Over the next 4 months, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) will be updating the campus antivirus software on all UCO-owned computers. We will be seamlessly replacing Symantec Endpoint Protection with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. This will occur in phases and be coordinated with all UCO techs. Ongoing communications will be targeted to your area of operations or your college throughout this multi-phased implementation. The only action required by you will be a computer restart when prompted. 

For more information, check out the Microsoft Defender Antivirus knowledge base article. If you have questions, contact the UCO Service Desk at or by phone at 405-974-2255.

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.
