LINK events are not just fun and entertaining – they're profitable! Listed on the LINK website and in our app (Goosechase, LINK@UCF) are all the LINK-associated events. For each program a student attends (and checks in using the Goosechase app), they will receive LINK Loot. Students can earn LINK Loot until the end of each semester (Summer, Fall, and Spring) and then have the opportunity to use their Loot at various events for awesome prizes!
LINK events are open to all students, but only students new to UCF are eligible to earn LINK Loot. Being new to UCF means it is your first time here, either as a freshman or transfer student. LINK runs off of the academic calendar, meaning Summer, Fall, then Spring. If you start in Summer, you have three terms to earn and redeem LINK Loot. Fall gives you two opportunities, and Spring one. But don't worry, LINK Loot starts over each term, so everyone is on the same page!
How Can I Get It?
To receive LINK Loot, simply attend programs listed on the website or in our app and check in using the app! You don't have to search very hard to find a LINK program because there is practically one occurring every day – just check our list of programs!
Where Can I Use It?
Students can use their accrued LINK Loot at each end-of-semester event. Prizes at events typically include TVs, Xboxes, movies, video games, digital cameras, theme park tickets, UCF Spirit items, and more! There will even be a chance to win a $1,500 tuition scholarship from SGA by participating in LINK events during the Fall term! LINK points expire at the end of each term, so make sure to cash them in!
LINKO is LINK's fun and fast-paced version of BINGO! Students receive LINKO cards at check-in and play classic rounds of four corners, filling in a row, creating letters and more for a chance to win great prizes. First to win must stand up and yell LINKO!
LINK Auction (Fall)
The LINK Auction is the ultimate bidding war! Prepared with paddles and LINK Loot, students bid on prizes in an exciting end to the LINK year. Paddles up!
SGA Tuition Scholarship (Fall)
The Fall term also brings with it the chance to win a $1,500 tuition scholarship provided by SGA! In November, an application will go out to eligible students with the scholarship details and how to apply.
LINK Lottery (Spring)
The LINK Lottery provides students with tickets based on your accumulated LINK Loot that you then choose how to use! There will be several stations of prize options students can divide their tickets between, and the more Loot you have, the better your chances at winning!
How Many Points Do I Have?
Students are encouraged to check their credited LINK Loot via the Goosechase app or the My Loot page. Points are typically credited to student accounts after five business days. If students notice a program is missing after this time-frame, they can access a "LINK Loot Dispute Form" on the My Loot page.
