Public Affairs Task Force Higher Education Day Capital Visit

This is a great opportunity for students to meet with their legislators. As representatives of UCO, students will discuss legislation impacting higher education and advocate for UCO. The wonderful people (staff and students alike) who work with the Public Affairs Task Force will adequately prepare you before you meet with your representatives so there is no need to feel nervous. Email for more information or to sign up. Be sure to include your first and last name and your registered voter address in the email so they can pair you with your personal legislators. If you are not a registered voter, that is fine; just be sure to let them know in the email. If you would like to become a registered voter, swing by the Center for Civic Engagement Office in Thatcher 121C to pick up a voter registration form. The current tentative time frame for this event is 7:30-3:30. After meeting at 7:30, students will load into a charter bus and head to the Oklahoma State Capitol. The Public Affairs Student Task Force will provide free Hideaway Pizza at the end of the day. You will also be provided a letter of participation. You must be signed up by February 3rd.

Buddy Broncho made his first appearance in UCO's own newspaper The Vista. It was the October 3, 1932, issue where a Broncho appears wearing a UCO football uniform. He has appeared numerous times throughout the years from local Edmond papers in the 60's to state-wide papers in the 80's. The commissioning of the first ever live mascot appears in UCO's 1979 Bronze Book where Buddy Broncho made his first public appearance at Homecoming. Since that time, Buddy has been a fixture at UCO events and in the hearts of UCO students.
