Hannah - 8/14/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018
"OU is a phenomenal school in that it comes with a massive variety of educational and professional opportunities. The most important thing a student here can do is connect with fellow peers and with their professors. One thing I found was an issue was that the Psychology department was so large that I struggled to meet and maintain a relationship with my professors. Other smaller courses I took outside of psychology gave me a much more intimate learning space. Get involved, get connected. OU will take you places!"

Degree:
Graduation Year: 2006
"The University of Central Oklahoma is a standard public midwest institution for higher education. There is nothing particular that stands out about the university. I never had any issues with professors, but I also don't feel like I was very challenged during my time. If you're looking to be a high school teacher, this school will work for you. But if you're training to make a career in theatre, I would suggest exploring options in cities that are more known for their theatrical background (ie. NYC or Chicago). The most beneficial aspect for me was the low cost attendance. However, that was 13 years ago. I am not sure what the cost of a 4-year education is now."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"This is the best school for those looking for a smaller environment. The teachers are really focused on the student. They take the time to make sure that each student understand the topic. They come up with fun and creative ways to influence a better learning environment."

Dana C Avey - 4/22/2017
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2002
"For my undergraduate degree, I attended the University of Central Oklahoma. The four years I spent there were undoubtedly four of the best years of my life. There are so many aspects of UCO that I tremendously appreciated and valued during my tenure there. The University, itself, is sizeable - over 15,000 students. However, the city of Edmond, has a great deal of small-town appeal, and I found the balance welcoming. As I progressed through my studies, I found my coursework to be rigorous and the faculty to be stellar. I genuinely enjoyed my classes and the time I spent on campus. While pursuing my degree, I was involved in numerous campus organizations, and this investment proved massively fruitful; not only from a social perspective but also from a professional networking perspective down the road. UCO also draws in a multitude of non-traditional students, and I found this additive to be supportive of my growth and learning, both as a student and as a citizen of the local community. Furthermore, I cannot say enough about the level of diversity at UCO. The international student population is vast, and I will never forget the multicultural exposure this afforded me. Overall, I would not trade those four years spent there for anything. I have never looked back and regretted or second-guessed my time there. I would recommend UCO to anyone."

"University of Central Oklahoma gave me an opportunity to learn with and from people from all backgrounds. There were dozens of leadership and service organizations for me to be apart of to help me grow and to prepare for life after college. I am a proud Broncho alum!"

Derrick Jones - 2/6/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"My University of Oklahoma education was the best experience of my life. I attained a degree in Biology and a minor in Psychology. The level of instruction and diversity of classes offered was excellent. The University offers a wide range of financial assistance, free tutoring, and extra-curricular activities and opportunities for students. For example, I participated in one program in which I worked a 6 month internship during school where I helped design and patent a surgical tool. That was just one of many enriching and varied opportunities I was able to capitalize on. At OU, you feel like part of a community, and that community truly supports each and every student."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2007
"UCO is THE best school in the state to study nursing! The instructors genuinely care about your learning, and the experiences that I have had in clinicals have greatly helped shape my current practice. The curriculum at UCO will also prepare you for leadership positions as well as graduate school."

coolchick29 - 7/22/2016
Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2007
"This college is known in Oklahoma for having the only recognized forensic science program and it's super awesome nursing program . It's in a small town, but the college is a bit large. We have a lot of international students here, that go on and do well in their future careers. We also have a lot of student life activities where volunteering int he community is a must. The teachers' doors are alway open. I loved my science professors, they were really open to discussing any problems you may have."
