We’ve set the bar high
and you keep raising it

At UF, we take great students and help them achieve greater. More than 96 percent of incoming freshmen score above the national average on standardized exams. In fact, students applying for our fall 2016 freshman class had average 4.35 G.P.A. and an average S.A.T. score of 1919. With this level of talent, it’s no wonder we’re leading the world in graduating those who will soon be changing it.

Robert Felder

Warrington College of Business + UF/IFAS
Fourth-year student

After seeing thousands of poverty-stricken children during a visit to Bangladesh, Robert Felder was determined to find a way to make better clothes available to kids. He created Bearbottom Clothing to sell affordable, high-quality shorts online and then use the revenue to fund the production in Bangladesh. A double major (business management and food & resource economics) at UF, Felder went on to launch the 2 Bearbottoms program at his company, which donates one pair of shorts to a child in need for every pair sold online. He is also serving as 2016 homecoming chairman.
