UCF Celebrates the Arts is an annual festival showcasing creativity, innovation and collaboration at the University of Central Florida. Now in its fifth year at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, the festival includes events and exhibitions spanning ten days.


The art and performances by UCF students and faculty celebrate the resilience of the human spirit and the triumph of overcoming adversity.

CAH Alumni Mentorship Program 

 

Established by the CAH Alumni Chapter and launching fall 2018, the CAH Alumni Mentorship Program plans to foster meaningful relationships between CAH alumni and current students. The program provides alumni with the opportunity to give back to their alma mater, expand their network and enhance their resume, while supporting the educational and professional development and experience of current CAH students. The program is specifically designed and coordinated by the CAH Alumni Chapter Board of volunteers. It is our belief that student enthusiasm and alumni support are crucial to the continued success and advancement of this mentorship program.
