  • FRE QUIZ Bowl earns 3rd and 4th Place at AAEA
    Congratulations to the 2014 Quiz Bowl team who have earned 3rd and 4th place honors at the National Agricultural and Applied Economics Association (AAEA) Quiz Bowl completion in Minneapolis!  As you know, these students practice throughout the year, including summers. They and their faculty coaches, Dr. Lisa House and Dr. Maria Bampasidou, are to be commended for giving their all. It takes a lot of energy, determination, perseverance and butterflies in the stomach to compete in this prestigious tournament.  Our students were excellent representatives of FRE, CALS and the University of Florida.
