Classes started today across Florida and new year means new changes.

Just south of Crooms, the University of Central Florida announced some interesting news as well on the first day of classes. UCF's enrollment is expected to surpass 52,000 this year, making it the largest university in the state. That means even more students will be at UCF than at the flagship University of Florida. UCF will also be joining The Ohio State University and Arizona State University as the three largest universities in the country. You can check out the full story here:

Crooms AoIT Alumni Community Scholarship Review Begins!

The review of the Crooms AoIT Alumni Community Scholarship applications begins today. Overall, we had a great rush of applicants and the review process is going to prove to be pretty darn strenuous, but our Scholarship Review Team has been prepped and is ready to go. The primary review should be done by the end of this weekend. If all goes according to plan, we should be selecting a recipient no later than Thursday evening and announcing the individual by Friday. All the applicants will be notified by e-mail of the outcome and we will also post the name of the winner here if approval is given by the recipient.

Good luck to all those that applied!
