Get Smart, Get Connected
SSYC Summer Social
The Sophomore and Second Year Center held a Summer Social on July 24 for Accelerated FTICs (students coming to UCF for the first time with 30 hours or more college credits). The event, themed “Get Smart, Get Connected,” was held in the Academic Village’s Nike Programming Center.
Academic advisors from SSYC including staff from Student Academic Resource Center and Career Services met with 38 student attendees. They learned about valuable academic resources, strategies for academic success, and heard from a student panel who discussed their prospective as to what helped them be successful in the Summer B session and following semesters.
The panel answered questions followed by an interactive Tic-Tac-Toe game. Students earned 1,000 LINK points for attending. Comments included:
- “I loved the coordinators, their energy, and the educational games.”
- “I’m very glad I came out.”
- “The student panel was more than helpful.”
