University of Fort Lauderdale Set to Host 2021 Fall Kickoff and Orientation

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The University of Fort Lauderdale will welcome in the 2021 semester with the UFTL 2021 Fall Kickoff and Orientation. The Kickoff will be on August 14 at Central Broward Park, while the orientation will be on the campus of UFTL in the ballroom.

The orientation will be from 11 am – 1 pm, open to all students. This event will have speakers from the different departments on campus and a chance for you to meet your advisors and set up your student email accounts and get your new student IDs.

Each student that attends the orientation will receive a coupon for five dollars off at one of the food trucks at Central Broward Park at 3700 NW 11th pl, Lauderhill, Fla. 33311. We will have two food trucks to choose from; Bad Boys BBQ and Island Jerk Joint. We will also have Sweeties Italian ice for dessert.

The Kickoff will begin at 2 pm, with a message from Chancellor Henry B. Fernandez. You will hear from the Provost, Dr. Carter Taylor, the athletic administration, and coaches during the event.

We will have time to visit with the coaches and administration to ask questions while getting something to eat from one of the food trucks. We will wrap up the day with student-athletes playing games against each other. There will be gifts given away at the event.
