Student Philanthropy Profiles


Clayton Bush


Gulf Breeze, FL

Post-graduation plans 

My goal is to attend law school after I graduate with my bachelor’s degree in Family, Youth, and Community Sciences and Public Relations. 

Why are you proud to be in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences?

The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences truly cares about its students and faculty members. Upon switching into CALS, I was immediately accepted with open arms, which I think sets CALS apart from the rest. Not only is CALS welcoming, but it is a family. I look forward to growing and changing with CALS as I navigate the rest of my college experience!

How are you involved on campus?

I am a Director for oSTEM’s PiCALS, the Chair of Promotion for GatorDays, Assistant Director of the Florida Future Leadership Program, a Florida Alternative Breaks Site leader for the Brown Center for Leadership and Service, a member of the Reitz Union Board of Managers, and a Content Assistant for Strike Magazine.

How has philanthropy affected you?

Philanthropy has greatly helped me make it through college financially so far and has also allowed me to be as involved as I am on campus. Philanthropy has helped me get to where I am today and I am so grateful for it.

Why should alumni give back to CALS?

Alumni serve as the backbone to the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. Without them, many students would struggle throughout their collegiate experience to afford even basic necessities.

Behind every gift, there’s a story. A proud donor, a grateful recipient and far-reaching impacts impossible to measure.
