Runners and walkers of all ages raised money for the American Heart Association during the Greater Orlando Heart Walk at UCF.

The annual event is one of the most popular fundraisers at UCF, drawing students, alumni, faculty, staff and members of the community to benefit the charity.

Knightro and the UCF Spirit Squad helped kick off the event and welcomed participants as they crossed the finish line.

During the annual faculty welcome event in the Student Union, 200 new members joined the UCF academic community.

After a speech by President Hitt welcoming the class of 2019 at the annual convocation ceremony at CFE Arena, the new Knights gathered on Memory Mall for a group portrait.

The annual welcome ceremony for new students included a performance by the UCF Spirit Squad.

“The Knighting” marks the moment incoming first-year students officially become members of the UCF Knight community.

“Step Right Up: The Art of the Sideshow” at the UCF Art Gallery, July 16-Aug. 29, featured banners and other pieces celebrating the classic American carnival.

On Aug. 27, a reception featured a special appearance and book-signing by banner painter Johnny Meah, “The Czar of Bizarre.”
