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

Finding the right college is a tough decision and is different for each student. I suggest taking a campus tour, and if offer more prospective student servises, take advantages of them. Speak with students with varying majors about their experience, and look into the number of student organizations if you are looking to be involved. If you want to go greek, attend an orientation if offered to see if you really want to participate in that school's greek atmosphere. If the college has on-campus housing, you should definately live on campus your first year. You meet the most people and learn from them that way, and it's a really good experience to have to share a room with another person and a bathroom with a lot of other people. You learn a lot about other people and yourself from living on campus, plus it's so convienent! The more involved in campus activities, the better, because most activities involve some amount of volunteering, which is great for resumes, and it's a lot of fun to do somehting besides just classes. Judge carefully and have fun!

UCO is a quaint campus, not too big, not too small.

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

I believe a prospective student should pay attention to what is most important in terms of size of classroom. Whether you like a larger size student ratio to teacher, then a bigger school is your choice and vice-versa. Also, the availability of on-campus housing is important. If the housing isn't as one would expect, look at other options. The staff should be determined to be there to help you succeed as a student. If the professors are thinking they're there for a paycheck, then make a better choice.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

One who loves school spirit should not attend this university.

Describe the students at your school.

Try living on campus. It will get you involved and you'll find things about school that will help ensure that you stay in school. Always go to class. Its important to push yourself to be a better adult. You are here to learn and that means outside of the classroom as well.

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

Life is about learning as you go. You don't have to have all the answers when you enter college. In university you will find many new paths and interests that will help to point you in the right direction. You may not have all the answers when you leave. There is never an end to learning. If you like your feild and want a more specific degree try again with a higher degree. But don't push yourself when you are unhappy. You will waste a lot of time and money if you are doing something against your wishes. Don't expect yourself or anybody else to be perfect. Always try harder to reach your full potential.

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

Sometimes there is too much going on. There are many extra curricular activities and ways to get involved but it is easy to get distracted from school. So that at the end of the semester you are scrambling to get everything done that needs to be done.

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

I would first tell them to visit the campus. Do not just pick a college because it is popular or has great sports teams. Go to the campus, take a tour, and see if you could picture yourself living there and being happy. Pick the campus that you are most comfortable with even if it isn't a huge college that you always thought you would go to. Parents, don't put too much pressure on your kid to go to a big state school right out of high school. And about the college experience, do it all. Have fun and remember to always be safe. College is some of the best times of your life, don't ruin it doing something stupid.

For finding the right college: Visist all prospective college or university campuses and take campus tours . Learn about the university or college, learn about financial aid, campus organizations, extra ciricucular activites, campus environment, and campus envolvement. If you have time, sit in on a class. Select the best school that fits your needs, besides you are paying for your education. To make the most of college life: Study, have fun, make friends, be open to the new and diverse, get involved with campus activities and organizations, meet and greet your professors, visit your professors office, and stay away from drugs and alcohol.

Are school is mostly known for its education depapartment. UCO has the best teaching department in the state of Oklahoma although all degrees are great.

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

The most unique thing about UCO are the people. The people make this university. Everyone is so friendly and eager to help and encourage others.

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

As a prospective student, it is important to focus on what is best for you as in individual when choosing the right college. You must ask yourself "What am I looking for in my college experience?" If the answer to your question is academics and you plan on being a lawyer or doctor, you must look for colleges that are going to gear you academically to continue your post graduate degree. If the answer to your question is on campus involvement, start looking at different organizations now. Go on campus tours and do not be afraid to ask questions and see what the campus offers. Remember some colleges do not have fraternities and sororities so make sure you do all the research you can before you enrole. As a parent of a prospective student help your child as much as you can, but let me be independent as well. This is a time of major growth and it is very important that they learn things on their own. Be supportive but don't be afraid if they don't come home every weekend. Let them enjoy their college experience and they will be greatly appreciative.

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

My advice for parents and students is take a day to get a feel of what the atmosphere of that college is like. Maybe not so much the parents, but I really recommend that students take a day to walk around the campus and see most of the buildings so that they can actually see what it would be like to attend, not just seeing what the tour guide shows you. It is important that parents and students talk with students already attending that college to see what they like and dislike about it. When it comes to making the most out of the college experience, it is a great idea to form study groups early on in the semester. It's a great way to get a head start on studying the materials as well as making great friends to hang out with later on. Make sure to stay positive and open minded about things. Most importantly of all, stay forcused. You're at college for a reason. The last thing you want is to make the best years of your life become your worst!

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

I wish I had known that the Broadcasting program really was not as nice as it was made out to be.

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

The worst thing would have to be how it does not realy make you feel like a college student. The class room sizes are about the same as they were in high school and the campus does not really feel like what you normally think of as a typical university.

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

Make sure that it fits you. Going to college is hard enough. Don't get stuck at a school that you don't really like just because it's close or convient.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about the school is that it has small classes, and it is not too demanding.

What kind of person should attend this school?

University of Central Oklahoma is not good for someone who wants to go to a school that is always busy. UCO has a lot of people who do not live on campus, so the campus itself can get boring.
