Living on campus was fun. Dorms were okay - the typical dorms - small and not a lot of room but enjoyed it while I was there. Most professors are helpful. Lots of organizations to join.

I transferred to the University of Central Oklahoma from a community college, and the process was very easy and quick. The adviser I spoke to was very helpful in explaining what classes I need to take, when I should take them, and how much they would cost. The campus is very simple and small compared to other universities, making it easy to walk from place to place. The tuition is much more affordable than other top universities and has excellent professors and small classes. One thing I would like to see changed however is their financial aid office. Like many colleges, their financial aid office is a bit unorganized. It seems some of their staff don't really know what they are doing and give you generic information that doesn't really help you and might even cause some mix ups, especially when it comes to scholarships.

Professors are very knowledgeable and approachable which I always love seeing in a university. It really helps the student success rate go up.
