Experience as A Member of The Fellows Society
The Fellows Society was a great opportunity for me as a student in the College of Law to interact and continue to learn from the larger graduate community at FSU. Too often we isolate ourselves in our own studies and specialities and forget about the wide variety of unique and groundbreaking research and learning that is happening right across campus. I look forward to continuing to be able to support the Fellows Society in whatever capacity possible now that I have graduated.
