4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There are quite a few off-campus housing spots. The college allows these places to advertise on their campus. The cons of living off campus is obviously not being as close to the campus buildings. A lot of the housing is pretty close to the campus though. Landlords are average and it is really safe. Parking is not a problem off campus. The cost is probably better than living on campus, and it not as strict. Dorms have a curfew for having the opposite sex in their dorm.

Campus Dining: Buddy's has a great variety of food and it is a buffet, but the food isn't all that great. Legends is a restaurant in the Nigh Center and tastes pretty good but is probably a little too expensive. The other places to eat are fast food places in the Night Center. These include Flat Tire Burgers, Chick-fil-A, Quiznos, a pizza place, and a chinese place. You can only use your meal plan at Buddy's, though.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are many dining options off campus. The campus is in part of the busiest side of the city. Most of the restaurants and stores are in this area. There are not many options on campus though. The cost of dining on and off campus is pretty average. Student discount? HA. What is a student discount I have ever seen it in any place I have ever been to in my entire life! The burger restaurant, named "The Garage," is a really good place if you love burgers.

5 College Student

Scholarships: It was really easy. I just did the FAFSA and later, when the school year started, it gave me the amount of financial aid money I received and deducted it from my tuition costs. If there was any money leftover from my financial aid, it was put into a banking account that all students get and can be accessed through a debit card each student receives.

2 College Student

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty small and not that great, but do cost a good chunk of money. They are renewing/have renewed the men's dorms some so that is good. Cost of tuition isn't that high but living on campus basically doubles the amount. People are easy to interact with and most buildings aren't that far from each other.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: It is located in Edmond, Oklahoma, which is one of the safest cities in the nation. There are not really any attractions but there are a good amount of stores and the college host a lot of activities and events. Sports here aren't really a big thing but they do matter. Everyone is generally pretty nice.

4 College Student

Weather: Oklahoma weather is crazy. UCO tries to keep the campus open if they can. Even with bad conditions like snow and ice. Ihey do a pretty good job shoveling the snow and ice off most sidewalks.

5 College Student

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus. They do not seem to care who you are, your economic background, or anything really. If you are a minority you seem to be more accepted, but its not noticeable. It is not biased at all.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is relatively great. The police station and fire stations are really close by so if anything were to happen, it could be attended to immediately. The campus police are not strict but they do their job well. There has only been one crime that I have heard about on campus since I have been here, but that was late at night.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: The campus isn't that strict on cell phones even though most syllabi say that they do not allow them in class. If one goes off or is being used, nothing happens. It is just ignored. Some professors care about coming in late but not many. I have only had one, but he didn't take attendance so it didn't really matter. It's a pretty free campus as far as I know.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Everything's pretty average here. Nothing too extreme, except for our honor code. You can sometimes get away with stuff, but there are expulsions, too. I think it just depends.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: If you don't go to the games, you don't hear much about the sports on campus, especially the football team. You can usually see people playing some kind of sport around campus if it's warm enough, though.

Scholarships: Getting financial aid isn't hard, it's getting the financial aid office to cooperate. They're constantly busy so it's sometimes hard to get through, especially if you call or email. If you can, go in to get things settled. But a lot of scholarships don't even go through them. They're through the different departments and colleges through campus. I don't know much about loans, I haven't needed to take any out so far.

Drug Safety: Lots of people do drugs and drink, but it's not rampant or overly public. There isn't a crazy drunk dude or the tweaker by the lake. It's mostly at parties which are usually just in the neighborhoods.

Academics: There are a lot of great professors here. It isn't perfect, you're going to find a few duds at every school, but so far, I've like most of mine. They try to work with you and make class exciting. You just have to put in the effort.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Most majors you just have to declare. I'm a creative writing major, so I didn't have to take any big tests or meet any requirements.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love my classes, they're so fun. There's lots of activities for English majors, but a lot of people don't go to them.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you know the right frats and sororities.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There's lots of computers in the library.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Not much to do, but it's at least peaceful.

3 College Freshman

Weather: You learn to deal. We never close for snow though.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: There is next to no public transportation.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't for me. I've met a lot of the sorority girls and they're not the sweetest bunch of people.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live in the campus housing and have never lived there before. So I am unaware of what the buildings are like.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are numerous restaurants, fast food chains, and foreign restaurants to keep any one person interested and trying something whenever they like.

UCO is an amazing university for students of all walks of life to grow and excel to the best of their ability. There are tons of opportunities available to help students reach their potential in every aspect of college life both on and off campus. Campus courses, activities, events, housing, and student organizations are all designed to assist students in becoming more familiar with and preparing for real-life experiences they may not have been able to encounter otherwise. What makes UCO unique is its overwelming amount of community participation and its will to help students build successful lives and careers. There is always someone or some office willing to help with questions or concerns or opportunities to meet new people, and students become a part of something bigger than they can imagine. UCO also exercises its convenience to students with flexible classes, extended hours of facility use such as the campus library, or use of community designated resources. If you are looking forward to building new relationships, learning new concepts, expanding your networking skills, or just looking to experience authentic college life, UCO is the university for you.
