I set up a website on Wordpress, but I want to remove the slogan "proudly powered by WordPress and buddypress" from the footer. Is there a way to do this? I feel that it would make my site look much more professional.

I found a link to help you remove that footer:

There is also a similar thread about removing footers for the GeneratePress theme, and the solution is very similar.

Hope this helps.

There are a few ways to do this:

Remove the Footer Code from the PHP Source FIle

  1. Go to Appearance > Editor and then open footer.php, which should look something like this.  
  2. Find the part of that file's code that is used to generate the footer, delete it, and save the file. It should look something like this:
<div id="site-generator" role="contentinfo">
	<?php do_action( 'bp_dtheme_credits' ); ?>
	<p><?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by <a href="%1$s">WordPress</a> and <a href="%2$s">BuddyPress</a>.', 'buddypress' ), 'http://wordpress.org', 'http://buddypress.org' ); ?></p>
</div>

This is the best solution and will fully remove the footer. 

CSS Hack

The default HTML to show the "Proudly powered by WordPress and BuddyPress" footer credit looks like this:

<div id="site-generator" role="contentinfo">
  <p>Proudly powered by <a href="http://wordpress.org">WordPress</a> and <a href="http://buddypress.org">BuddyPress</a>.</p>
</div>

You can add this snippet to your site's CSS file to make the footer hidden from users:

#site-generator { display:none; }

Note that this is a suboptimal solution, since the HTML is technically stilli in the page, but for all intents and purposes, it is gone.
