Dean Barton welcomes 110th entering class

Dean April Barton welcomed the 110th entering class to our School of Law on Tuesday, August 17, 2021. She introduced the class to the leadership team and gave advice in navigating the educational journey of law school.

She outlined six guideposts for success, including nurturing and growing a purpose. Dean Barton said, "Cultivate your purpose while you are here. Your purpose is your why. Your purpose will guide you and point you in the right direction during good times and tough times. Goals are incredibly important--set goals, reach them, and then reach higher. But goals are not your purpose. You can reach goals and still feel lost. Understand how you want to impact this world, what you want to bring to this world, and allow your legal education to set you on that path."
