Five Things Alumni Need to Know This Week – Aug. 6, 2018

UCF ChargeOn Tailgate

  1.  We’re headed to Chapel Hill this fall! UCF fans of all ages are invited to join us for the UCF ChargeOn Tailgate ahead of the UCF vs. UNC game. Tailgate admission includes a breakfast buffet, drinks, a retractable stadium banner and a spirit sticker. To register for the tailgate, learn more about the event and get parking/transportation details, visit ucfalumni.com/ChargeOnTailgate.

2. Over the weekend, we welcomed 3,700 graduates into the UCF alumni family. Among those who walked the stage Saturday were a first generation college student and mother, the proud daughter of Colombian immigrants, the manager of the Knights Pantry and a former Russian exchange student devoted to “saving humanity one day.” It’s safe to say that our graduates are nothing short of incredible.

3. More effort after a grueling practice? No thanks! Coach Heupel had a big surprise for the UCF Football team: a slip and slide, courtesy of the fire department. You’ve got to see this one for yourself!

4. Speaking of football, where are you watching the season opener against UConn? Hopefully, in the company of fellow Knights at a UCF watch party near you: www.ucfalumni.com/watchparties.

5. The fall semester is around the corner, and this year, UCF will celebrate its 50th anniversary of the first day of classes, so we want to hear from you! Alumni of all ages are encouraged to share throwback photos from their own first day as Knights. Photos and memories collected will be considered for use on UCF’s official social media platforms and news site, UCF Today. Please submit your photo by Aug. 15.
