“Professors mostly have an open door policy and are truly dedicated to helping each of the students succeed.”

Sarah Khoury chose MSU College of Law for the dual degree option with Ottawa and the school’s Big Ten name. She described MSU as “a great campus, with great professors, great people, and so many resources available to students.” She added, “Professors mostly have an open door policy and are truly dedicated to helping each of the students succeed.”

Sarah participated in the Immigration Clinic and said, “It has been by far the best experience I’ve had since at MSU. I assisted clients that were attempting to petition for permanent residency in the U.S. I was able to better my client communication and advocacy skills. I also was able to appear before a judge.”

She also serves as President of the Middle Eastern Student Association and credits Diversity Services as instrumental in helping the organization members host events. “With their assistance, students are able to immerse themselves in their own culture, while also teaching those in the greater MSU community. Diversity Services truly does all they can to help build a diverse student population,” Sarah said.

For Sarah, serving and representing her fellow students has been a journey up the SBA ladder. “I started as an at-large class rep my 1L year,” she said. “Then became 2L class rep 2L year, and now going into my third year I was elected Vice-President. SBA has been such a big part of my law school experience. The SBA works through a variety of committees and through individual initiatives to make positive changes to campus policy, engage in dialogue with members of the faculty and administration, and host events for the MSU College of Law community. It also allows for many great events that occur outside of the law school and give students even more opportunities to network with those practicing attorneys in the area.”
