Laura Nelson, Miss America 2007

"UCO is more than just a university to me. It is home. From professors to staff members, everyone at Central is willing to sacrifice for students to ensure their success. My education has opened doors to an amazing career in broadcast news and many other doors to opportunities that are only possible because of Central. I am very blessed and so grateful to be a Broncho!”
