What do you feel is unique about the College of Law?
The strong sense of community at FSU Law draws a stark contrast from stories I had previously heard about law school. For example, professors here are very personable and will take time to sit with students in the common areas and get to know us on a personal level. Also, students here genuinely want to help each other despite the innate competitiveness of law school and commonly form study groups to work together on reviewing material.
What has been your most challenging experience in law school thus far?
I participated in the Winter Write-On competition for membership to the law school’s journals. I spent almost all my time for the first part of winter break writing and editing a fifteen-page paper, which was grueling, but great for honing my work ethic and research skills. It was also one of my most rewarding experiences by far because I am currently an invitee of the Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law!
Give one fun fact about yourself.
I was a volunteer Guardian ad Litem in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit for the year between undergraduate and when I began attending FSU Law. If you are interested in the program, please feel free to ask me about it! It was such a fulfilling experience and gave me insight into the potential healing power of a job in the legal field.
Why did you become a Student Ambassador?
As an orientation leader in my undergraduate career, I learned that connecting with current students and hearing about their experiences can be essential to a prospective student's decision-making process. I genuinely enjoy the opportunity to engage with others and share the feeling of community, which is exactly what I get to do as a Student Ambassador. It also allows me to give back to the College of Law by sharing my positive experiences with prospective students and helping those students see what I see in FSU Law.
