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!

The one thing I was looking forward to is my professors and I would say there is only one professor I had a bad experience with and let’s just say she was not such a good teacher. But other then her, all my professors were not enemy’s. If I needed help it was like high school talk to them and become friends. They helped me so much my first year on campus and don’t be scared to ask questions they are there to teach so let them. I look forward to my next few years and hope to land a solid job and give back to those first year professors for the help and the time they took out of there busy schedules. I feel like it is also a good place if you don’t want to stress over school. Choose Central and I promise you won’t regret it!
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.
