Florida Technological University

Everyone is familiar with University of Central Florida and its sprawling campus that extends for what seems like miles at the intersection of Alafaya and University Blvd. Did you know that when the first students (around 1,950 of them) took their seats in October 1968 the school was known as Florida Technological University? Students and residents referred to the school as Florida Tech or FTU until the school was renamed in December 1978 to its current  moniker.
