Undergraduate Real Estate Society
Undergraduate students frequently inquire about what part they could play in the activities of the Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies. The interaction between the Real Estate Society and the Center should prove mutually beneficial in many ways and offer an engaging answer to students posing this question.
For the students, the Society provides career and industry information while fostering opportunities for internships and future employment. Tutoring undergraduates in real estate topics, offering seminars in career placement strategies, an hosting meetings to discuss real estate topics and other initiatives are among the many activities.
For the Center, the Society offers a point of contact for the industry to identify students who are serious about careers in real estate. In addition, it is hoped that the Center will view Society members as those who can be counted on to provide more depth and assistance in supporting regional and statewide events led by the Center.
The Society offers a sense of identity to undergraduate real estate students at the University of Florida, especially those who have declared the Real Estate Minor.
The mission of the Undergraduate Real Estate Society is to actively create, support and enhance the academic experiences and pre-professional opportunities for students interested in Real Estate.
The main ways we hope to provide value to students in the coming academic years are through meeting discussions, company tours and travelling to professional association meetings, bringing real estate professionals to campus to speak, compiling informational resources useful to real estate students, and taking advantage of the University of Florida's extensive real estate network to provide opportunities for learning.
