transportation modes in cities like Portland, OR.
- Don’t let Thomas More University’s small enrollment of only 1300 students fool you. It is a well-respected member of the Greater Cincinnati College Connection (G3) and offers students graduate and post-graduate studies across a wide range of majors, including education, business and Ethical Leadership and Interdisciplinary Studies. Their substantial sports programs helped prominent athletes like baseball’s David Justice and NBA stars Rick Hughes, Larry Staverman and Dan Tieman get their starts.
- The Hamilton County Memorial Building, more commonly called Memorial Hall OTR, is located at Elm & Grant Streets, in downtown Cincinnati. OTR is an abbreviation for “Over the Rhine,” which denotes the Cincinnati neighborhood where the hall is located. Originally constructed in 1908, it exemplifies the “Beaux Arts” architectural style and holds 600 audience members. The one-time home to the city’s, orchestra, ballet, and opera now hosts primarily musical performances, including upcoming shows by Jefferson Starship, Judy Collins and Five for Fighting.
