UCF’s student-run radio station and DJ service, Knightcast, teamed up with the Recreation and Wellness Center to hold a series of pool parties every Friday afternoon during the Summer B semester. Each week, 200 to more than 400 Knights attended the pool parties for some fun in the sun.

Knightcast kept the parties energized with DJs playing music while the Street Team organized various games for students to play, including pool volleyball, limbo, hula hoop and dance contests. Students had the opportunity to win a variety of prizes such as sunglasses, headphones, and movie and concert tickets. Freshmen received Link Loot for attending the event that can be used at LINK Summer B Lottery. Special treats included snow cones provided by the Campus Activities Board.

“Many new freshmen attended the parties, and it was a great way to show them more of the ways to get involved, have fun and make new friends,” said Bianca Saragusti, Knightcast Street Team member.

Even though there are only two more Friday pool parties left for this summer, Knightcast continues to host events throughout the school year including the annual Battle of the DJs held in the spring.

Knightcast is the nonprofit, student-run Internet radio station and live event DJ services at UCF. Funded by the Student Government Association, Knightcast provides students the opportunity to be radio personalities and live event DJs as well as participate in station management.
