The University of Central Florida (UCF) Forum is a weekly series of opinion columns presented by the UCF News & Information. The columns are the opinions of the writers, who serve on the UCF Forum panel of faculty members, staffers and students for a year. A new column is posted each Wednesday at UCF Today and then broadcast between 7:50 and 8 a.m. Sunday on WUCF-FM (89.9).
