OKC Pride Festivals

Rebecca M. Quoss-Moore, Assistant Professor & President of 2SLGBTQIA+ Faculty Staff Association

UCO will be represented at both OKC Pride festivals this June. The 2SLGBTQIA+ Faculty Staff Association is coordinating a table for the Pride on 39th Festival, June 3-5, and the Center is organizing a table for OKC Pridefest at Scissortail Park, June 24-26. Offices across campus are contributing materials to showcase UCO’s community involvement, recruitment efforts, and upcoming events. Drop by our tables at either events to say hello!

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.
