that group of people that you met at orientation just seems super awesome and cool! But give it a couple of weeks, and you’ll see that you don’t have much to relate to them over. Yet you still try so hard to be a part of the group. You feel left out when you see Facebook photos of events that they had that you weren’t invited to. You try to make conversation with them, but you realize that you don’t have too much in common except for loving One Direction. And as impossible as it seems, talking about Zayn’s hair or Harry’s tattoos all day every day gets old. Instead of being hell-bent on being BFFs with the first people you meet, try to branch out to new people, or remember to keep in contact with friends you had in high school.

I liked the general atmosphere when I went to orientation, everyone was very nice and helpful and seemed extremely willing to do whatever they could to help everyone out. From what of the campus I saw, it seemed very modern and clean, which is fantastic, it also appeared very welcoming, not overbearing or close in any way!
Attending the University of Central Oklahoma has been an exhilarating experience for me as a nontraditional student. I was initially anxious when returning after so many years, but everyone that I have come in to contact with on campus has been so friendly, helpful, and supportive!
