4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The wellness center is wonderful.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: A student union is greatly needed. more restaurants.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: 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.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: 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.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I love how beautiful the campus is and the fact that they try to keep things interesting and different.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The facilities on campus provide another aspect of campus life that students rely on—relaxation! If there is a particular activity you enjoy, UCO has it. There are athletic organizations, hangout spots, and even areas you may just want to sit in for a quiet piece of thought-gathering.

Most students frequent the library until the wee hours of the morning, or even get caught up on campus life by sitting around the lobbies of the Nigh University Center or the dining halls. The surrounding Edmond and Oklahoma City areas are also great ways to escape through restaurants, movie theaters, recreational centers, and more. College life includes not only academics, but goes right along with students being active and experiencing college activities at their best.

Traditions
  • Basketball and football games: Basketball and football games are considered major events on campus. A large portion of the surrounding community that may include the players' families and friends or fellow students come out to support UCO players.
  • First Week of Moving In : The first week of moving in tends to be very hectic and fast-paced for most students. The best idea is to check off a list of to-do items, which may include a meeting with roommates about house rules or even tying up loose ends from the enrollment process.
  • Homecoming events : Homecoming is an annual, week-long alumni event that is celebrated with campus events related to the school's anniversary and culminates with the crowning of Homecoming king and queen.
  • Stampede Week: Stampede Week is considered Greek Week for students on campus. It is centered around a number of events that include nationally known guest speakers and comedians and campus-wide events to help students learn more about UCO's Greek Life and community.
Urban Legends
Some people say the Old North building on campus is haunted.
Favorite Things To Do
UCO student life activities are typically centered around athletics, housing activities, Greek life, campus organizations, and community service projects. Student activity and participation in these campus resources usually depend on their interests, whether on campus or off, but any down time outside of academics in the UCO community tends to be widely appreciated by students.
