UCO ANNOUNCES SUMMER 2014 GRADUATES
The University of Central Oklahoma congratulates the 563 students from throughout Oklahoma, the U.S. and the world who will complete their college degrees as the summer semester comes to a close. Of that number, Central received 490 undergraduate applications and 73 graduate applications.
A complete list of graduates, including their degree earned and major, organized alphabetically by hometown, may be downloaded for publication at www.uco.edu/photo/Summer2014Graduates.
Since Central does not hold a summer commencement ceremony, many of these students participated in the Spring 2014 ceremony.
Located just north of Oklahoma City in Edmond, Central is the state’s largest metropolitan university, serving more than 17,000 students pursuing degrees in 114 undergraduate and 65 graduate major areas of study, and is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Central prides itself as a smart investment for success, preparing future leaders in an opportunity-rich environment, with access to more than 200 student organizations and the internship, employment, entertainment and cultural offerings of the rapidly growing Oklahoma City metropolitan area.
Founded as a teachers’ college in 1890, Central considers itself an institution where teaching comes first, and, with a 19:1 student/faculty ratio, students can enjoy personal relationships with faculty and staff who are committed to transforming lives.
