Name: Adrien D. Glezil
Hometown: Union, New Jersey
What program are you in? Double major in Legal Studies (Pre-Law) and Criminal Justice; a senior.
Why did you choose NSU? NSU is among the few South Florida universities offering a pre-law major. Others offered political science, which wasn’t a route I was looking to pursue. The small class sizes did appeal to me because it would allow for more networking opportunities as opposed to other larger universities. Also, it was cost efficient.
What is the best part about being a Shark? The community support. The sense of community is not just a saying here, we truly are all part of the Shark family while attending this university and thereafter.
What’s your favorite NSU tradition? Homecoming Week.
What organizations and activities are you involved in? The President’s 64, Commuter Senator for Undergraduate Student Government Association, Orientation Team Leader, secretary of the Criminal Justice Club, and DJ G-Sharp at Radio X 88.5 FM.
What are you most passionate about? I am very passionate about school. I enjoy the late night studying, the class discussions; everything about learning attracts me. I am passionate when it comes to learning, whether academically or socially.
What made you decide to become an Orientation Leader? I had an amazing experience during my summer 2009 freshmen orientation. The program made sure students had personalized guidance and support. I wanted to have that effect on other students. I applied at the end of my freshmen year and have been with the program for the past three years.
What is your favorite class or who is your favorite professor? Stephen Ross Levitt [who teaches comparative politics and law at Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences], is such an engaging, and knowledgeable professor.
What is your favorite place on campus? The Alvin Sherman Library.
What are your career aspirations? I want to be a criminal defense attorney because I believe some people deserve a second chance, not to mention those wrongfully convicted.
What is a fun fact we should know about you? I am a good dancer, in my own special way.
