JM Freshmen Get Connected at University of Central Oklahoma
Nine freshmen attended The University of Central Oklahoma Leadership Academy (UCOLA). “It was great meeting freshman from around the state and the opportunities that UCO provides for college,” JM participant Samuel De La Garza said.
UCOLA is a progressive program that strives to further develop Oklahoma ninth grade students to become leaders in their school and communities. UCOLA accomplishes this by providing first-rate training experiences that will allow each Academy participant to develop and enhance their own leadership abilities. It is also a great way for freshmen to be exposed to the University of Central Oklahoma and begin thinking about higher education.
Through workshops, activities, and discussions, students learn how to make a difference among their peers. Students also participate in a campus tour and a resource fair highlighting services and programs offered at UCO.
