Wiki Knights in Action:
- Wiki Knights Asked UCF Students About Textbooks. Here’s What They Said:In November 2021, we asked students on campus their thoughts on the cost of textbooks and experiences they have had with them. We want to share those thoughts from students, by students, to inform others of how they feel about the current system of buying and using textbooks.
- WIKI KNIGHTS STOPPED OPT-OUT!This is an archived collection of posts describing how with the help of many others, Wiki Knights was able to prevent UCF switching to an opt-out textbook billing policy.
- UCF student starts organization to end the need to purchase textbooksA UCF student is working alongside UCF faculty to jumpstart a new student organization called “WikiKnights” with the goal of eliminating the need for UCF students to purchase textbooks.
