Past Events

Wine-Down at Urban Flats | Oct. 24, 2013

The UCF Young Alumni Chapter hosted an awesome mix-and-mingle event at Urban Flats in Downtown Orlando. More than 60 guests enjoyed unlimited wine, beer and appetizers; and we even raffled off tickets to the Homecoming game against Houston. It was a great evening of young alumni and Knight Pride!


Black & Gold Takeover | Nov. 8, 2013

Hosted by the UCF Young Alumni Chapter, the Black & Gold Takeover was an exciting way to celebrate UCF's Golden Homecoming and get pumped for the big game against Houston. It was a KNIGHT to remember!
