Why did you choose the College of Law?
I chose the College of Law because of its location and reputation. The College of Law offers the best tools and programs to help students excel. Although part of a large university, it has the feel of a small liberal arts college and allows students to get to know one another, as well as the professors and staff.

Who has been your favorite professor since starting your legal education?
My favorite professor since starting my legal education is Professor Lee. Professor Lee went out of her way to make herself available to students and would explain concepts in different ways to help students understand. She had weekly study groups at a local coffee shop and would host tea time in between classes. Professor Lee is a great asset to the College of Law.

Which student services office has been particularly helpful to you during your time at the College of Law?
The Placement Office has been particularly helpful to me during my time at the College of Law. Since orientation, the Placement Office has given a detailed timeline of each year and how to become a better version of myself for applications. The Placement Office Career Development Handbook is the best book I read in 2015.

What do you recommend to guests visiting Tallahassee?
My favorite "Tallahassee recommendation" is definitely Grub Burger Bar. I take all my friends and family to Grub Burger Bar when they come into town. My second recommendation would be any of Tallahassee's parks.
