In recent years, the College of Law has seen many of its law students garner positions in the Student Senate, to inform and promote the successes and needs of the law school community in Orlando. The FAMU main campus, where the Student Government Association (SGA) holds its meetings, is located several hours north in Tallahassee. According to Williams, serving on the Court allows her to bridge a gap between the main campus and the law school.
“It’s easy to feel we are on an island since we are in Orlando,” explained Williams. “But I have to make connections with people that are on the main campus to do my part.”
As a FAMU graduate, Small holds a similar outlook in his contribution to his alma mater.
