SEDS-UCF is continuing the process of recruitment. Our chapter hopes to begin meetings for the Fall 2012 semester sometime in early September depending on room assignment.
Being that it’s summer SEDS-UCF has been significantly less active than the rest of the year. However, we are still in the process of planning projects for the upcoming fall and spring semesters, and we are attending various UCF club fairs to recruit new members.

We also held a successful Yuri’s night complete with a screening of Apollo 13. Four of our members were able to attend a private tour of the […]

GWSS members attended the International Space […]
