"What's a Student Alumni Association?"
We're glad you asked! 4EVER KNIGHTS (4EK) is the first stop on your journey to the UCF Alumni Association. That means we're here to for you during your college years to help you through the process and prepare for the years after. We connect our members with fellow Knights and UCF grads through social events, networking opportunities and development workshops.
It's a fun way to meet new people, learn professional skills and become familiar with life after graduation while still enjoying the perks of being a college student.
Once you graduate, you are automatically a part of the UCF Alumni Association (at no cost). As 4EVER KNIGHTS alumni, you'll already be a step ahead! Find out what the UCF Alumni Association can do for you.
Sunday, Aug. 18 | UCF Memory Mall
Our 4EVER KNIGHTS Ambassadors welcomed more than 3,000 new Knights during Welcome Week — many of who took part in the Welcome Week Photo, a new tradition, on Memory Mall. We'd like to thank everyone who participated and helped us create a new tradition for our university!
Movie Knight Out
Tuesday, Sept. 19 | The Oviedo Mall
Dinner, a movie and transportation – all for $5. Where else can a student get a deal as awesome at that nowadays? Movie Knight Out is our most popular event of the fall semester. This year, Knights enjoyed dinner at the food court of the Oviedo Mall and then headed to the movie of their choice. The brave students witnessed the terror of Insidious 2, while the rest laughed it up at The Family. With over 460 students in attendance, we are proud to report that this was our most successful MKO to date!
Family Weekend Brunch
Sunday, Sept. 29 | UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center
College may be the time to be independent, but we'd be lying if we said we didn't miss our families! 4EK was honored to host Family Weekend Brunch to conclude the Family Weekend 2013. We had great food and festivities, including a life-sized Jenga game, corn-hole and a photobooth! Thank you to all our members and their families who attended.
UCF vs. Louisville Watch Party
Oct. 18 | BurgerU
Our Knights may have traveled to Louisville for the big game, but we traveled to a recent on-campus favorite, BurgerU, to watch them play. The scene was loud, proud and full of Knight Pride. The highlight of the Knight: witnessing the biggest win in UCF history!
Alumni Speaker Series: Chris Phillips, '97, '01
Oct. 22 | UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center
Chris Phillips, '97, '01, was the first speaker of our Alumni Speaker Series. As a UCF grad and the senior director of Finance and Strategy for Darden, we were eager to hear his expert insight into the world of the successful college graduate. Chris discussed life at Darden, tips for success and how to create a successful resume. We appreciate his time and are looking forward to our next speaker!
