The university of central Oklahoma is great! The professors and all of the other staff members are nice and engage and help when its needed. For the most part the classes are small so you get more interaction unlike other big universities. They have a lot of clubs to join and there is something for everyone. They also have a good sports program if you are the more athletic type. The classes are organized and the other students are nice for the most part as well. It is just a really great school inside and out and I highly recommend the university of central Oklahoma to anyone looking to further their education!

I am a freshman at UCO and I absolutely love it here! The other students here are wonderful to be around, are encouraging, and the most supporting group of people I have ever met. I may not be living on campus, but I feel like I am still just as involved as everyone else. The professors are always there for you and are more than happy to help you if you come in for it.
My experience at UCO has been great all around! My advisors have kept me on track to graduate on time, any questions asked were answered and a great support system is there at UCO. Something I would like to see change however is the university’s wellness center. It would be nice to have a bigger gym and more space to workout and not be so crowded.
