5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school. It feels safe, and offers some of the best equipment available in classrooms. It's surprising how inexpensive this school is for being so top of the line. (As far as STEM majors)

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm only a freshman and I am already involved in STEM major research, which is very rare for undergraduate students. There are so many opportunities available her, it would be very hard not to take advantage of them.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I love the campus dining options. There is a wide variety to choose from and Even a buffet so you can get whatever you like, with plenty of healthy and filling options. The only downside is that they all close around 3pm and the latest one open usually closes around 7pm.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is such a wide variety of students at UCO that you really can't generalize them all together. It would be very difficult to go to school here and not find at least one group of people that you really like. There are clubs and organizations for just about anything here and an incredible amount of students are involved.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants near campus that are very nice and relatively inexpensive. There is a wide variety of options and even a Sprouts Farmers Market within walking distance.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I was invited to a Panhellenic Tea, but didn't attend. I don't know much about Greek life on campus other than the fact that scholarship opportunities may be available.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a very low crime rate in Edmond, Oklahoma. The school offers a system where you can have a police officer walk you to your car for safety, called safety-walk. Zero-tolerance on alcohol and smoke-free campus also makes for a very nice and safe environment.

4 College Junior

Facilities: All of the facilities are really nice. Like I stated earlier this school is awesome at getting the campus and it's students involved and I think they have the best facilities for that.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: I don't really have the time to go out but I hear really great things about nightlife.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I am pretty new to the UCO campus, but I love it so far. The school spirit is my favorite part. This school is known for being the best at getting students involved!

3 College Junior

Facilities: Uco is a very clean campus. I is apparent around campus though that they could have done better with some of the architecture. Compared to some of the higher division schools in the state Uco needs to bring up their standard of exactly what a college campus has the capability of looking like.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Having such a strong police enforcement in the area make they campus police seem like a joke. The local police enforcement is so strict that it rather makes the campus police look like a joke. It is very intimidating and rather discouraging to have as much police enforcement as it does around here. The police treat you as if your guilty until proven innocent.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: For the most part the general cleanliness of all the facilities is very clean and very organized. It is easy to locate all of the cleaning supplies needed. sanitation is very fairly kept I feel. It is easy to keep yourself clean as well as all of the items that you are able to use around campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The school strives very hard to make it as easy on everyone that they can. their technical support team does an excellent job at seeing to it that every one is able to understand how to utilize the network as well as get the technical support that they need.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Uco, compared to the other few campuses that have visited has the best diversity and mixture of ethnic beliefs that I have seen. The campus pays close attention to detail when dealing the the great amount of people that it has on campus. The work hard to see that each person and their individuality is recognized and brought about very carefully.

3 College Junior

Majors: I didn't really have difficulty getting into my program. However i was qualified for the position I still was required as everyone else was to take care of the necessary process of enrollment and the addition of appropriate classes, the staff is also always very helpful when I am in need of assistance regarding anything for enrollment.

3 College Junior

Majors: My program is the pre-med program offered here at Uco, this program although rigorous I enjoy my program very much! My professors have been very cooperative and have been very helpful in every situation that I have run into along this journey. The curriculum is very informative and it is easy to relate to how i will be using it in my career. The facilities that i use everyday are very nice and are very clean and resourceful. The general grounds and labs as well as equipment are nice and i enjoy the fact that i have the privilege to use them.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors that i have had in the past have been the best at the University. The classes are all reasonable sizes and i can usually reach my professor without struggle. A few times the electronic and technology side of the class seems to mess up which does have a negative effect on my grades and i wish that would be better taken care of but usually it can be handled if one communicates the difficulty to the professor.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: in general the students do not communicate well with each-other. It is pretty difficult to locate groups within the small classes and this makes it harder to bring together groups that are within the same classmates. Many times i find it difficult to brainstorm together with classmates due to the small classes.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Here in Edmond the general variety of food options is really good. Although if your looking for the healthiest options then you may want to simply just cook for yourself. Many different restaurants fill the surrounding area and they are usually pretty reasonably priced. For the general needs of a student the area provides adequate nutrition.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: On campus dinning is reasonable and pretty decent. The only downside to the food is that most places have the same general menus and the all close rather early leaving the on campus student to vending or leaving the campus to find decent food after hours. When campus is open then the food court has a nice variety however.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: In general the atmosphere is reasonably acceptable and rather painless. If one can get over the higher cost of living, probably the most expensive region of the state, then the other parts are not to difficult to handle. The traffic can get technical at some times, and the shopping is a bit over priced in some areas but generally the atmosphere is enjoyable.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The near campus living here in Edmond is very highly priced for its accommodations. College students are fund limited and this needs to be brought about to the public's eye. Not every college student's parents can afford to live on campus nor close to campus at these rates. The city bus may provide needed transportation, yet the housing cost are almost unbearable while in school full time.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: In my 2 years of attending this college i have been approached once about joining greek life. I refused the first time because i was a fresshman and wanted to see the other option that might come my way. Since this invitation i have had no other invitations which is rather uphalding. I would say that the openness of greek life around campus should be broader and more open to new people and new ideas.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus life as i attended was rather enjoyable. I enjoyed being in the the middle of campus and generally made it to every class on time. I enjoyed the fact that the campus is very accessible to all students and that assigned work can generally be completed by using the on campus facilities. Overall I enjoyed the campus life at the University and would consider returning to stay if need be.

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.
