“As a businessman I’m looking forward to collaborating with the highly-ranked Broad Business School--which is just across the street!”

“Law school is extremely tough, but I am at a great institution,” said Jonathan Arias. “The school is organized and runs like a well-oiled machine. This makes it very easy to focus on schoolwork.”

Jonathan was attracted to the reputation of MSU and the possibility of a JD/MBA with the business school. “Plus I felt that MSU Law did a really good job of engaging minorities,” he said. “I feel like people care.” After joining the Law College, he found support in a variety of places.

“The Academic Success Program helped me improve my academic skills. The Office of Student Affairs was vital in retaining my sanity by providing a place to vent frustrations and bounce ideas. The law librarians were always helpful and did anything they could to answer questions. And Mary in Diversity Services remains one of the most caring, hard-working, caring individuals I have ever met,” Jonathan said.
