The Sophomore and Second Year Center held a Summer Social on July 2 for Accelerated FTICs (students coming to UCF for the first time with 30 hours or more college credits) at Academic Village in the Nike Programming Center.

The theme was “Get Smart.”  A total of 63 students attended and met with academic advisors from SSYC, plus support staff from the Student Academic Resource Center, Career Services and Study Abroad.

They learned about valuable academic resources, strategies for academic success, and heard from a student panel who discussed their experiences at UCF and gave advice to incoming students. The panel also included an active question and answer session, followed by an interactive Trivia game played by the students attending this session.

Refreshments were served, numerous prizes awarded, and students earned 1,000 LINK points for attending [LINK points can be used at the end of the semester]. Student comments included: “I really enjoyed the event,” “It was great,” and “Very helpful.”

SSYC is an office in the Division of Student Development and Enrollment Services.
