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.

Take the LIGO experiment: it successfully detected gravitational waves from the collision of two black holes. William & Mary had two researchers on the LIGO paper — and one was an undergraduate. That’s not so unusual: William & Mary undergrads often appear as co-authors on papers published in peer-reviewed journals. Closer to home, a group of student geologists are working to rewrite the geological history of a portion of central Virginia with the . Geological Survey, and are well on their way to publication as undergraduates.
