UCF Profile

Here is a profile, courtesy of Wikipedia, of my Alma matter, UCF:

The University of Central Florida (UCF), located in Orlando, Florida, is a member institution of the State University System of Florida. As of 2005, UCF is the largest undergraduate public university in Florida and the second university in the state by total enrollment, trailing the University of Florida by fewer than 5,000 students. UCF is also the seventh largest university in the nation as of Fall 2005; total enrollment included 45,090 students, consisting of 7,720 freshman; 6,019 sophomores; 9,899 juniors; 13,994 seniors; and 7,163 graduate students. [2] UCF awards bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and doctorates, as well as certificates and specialist degrees. The main campus is located approximately 13 miles east of downtown Orlando and 55 miles west of Daytona Beach. The university also has twelve satellite campuses in eastern central Florida, though none are as large as the 1,415 acre (5.73 kmĀ²) main campus.

UCF's official colors are gold and black, the various sports teams go by the name of "Golden Knights" and the official mascot is a gold-armored black knight named Knightro, who is sometimes accompanied by his associate Glycerine. The UCF academic logo, however, is Pegasus.

The University of Central Florida is listed in “The Best 361 Colleges: 2006 Edition” by The Princeton Review.[3] The Princeton Review’s recognition comes as the academic quality of UCF students continues to rise. Freshmen admitted in Fall 2005 posted average SAT scores of 1178, ACT scores of 26 and high school GPA of 3.62.
