  • We also partner with SGA to offer “Cram 4 Exams” events at the end of Spring and Fall semesters, featuring free food, school supplies, study sessions, and other goodies.
  • We occasionally provide space in the library for student workshops offered by the Office of Diversity Initiatives, Student Services, or other UCF departments.
