The Cypress Dome Society is the University of Central Florida’s student literary organization. It is named after a feature of the landscape on the UCF campus. Bald cypress trees often grow in nearly perfect circles, or domes, with the larger trees in the middle where the deepest water of a swamp is, and the smaller trees surrounding the center ones. Our organization is names for these mysterious and beautiful natural features of the Florida landscape.
Some of our events and activities are:
- The Cypress Dome annual literary and visual arts magazine
- The Writers in the Sun visiting author series
- First Draft writing club
- other events, such as open mics, fund-raising drives, contests, and more!
