When I first went on campus tour to The University of Central Oklahoma, I loved it. I come from a small high school compare to others around the area and uco was the perfect size for me. It's not as big as ou or osu stillwater but bigger than a community college. My campus tour experience was excellent! I met lots of faculty and current students. Hearing their experience here at this college really convinced me to come here. More importantly they were friendly and well welcomed.
Review University of Central Oklahoma
The University of central Oklahoma is a really great college, I have been there 2 years now and have no regrets in my choice! I am very involved in the school which is why I think I like it so much. I am on the cheerleading squad and also a manager for wrestling. Those two experiences have gave me a place where I fit in perfectly but there is so much more than that that they offer. Their academics are wonderful, and they have a good greek life also. The only thing that I would change about the school is the parking, it is terrible until later in the year when kids stop showing up.
So far my experience at the University of Central Oklahoma has been AMAZING! What I really like about the University is that everyone there will make you feel so comfortable your first time being there. It's so diverse and all the staff is so friendly and helpful! However, one thing that I would hope they change is the food, maybe more varieties and healthier choices. Don't get me wrong, the food is good. It just needs a little improvements. Overall, the University of Central Oklahoma is a great college! I would recommend this school to anyone who not only wants a nonforgettable college experience but also somewhere they can feel at home.
