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 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 should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice I would give parents and students about finding the right college is to go somewhere that has a strong program in your interest of study. When you are applying for jobs after graduation in your field, it looks impressive that you graduated from an institution that has a specialized program in the career choice you have chosen. The best way to make the most of your college experience is by getting involved and meeting people. Make sure you know your academic advisor because they help you throughout your entire time in school. The only way to make new friends is by doing as much as you can, join clubs and be opened minded about greek life. Also, be sure you GO TO CLASS because that's the secret to passing! And by going to class regularly, you have an opportunity to meet your classmates and form a relationship with your professor.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The parking is the most frustrating thing. The parking decals are more expensive than they are worth because it is impossible to find an on-campus parking spot. Majority of the students park in neighborhoods close by or side streets, however sometimes they can be ticketed by the local police department.

Make sure the Child or young adult is ready for College before making that choice. Some people just aren't ready right out of highschool!

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

I would advise parents to listen to their child and set down with them and truely talk about the goals they have and what would make them happy in life. To the student I would encourage them to look within themselves to find what they want to do or expect out of life and if they do not know yet that it is ok. Also, I would ask the students to not be afraid to tell their parents what they deep down truely want to to with themselves and not just say something that they think their parents want to hear. I would recommend that the students and parents actively and aggressively look at all educational outlets to find the one that is perfect for the student, and the parents combined. Staying on top of applications and financial paperwork is a must. It is very important for the parents to completely support thier child in whatever descision they choose to make about the future. Finally, when the student is pursuing a degree in a field they love and with the support of their family it will be easier to complete the degree, and be happy in life

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

There is too much emphisis on sports and not enough on acedemics.

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

My advice to anybody looking for the perfect school is, pick for yourself. Do not pick a university because that is where all of your friends are going. Just because the school fits your best friends does not mean that it will fit you. In order to get the full college experience you should be active, but do not forget about your academics, because that is how you meet new people and make new friends. Whether it is through recruitment/rush or just joining small campus organization you should be active in some shape or form.

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

I brag about our greek life because we are very active on campus.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

You should consider the school as a temple you go to learn, in which you work extremely hard so that nothing is going to scare you after you graduate.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The quality of education the school provides is priceless since it offers many small sized classes with intensive work schedule which makes you learn.

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

The most important thing is to visit the school you choose and talk to faculty members before you decide to attend the school. You need to make sure that you have faculty members you can trust in the school so that you KNOW that they will help you to achive your goal. As long as you have the goal to pursue, and the specific ideas to achive it, the right school will come to you. For parents, I will say one thing. Please trust your children, and let them decide where to go. It is their life, and not for you.

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

Just go to several campuses and feel them out. Forget about the statistics. When you find a place where you feel comfortable, you'll know. If I would've done that my first year of college, I would've ended up in a much better school than I did. Because I let statistics and scholarships guide me, I had the stress of hating the first university I attended, as well as the stress of trying to transfer to UCO during finals of my second term. Let your feelings guide through the school selection process. You have to deal with it for at least four years.

What's unique about your campus?

The cost. It is far cheaper than surrounding schools for an education that is almost as good.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

UCO is best known for their community service. There seems to be opportunity weekly to donate time and energy giving back to the community. I have participated in many events and find the majority of students do as well.

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

Finding the right college and making the best of the college experience is a difficult but rewarding process. I am one of the lucky ones, my college choice was easy, and to date the experience has been rewarding. To find the right college, I stared with identifying those things that were important to me. What degree programs did the college offer, did the college offer the sport I wanted to play, was the college not too big, yet not to small. I wrote these items down and ranked them, keeping me on track with my pending decision. I spent many hours with high school counselors, coaches and college advisors. I made a list of schools and did some internet research on my own. Once I was down to a short list, I began to reach out to those schools for additional information. After some onsite visits, I made my final decision. Making the best of the college experience is easy. I suggest everyone live in a dorm for at least the first year; this allows you to meet many of your fellow college students. Participate in school events and volunteer as often as time allows.

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

UCO has that small town feeling, everyone seems to know everyone. I like to brag about all the new friends I have found, being from out of state, I worried about making friends. UCO has provided me with a school that feels more like a home.
