College Spotlight: University of Central Florida

Personality Overload

If the (k)nightlife and knight puns aren’t enough to keep you entertained, UCF is constantly hosting big name performers. From comedians like Amy Schumer and John Mulaney, musicians like Wiz Khalifa, scientists like Bill Nye, and even presidential candidates like Donald Trump, there are constantly famous personalities that come to speak or perform at UCF.

Most of these shows are either free for students or very cheap which allows for many students to attend and then afterwards still have enough money to go out and get beers afterwards. For some more unconventional entertainment, students can look no further than the Free Speech lawn to hear from preachers, protesters, and everyone in between. Not only are major personalities constantly coming to UCF, there are a lot of personalities that have come out of UCF as well. Famous alumni include Daniel Tosh, Cheryl Hines, and Blake Bortles…just to name a few.

Win or Lose, We Still Booze

Speaking of Blake Bortles…we miss him. When Blake Bortles was starting quarterback, the Knights were able to defeat Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl. The year after Bortles went to the NFL….well….let’s just say that a downtown bar offered free beer until UCF won a football game. Let’s also say that the same downtown bar gave out free beer…till the end of the season.

But if you think that a little losing streak is something that could break down the spirits of fans, then you are wrong. It’s almost impossible to go on campus and not see someone tailgating on game day. Memory Mall, Lake Claire, Greek Row, there are many options for whatever tailgate experience you are looking for. Our majors may divide us, but on game days, we come together.


At the end of the day, U Can Finish. But do you really want to? When you start college you hear that “these will be the best four years of your life”. For some, those four years can end up being 3 or 5, or even 6. Eligible Summer graduates will often wait till Fall to graduate, just so that they can get just one more tailgate season in. Just one more semester of memories (or lack thereof). But good news! While you can go on from this place, your memories will continue to follow you for the rest of your life. Or so I’ve heard. But once I figure out if this whole pegasus superstition is true or not, then I can get back to ya.
