UCF's Race to Space
Remember Ruben Nunez, ’11? We featured him as an alumni spotlight earlier this year, and explained that his company, Earthrise Space, formed Omega Envoy, one of 22 teams competing to be the first to land a robot on the surface of the moon, hoping to win $30 million in Google’s Lunar X PRIZE competition.
Since then, Omega Envoy (made up of numerous UCF alumni and students) has been featured in the planetarium dome show “Back to the Moon for Good,” which is being shown in 80 locations in 19 countries. Nunez and his team have also been awarded the Congressional Rising Star in Technology, in recognition of their success and benefit to the regional technology community.
To the moon, Knights!

The subject matter can get a bit raunchy, and the occasional bodily function may slip through the airwaves, but what Orlando rock fans tune in for are the on-air personalities and guitar-laden music.
No Growling Tummies!
This year, the UCF Alumni Association partnered with FAIRWINDS Credit Union to help feed students in need through the Knights Helping Knights Pantry. FAIRWINDS matched each 100 pounds of food collected with a $100 donation. Since we collected 601.7 pounds of food, the pantry received all of that — plus $600! Thank you to everyone who donated food, and thank you to FAIRWINDS Credit Union, for helping us keep students from going hungry this holiday season!
