Welcome to the University of Central Florida!
UCF is an exceptional place, and many possibilities for professional and personal growth await you. Work hard in your classes and participate fully in extracurricular activities, and you will be rewarded with an excellent education along with experiences that will enrich your life.
Our classrooms, laboratories, and studios provide excellent venues for academic growth. But you will also learn important lessons when you volunteer to help others, play sports, get involved in student government, and participate in any of the numerous clubs and organizations on campus.
This is an exciting time to be a student at UCF. Our academic programs are setting the standard for institutions of higher education, our faculty members are nationally renowned for their teaching and research, our academic service-learning program is among the largest in the nation, and our athletic teams compete with the best in the country.
As you seize the opportunities at UCF, focus on reaching your full potential. Make the UCF Creed an integral part of your value system: practice personal honesty, cherish learning, respect the rights of every individual, enrich the human experience, and strive toward the highest standards of personal performance. In short, conduct yourself on campus and in the community to bring distinction to you and to our university.
UCF faculty members and staff members are here to help you to learn, to grow, and to excel. Upon graduation, you will join the more than 281,000 alumni whose lives have been enhanced by their UCF experience.
I wish for you much success and happiness during this coming year. Enjoy UCF, and go Knights!
