What drew you to the department?

“Georgia State’s location in a multi-cultural metropolis and strong faculty research attracted me to the program. The Public Law faculty are the strongest in the nation and I believe that I can develop into a strong researcher and scholar at Georgia State.”

What is your favorite GSU memory?

“My favorite memory so far is the Prospective Students Weekend. All of the faculty and students were super friendly and open to all questions I had. This let me know that GSU was the right school for me.”
