Bravo, Professor Mohamed Bingabr!

Recently, Professor Bingabr helped prevent a student’s vehicle from rolling and crashing into the Math and Computer Science building by using his own personal vehicle as a barricade. Professor Bingabr could have easily driven away and allowed the student’s vehicle to roll through the parking lot, but instead risked damage to his own car to prevent a major accident. Thankfully, neither vehicle incurred any damages.  

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.
