The faculty and professors work really hard to prepare students for the real world. The professors were really encouraging and helpful when it came to class work and understanding the material. The school atmosphere is lacking some in school spirit and the student body seems to disinterested in finishing school. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and loved every minute of it.

The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma is a fairly nice college that offers a decent amount of majors for a student to choose from, although, I would not say it was enough. This college works perfectly if you just want to go and get your degree and leave, but if you are someone who wants more from a college, maybe an experience for example, then USAO isn't necessarily the place to be. The campus is about as wide AND deep as a puddle.
The school has all the benefits of a private college with the public college prices. The atmosphere is great. The people and staff at the university are all friendly and have you in their best interest. There are a ton of opportunities for you to be involved on campus as well. All in all, USAO is a fantastic school!
