UCO is a great place to learn and Edmond is a great place to live - close to home.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to take the ACT again and try to improve my score to be able to get more scholarships. I would also tell myself to stay in shape through that last summer before college. It would also be a good idea to take more math classes in high school to get ready for college math classes. Have fun and don't stress out!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

It is a commuter school, so there isn't much going on in the college community.

Take the ACT more often! Even if you have a high score, the higher you recieve the more money you recieve and it is worth it. Choose a school that you feel a good vibe from and try to have an idea of what you what. The campus I choses is beautiful and a small student oriented campus which made the transistion much easier. Once you are on campus check out the activities they offer, there's something for everyone and it's a great way to meet new people. Make new friends, you need to branch out and not just stick with the friends you have always had, the relationships you form in college are phenomenol and on a whole different level. It may be scary to go out and meet people, but find someone who looks interesting or is alone as well and buddy up, it will be worth it!

What's unique about your campus?

The size and beauty of the campus is amazing. The class sizes are small, which allow one on one learning, however there are still lots of people on campus. The campus itself is covered in trees, beautiful architecture, and wonderful landscaping.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Unhelpful student workers in offices, they tend to not know what is going on and will make you run to several buildings just to get sent back to them originally.

Get involved as much as you can in things that interest you so you can get to know people that you're going to school with!

I'm a native of Edmond, so it is close to home. The Mass Communication programs (I am a Broadcasting major) are well-respected, as well as the Education programs.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't sweat the small stuff. It's not worth getting so stressed over so little. Just enjoy yourself, be more outgoing, make friends, join studygroups and clubs, and you'll be fine. You're too introverted--how are you going to become that big shot television or radio producer if you can't even force yourself to sit in the front of the class? Your professors are there to help you, not hurt you. These four years are about changing and blossoming from the timid bulb that you are into a beautiful flower. Just take that first step. It's okay. Your friends and family are there to help you, just in case. College can be fun! Just quit your stressing.

What's unique about your campus?

It's a small campus, and the classes are small as well, so most of the time the professors have time for individual consultation, as long as you make an appointment. Plus, it's a Green university, and the campus is beautiful (even though there's a bit of construction going on at the moment).

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is important to go to class and read your textbooks! It helps to be prepared for the class before you go. Studying in college is very different than it was in high school. Also, talking to your teachers can be such a big help. They are much more willing to help you out than you may think. Get involved in things you are passionate about because you will get greater satisfaction out of your college years.

What's unique about your campus?

I love the teacher to student ratio. I feel like I learn more here than I would on a larger campus. It seems like teachers are more available and willing to help me than they are at bigger schools.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I wish more students would get involved. Many students come to class and go home. They miss the whole experience of college. They complain that UCO is just a commuter campus, but coming from someone who is extremely involved, I know how untrue this is.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is a very personal decision. What is right for one student may not be right for another. Just because a school has a good reputation doesn't make it the best school for everyone. Students should look into the programs offered at different colleges as well as campus life to see where they would most likely be able to get a good education while enjoying their college experience. It is also very important to visit schools, because I did not know how much I wanted to attend my current university until after I had spent time with faculty and students there. Find the best place for you and enjoy it! And, if you want to make the most of your college experience, do not drink it away. Have fun with friends, but focus on the important things as well and you will be a successful and happy student.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Great class sizes, community feeling within my major, great professors, fun environment

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I think first and foremost when looking for a school is that a student has to have an idea of what he or she is wanting to study. Depending on a chosen field of study parents and students should do research in how a school ranks in that program of study and what the school is like. Students and parents alike should look at class sizes, college life, and tuition costs. The student should visit campuses that they are interested in in order to see what kind of fit they believe would be best for them. It is always good to go on campus tours and asking questions about what to expect from that school. Hopefully these are a few things that help find many students a great college or university that they have always wanted to attend.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about The Univeristy of Central Oklahoma is that it is a medium size school with a big school feel. They offer several degree programs and are continuing to expand them as well. The difference between the University of Central Oklahoma and other unvirsities is that it does have small classrooms and professors that work with students to acheive the students goals.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known how it compares to other universities in the state and in the region in certain areas of study such as education, buisness, or any other comparable field of study in the area.

Natalie
What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is the lack of on-campus parking and housing. A student union would also be nice!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is interested in a school with a family feel with all the perks of a large university.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College can be the most important and enjoyable time for a students life. Selecting the right college takes time and patience, but it is worth it because you want to feel like you belong and achieving the education you deserve. For parents, I would advice taking your child on campus tours and encouraging them to enroll in numerous colleges and schloraships because by not having much financial help it can burden the student by performing poorly in class. For students, enjoy the years you have in college. Take it by your own pace and don't let others influence your college career. You want to be proud of yourself and with a degree, you are opening doors for success. I am currently a Junior and I am looking forward to graduating and looking back upon the many memories I will obtain in college.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the best thing about my campus to be the ethnic diversity amoung the individuals.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag how clean my campus is and the size of the classrooms being small.
