Student Awards

We like to win!

UCO design students have successfully won more ADDY awards than any other design school in the nation. In 2015 alone, our students won 105 ADDY awards – in 2014, we won over 90! Not only do our students enter the American Advertising Awards, but they also enter competitions such as Graphex and AIGA Flux. Students also submit work (not only have they submitted, buy many have been published) into publications such as Print, How, and CA. What can we say? We like to win!
