Nineteen UCF students, a mix of undergraduate and graduate students, have been selected for UCF’s highest student honor.
The Order of Pegasus recognizes exemplary performance by undergraduate students in the areas of academic achievement, outstanding university involvement, leadership and community service. Graduate students are selected separately based on academic achievement, professional or community service, leadership and publication or research experiences.
Because of the breadth of accomplishments required for this award, the Order of Pegasus is the most prestigious and significant student award that can be attained at UCF.
The Order of Pegasus committee selected 19 students for this honor from 78 nominations.
The students selected held multiple memberships in LEAD Scholars (7), President’s Leadership Council (9), The Burnett Honors College (10), Greek organizations (6) and Student Government Association (2). There are two students from our partner DirectConnect institutions, Valencia College and Seminole State. There are seven male undergraduates, eight female undergraduates, one female master’s student, one male doctoral and professional student, and two female doctoral and professional students.
The inductees will be honored at an invitation-only ceremony in April. The names and a picture of the inductees will be added to the wall of the Pegasus Lounge, which is located on the second floor of the Student Union overlooking the Pegasus Ballroom. They also receive commemorative medals, Student Government Association scholarships and lifetime memberships to the UCF Alumni Association.
