SDES Online Resources


While all UCF classes have moved online and the campuses remain closed, the Division of Student Development and Enrollment Services is dedicated to continue providing Knights with services they can depend on. Below is a list of virtual services that SDES departments are offering to assist students.

Career Services is continuing to provide assistance to students including webinars, links to explore majors and careers, resume and interview help, job search sites or applying to graduate school. Additionally, students can schedule virtual meetings (phone or Zoom) with career counselors through Handshake’s appointment scheduling tool. For more information, visit career.ucf.edu/stayconnected.

The Creative School for Children (CSC) remains closed, however, staff are going above and beyond to assist families during this time. Every weekday between 11 a.m. to noon, the CSC distributes meals and snacks to support local families in need. In addition to food distribution, CSC is also offering weekly Zoom meetings to parents to allow the children to have continued communication with each other. They are also offering parent-teacher conferences.

Daily activities for students are posted on the CSC Sprouts YouTube channel.

Staying Engaged:
UCF Housing’s Residence Hall Association is launching a social media interaction series this week called “RHA Stays Social”. This consists of daily posts on RHA’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts with different topics each day: Music Monday, Tik Tok Tuesday, What to Watch Wednesday, Time Passers Thursday, Feel Good Friday, and Weekend Wellness. Submissions can be entered via a form sent to active RHA members.
Find RHA on social: @UCFRHA

RHA has also introduced Weekly Hangouts; an open Zoom event held every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. EST. The themes will vary, and each week will include ice-breakers and other random topics to help keep students connected. This initiative kicked off with “UCF Cribs,” an opportunity for students to show off their current rooms or spaces. The last hangout in the series will be a virtual showcase for students to feature a project, skill, talent, or anything else they want to show off. This showcase may also double up as a mini talent show, too!
