Community Resources and Family Fun During COVID-19

We know these are unprecedented and difficult times, so we wanted to share with our alumni and friends free online resources for our Bronchos and future Bronchos. These resources, compiled by our very own Director of Alumni Relations Lauri Monetti, vary from virtual museum tours to community resources. We hope this list will help during this time of social distancing.

With the increased use of virtual platforms like Zoom, show off your Broncho pride with these UCO-Themed Zoom Backgrounds!

With more downtime at home, check out these coloring sheets ready to download.
