Some students enjoyed the fun they had with their friends as they experienced being on the campus.

Junior Emily Vega found that learning about the programs she was interested in and the college’s success rate was intriguing.
“The business building was amazing and the engineering building was great as well,” said Vega. “They explained a lot about their programs, how many students were successful, and their payroll after graduating from UCF.”
