The Sophomore and Second Year Center hosted a Summer Social in the Academic Village Hercules Activity Center for Accelerated FTICs − students coming to UCF for the first time with 30 hours or more of college credit. The event, themed “Get Smart, Get Connected,” was attended by 36 students who met with academic advisors and learned about valuable academic resources and strategies for academic success.

Additionally, attendees listened to a student panel who discussed their experiences as to what helped them be successful in a Summer B session and following semesters. The panel engaged attendees in an active question and answer session.

The event began with an icebreaker, refreshments were served and attendees earned 500 LINK points which can be used at the end of semester LINK event. Student comments included: “It was informative. One of the best I’ve been to because it gave all my questions good answers” and “Great presentation, very educational.”
