The Division of Student Development and Enrollment Services’ First Year Advising and Exploration held its annual Knights Knowledge Expo on January 27, with over 150 UCF students in attendance. The 2016 Knights Knowledge Expo is an initiative to introduce Spring 2016 admitted students to UCF departments, offices, student organizations and resources that will help them succeed and prepare them for the future.
FAIRWINDS Credit Union sponsored the event, which featured pizza, drinks and 25 departments and organizations that distributed information about their services and programs. UCF spirit prizes including a UCF umbrella, banner, tumbler, hat and blanket provided by First Year Experience were awarded to three students selected from a chance drawing.
Malaika Cesar-Nemorin, a Spring 2015 admitted student who attended, said the event was, “great because I was able to connect with different organizations that I wanted more information about.” Cesar-Nemorin also commented that because she was a spring admit last year she could, “see how helpful the event is for students that start in the spring because you’re able to get information about a lot of different resources that UCF has to offer.”
This event was one of many that FYAE has organized to assist spring admitted students in becoming more connected to UCF and counts as one of the qualifying events for the $1,000 SGA Spring Admit Scholarship.
