NEO Dates – June 2022

Jill Lynch-Silva, Talent Development Specialist

Please take notice that UCO will be observing Juneteenth on Monday, June 20th. This means the dates for New Employee Orientation will be on June 6th and June 21st (Tuesday). We look forward to meeting all our latest and greatest additions to the UCO team.

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.
