It’s kind of a part of my testimony, but I originally wanted to go to Samford for undergrad because it’s where I thought God was leading me.

I chose Cumberland because of the collegial atmosphere that is present here. The “dog-eat-dog” mentality between law students simply does not exist at Cumberland.

I chose Cumberland because I wanted to go to school in a city that didn’t feel like another college town experience.

I am extremely family oriented and tend to thrive most in environments that make me feel at home. While touring Cumberland, the campus felt familiar and reminded me of everything I loved about my undergrad. The relationships between the staff, professors, and students were unmatched and everyone I talked to about the school only had positive things to say.

I chose Cumberland because of the reputation that Cumberland attorneys have nationally. I have always heard that Cumberland attorneys are great people.
