The Retail Society at the University of Florida was founded in the Fall of 2006 as a student organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities to students interested in retailing. The Society provides a network of students, faculty, and professionals to serve as a reliable information source about the retail industry. Membership is open to all majors in all colleges.
The primary purpose of the Retail Society is to develop a strong networking system and to educate students interested in seeking internships and careers in retailing. This is achieved through constant contact with knowledgeable, experienced students and with information sessions which allow recruiters to discuss their companies and opportunities.
