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.

College Senior

Diversity: I dont know what the Diversity is for UCO besides the Ethnicity because its a lot of international students.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus, which is one of the reasons I enjoy UCO. There people from lots of different backgrounds, which makes attending UCO very interesting. Acceptance has never been an issue. Everyone is very accepting of everyone else, and there are very few challenges that I'm aware of regarding the diversities.

Diversity: The students at UCO are all very different however they're typically very accepting as well. It's very diverse and there isn't necessarily a "typical" student.

The UCO campus diversity is very alive and well in just about every aspect of campus life. There is a countless number of ethnic backgrounds, along with religious and political beliefs that bring UCO's individual culture together as a whole.

There are various organizations directed at virtually anything that relates to a student's particular lifestyle or background. The Office of Multicultural Student Services and the International Student Office seek to provide many opportunities for all students, such as scholarships, multicultural organizations, and resources necessary for success and collegiate progression. If you are interested in a certain group or program, it is likely it has been established or there are opportunities available to create it. The chance to experience a wide range of cultures and backgrounds is strongly supported on campus both socially and academically through these organizations and course programs that are offered.

Gay Pride
The general campus attitude towards GLBT is, of course, very accepting, the same as all other lifestyles and backgrounds that make UCO such a diverse community. At UCO, there is the GATE (Gay Alliance for Tolerance and Equality) organization created to provide support for all members of UCO's gay community. GATE deals with GLBT issues on campus, and promotes awareness through programs and events.
Political Activity
UCO provides several political student organizations on campus relative to American politics, well as international student organizations such as Young Democrats and the Saudi Student Organization. The general student population tends to be vocal about political issues when they are mentioned, it is not extremely common or heard of on campus unless discussed through these organizations.
Economic Status
Although it is difficult to determine who exactly is within the upper, middle, or lower classes in UCO's student population, it is very common that financial aid is utilized in order for students to attend college. There isn't any obvious discrimination among the student body related to financial aid, but UCO does maintain record of how much of the student population receives aid based on previous years.
Most Common Religions
There are several student organizations that are targeted toward individual religions for students who seek to become more involved in their religious beliefs and practices.
Minority Clubs on Campus
The Office of Multicultural Student Services provides all kinds of resources, along with various organizations that relate to minority backgrounds that are active on campus. Some organizations that are a part of Multicultural Student Services are the Asian American Student Association, the Black Student Association, and the Hispanic Student Association.
Did You Know?
The Office of Multicultural Student Services offers several committees directed at particular ethnicities and backgrounds, such as scholarship pageants and other events to celebrate these individual cultures.
