Hi, I'm Shirley Jefferson. I'm the Associate Dean for Student Affairs and diversity here at Vermont law school. I'm also an associate professor, welcome.
You know, Vermont Law School is the best law school in the whole world. We are located in this beautiful rural mountain top school. Students love it here. When students want the city life, they go to Montreal, they go to Boston, they go to New York, but a lot of students like to stay here and enjoy this countryside. When they are here, especially doing winter time, Our students can ski, snowboard.
In the summer, they go canoeing, hiking, kayaking, fishing camping. So you have a great time here. When students are not doing all of that, our students are working very hard on events and conferences and symposiums here. Our Student Bar Association, which represents all of our students here have about 30 or 40 groups that are under their umbrella. Not only do they put on conferences and symposiums, they go to conferences themselves. We pay for them to go to conferences in other cities, and sometimes other countries and just have a great time networking. And a lot of times they come back with jobs. But also there are some informal groups here.
The student ambassadors, who work on the my supervision. They are here. They help with orientation. They help with the admissions office, taking students on tours. They are peer counselors. The Academic Success Program, have mentors who could help you with your academic studies. We do everything that we can to support our students. You know, we have a great fitness center here too, because we're worried about your well being, you know, you gotta keep fit. You just can't study all the time. We have classes there. We have spin. We have zumba, I go to zumba. We have yoga. We have quite a lot of other activities. You know, our students who come here are really involved in social justice activities, and helping the most needed members of our societies.
Our students do a lot of public service work. Our faculty are dedicated in their service here and dedicated to us students. Our faculty would be to one on one. They have students over to their homes for dinners. And they just go all out of their way to make sure that our students feel a part of this great community that we have here. And we our community. If students see that you're not in class, they're gonna call you. They got to email you to see if you're okay. And our students are always looking out after each other. We're looking for the next generation of leaders. So come on, if you haven't been to Vermont, come on to Vermont law school. We are waiting on you. Thank you.
