The audience gives a standing ovation to the new students for the College of Medicine at the University of Central Florida on Monday, August 3, 2009. More than 900 people watched as the first students took part in a special "white coat ceremony," a tradition for first-year medical students. Every student in the university's inaugural class is receiving a full four-year scholarship that's paid for entirely through community donations.
