Overall I think UCO is an awesome school. It is my first semester here and I have felt really welcome. Anyone I have contacted has helped me in any way they could. If they could not assist me, they would find someone that could.

I did not enjoy my time at the University of Central Oklahoma. I chose UCO because it was one of two colleges in Oklahoma that offered a Bachelor's Degree in Photography. The alternative school was too expensive. I transferred to UCO as a Junior and found that living on campus with Freshmen and Sophomores was not a good fit. I also lived on campus my Senior year and was very homesick. It was hard to make friends because most people commuted to and from school and did not hang around campus after class. I think this college would be better suited to people from the Oklahoma City area or small towns. Having grown up on the other side of the state, this school was not a good choice for me.
