Five Things Alumni Need to Know This Week – July 30, 2018

UCF Fulbright Scholarships

1. Six UCF students were awarded Fulbright scholarships to participate in international exchange programs that strengthen international partnerships and address mutual goals for global concerns. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards around 1,900 grants each year for students to study in more than 140 countries worldwide.

2. After an incredible undefeated season, reigning American Athletic Conference champion UCF Football has been selected to repeat as the league’s No. 1 team in The American’s 2018 preseason media poll. In our totally unbiased opinion, we completely agree!

3. UCF basketball fans, rejoice! Our hoops head coaches have signed extensions to stay with the Knights for a while longer, with Coach Abe at the helm of the women’s team until the 2022-23 season, and Coach Dawkins leading the men’s team through the 2023-24 season.

4. This weekend, our UCF alumni family will grow by just a few thousand more grads. If you can’t attend commencement in person, tune in for the livestream on the official University of Central Florida YouTube channel.

5. Speaking of grads, we know that many of you venture outside of Orlando after crossing the stage. Don’t let distance keep you away from your black and gold roots! Join a local UCF alumni chapter or club in your area.
