My overall experience with The University of Central Oklahoma has been astounding. A great semester class that the college offers to incoming freshmen is the Success Central class. This class reviews the colleges' values, resources, and programs, being a freshman myself, having this class highly contributed to growing with the college in my first semester.
With the Fall 2018 semester coming to a close to welcome Spring 2018 I am knowledgeable in where I need to go to enroll and having meetings with academic advisement counselors. Counselors will also email students to ensure that one is going through the first semester well.
UCO values safety and involvement to bring higher quality to their students and to the college community. UCO is very inclusive and kind to their student population and values cultural backgrounds and identities.

The University of Central Oklahoma has taught me and prepared me for my future. Not only am I well equipped to enter the postgraduate life, I am a better woman, friend and contributor to society because of the experiences that I have gotten at UCO. The intimate sizes of the classrooms gave me one on one time with each of my professors, ensuring that I am retaining all of the information needed. There are so many different organizations to get involved in and so many different people from different walks of life to connect with and learn from. I have enjoyed my time at UCO and couldn't image my college experience any different! Roll Chos!
This college has an absolutely beautiful campus! The students here, for the most part, are friendly and inviting. Most of the professors make class fun and exiting. UCO makes learning feel fun instead of like a chore. It is one of the top universities I have ever set foot on. Tuition isn't too expensive and I feel like you receive a great education here.
