Now, more than half a century later, the University of Central Florida has grown to one of the largest public universities in the nation with enrollment exceeding 66,000 students from 157 countries.
Under President John C. Hitt’s leadership, UCF has experienced unprecedented growth, momentum and prominence with 12 campuses including a downtown Orlando expansion, a college of medicine, a top athletics program, and a pathway to preeminence.
