Rock N Roll ‘Chos—UCO Homecoming 2023

Over the last decade, Roll ‘Chos has become not just the students’ rally cry but has a favorite saying to show Broncho Pride. From learning how to Roll Your ‘Chos at orientation, to Roll ‘Chos being on football players' jerseys, the Central community has embraced this beloved saying. The Homecoming Activities Board hopes to highlight music and school spirit to bring students, faculty, staff and alumni together for UCO's Homecoming.
