Why did you choose the College of Law?

How have you interacted with our alumni network?
I have interacted with many alumni through the numerous informational lunch meetings held throughout the semester. I have also been able to interact with alumni through networking events. The alumni have been eager to connect with current law students.

What has been the best experience you have had at the College of Law thus far?
My best experience at FSU Law thus far has been making lifetime friends. There are so many amazing people and I quickly became close with many of them.

Which professor has been particularly helpful to you during your time at the College of Law?
Professor Atkinson has been particularly helpful during my time at the law school. He has made an effort to get to know each of his students personally. He had small groups at his house each week for pizza and hosted a Halloween party.
