What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCO is a laid back college where you can have a lot of fun and learn so much! Being on campus is extremely interactive and there is always something going on. Teachers are not afraid to engage with their students and are usually there for you when you need them.

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

The worst thing about UCO is that there is always construction. Get it together UCO (:

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! The community is great with a lot of loving people. Most of the teachers love to teacher and try to help their students with every question they have. Even if it doesn't involve their class. The students at the school also look out for each other and if someone has questions, a fellow student could always be there to help you.

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

To do your homework and I don't mean the stuff the teachers throw at you but research what classes you plan on taking. It could make all the difference between you taking a class you don't need and a happy first year.

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

The advice i would give my highschool self is that what you do now is important to your future, but the what peers think of you is not. Most high schoolers are focused on what others think of them and the approval of others, like I was, but if I could go back and change my focus to be on making better grades and truly comprehending the material I would. It is important in highschool to find out who you are, and not become the person everyone else wants you to be but also to focus on studies and learn whats in front of you. I would also tell my self to enjoy the four years of highschool I was given because it goes by faster than it seems it should. Enjoy your friends and enjoy the experience while you have it. You only get to go through high school once.

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

I would consider the worst thing about my school to be the parking because after ten in the morning its almost impossible to find a parking spot. However, its a blessing to have that be my worst complaint of the University.

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

Dear High School self, To be ready for college you need a strong and sturdy backpack for all the books and supplies you will have to haul around campus. I suggest a North Face backpack. Also downloud the app Scholly for your phone. This app has tons of free schlorships that are quick and easy to apply for. Next, go out and buy a big calender and a planner the size of a notebook along with a pack of colorful pins. When you get your class schedule assign a color to each one of your classes. Then when you go and buy the rest of your supplies, get matching color 5 star college ruled notebooks to go along with the pin color you chose for your class. Finally when you have something due in that class take the pin and mark it in your calendar and your planner so you remember and you easily can tell which class it is because of the color of the pin and the matching notebook. I didn't figure that out till this year, and it has helped me get all my assignments in on time. Good luck! Sincerely, Your College Self

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

The advice I would have gave to myself was to stop rushing growing up and to enjoy the last moments with the people that you've spent the last twelve years with you have. I would tell myself that college isn't staying up all night running the streets and crazy parties that you on movies. College is actually hard and the nights you do stay up all night is because you will be in the library studying your brains out. That you have to grow up and be responible because there isn't someone there to make sure you are out of bed and heading to class or someone to wash your clothes. If I could tell myself anything before I went to college it would be to be thankful for the parents I have because in college those two people that have raised you your whole life are the only ones you can really trust and the only ones that will truly be there for you when you have a total breakdown becasue you've been studying for hours upon hours.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The University of Central Oklahoma is a college that anyone could attend. There isn't a specific type of person someone must be to be able to fit in there.

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

Dear high school senior me, do not fret. You may think that graduating high school will be the end of the world and nothing will ever live up to Friday night games and Homecoming, but you are wrong. College is greater than you can imagine. Moving in seems so traumatic, but in reality it is one day and will be over with before you know it. There are so many new experiences in college. The amount of people you meet is crazy. You will say your name, year, and major more times than you can count, but it is all part of the experience. You will meet people that will make you think and become a better human. You will find your bestfriend here. Everything seems so overwhelming at first. When things seem too tough and you are tremendously homesick, just take a deep breath. That big test will pass no matter how much you panic. You will go home and see your family. Don't be so overwhelmed and scared for the future that you forget to enjoy the present. Welcome to the next chapter of your life. Read slow, it will be over before you know it.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe the best thing about my school is the people. Everyone here is so kind and wonderful. The faculty really does care and have an interest in the students' lives and they want to see the students succeed. The students in turn work hard and have pride in this wonderful university.

Super friendly and practically family. Everyone is helpful and wants to see everyone else succeed. It's almost impossible to walk down the halls and not have anyone say hello to you.

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

Dear 17 year old Petra, I know you are excited, nervous and anxious as you are about to begin your collegiate career. Here is my advice to you: Don't panic! You are in good hands. You are about to have one of the greatest experiences and make sure you soak up every second of it. This is a chance for a new beginning, high school was rough and people were not the nicest. Good news, the bullies don't make it to college with you. Take advantage of building relationships with professors, networking with professionals and making friends. These connections you make are so important for your future. College is a chance for you to find yourself and your calling in life. You are indecisive about your major and that is perfectly okay, everyone is a little unsure. Trust yourself when you are about to decide and get ready, because you are about to fall in love. Sincerely, older you. P.S. Listen to your parents, they actually know what they are talking about.

What's unique about your campus?

The professors and the relationships. All the professors are skilled in their area and have had real life experience. It's rare to find professors who have been in the field, especially in mass communications. The professors are so easy to bulid relationships with and are always available outside of class. It's much more enjoyable to learn when it is from a friend.

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

College isn't as terrible as it seems. Don't procrastinate. Ask questions. Join as many organizations as possible and meet new people. Get involved and volunteer as often as possible. Talk to strangers in the elevator. If someone looks like they need help, offer them some. Never miss out on free food. Don't take an 8 AM class. grab all the free stuff from tables outside and in the Nigh, even if it means having several pairs of sunglasses. And do whatever it takes to get the free t-shirts they give out. Take advantage of the Wellness Center, even if it's just sitting on an exercise bike do something. Fill out as many scholarship applications as you can. Always check your e-mail. And keep up with your online work.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the parking situation. There aren't enough spaces for all of the students, and the parking permits limit you to only one or two lots. I have a housing permit because I live on campus and I got a ticket for parking in another lot, even though I live here and pay to park!
