Summer B students do not have to wait until fall to get connected to UCF. “Summer Knights 2012” is here to provide students a calendar of programs, events and resources to make that connection now. In an effort to take an all-inclusive integrated approach to providing both educational and social opportunities to UCF’s incoming students, Housing and Residence Life partnered with many departments within Student Development and Enrollment Services.
