What makes our alumni network special?
Our alumni network is so involved with the law school. It is truly incredible! I worked as a Phonathon caller during the fall semester for the Office of Development and Alumni Affairs and a large percentage of the alumni that I spoke with took the time to ask about my experience at FSU and talk about the law school, student organizations, or offer career advice. Of my three mentors, two are alums and are still highly involved with the school. Having such a wide network of alumni who are willing to communicate with students and remain involved offers such a unique opportunity for students to engage with the legal community before leaving school.

Which College of Law student organization stands out to you and why?
Women's Law Symposium has been my favorite student organization at the College of Law. Through WLS, I had the opportunity to attend a reception where I networked with attorneys and judges. As a result of networking with a judge at this reception, I had the opportunity to sit in a courtroom and listen to criminal proceedings. Everyone from the state attorney to the public defenders came over to introduce themselves and offer advice about law school. As a member of the Moot Court team, I have learned to be a better advocate and I've been able to travel to compete.

What do you recommend to guests visiting Tallahassee?
There are so many! After four years of living in Tallahassee, I am still discovering new restaurants and events in Tallahassee. I would definitely have to say going to FSU football games. I grew up with FSU football, and to me, nothing could ever top the experience of going to our football games. I love the atmosphere at the stadium, and hands down, we have the best pre-game rituals in all of college football. I still get chills listening to a packed stadium of fans doing the War Chant. There's just nothing like it anywhere else. In terms of restaurants, it is really hard to beat the burgers at Monk's.

Fun fact about Jenna.
I can touch my tongue to my nose.
