New Student - Adriana Lopez

Jessica R. Alexander, J.D., M.L.S., Reference Librarian

The big perk of my job is the chance to meet our students. Their varied backgrounds and accomplishments speak to the appeal of law study for individuals from many walks of life.

I just met a new student named Adriana Lopez (Brown, 2004, Anthropology) from the Rio Grand valley whose love is acting and dance. She and her companion, Danny Ortiz, started a band called the Blue Rio Band, consisting of various members of Danny's family. Adriana plans to keep up her dance abilities by taking modern dance classes at the Houston Ballet Academy.

It is not unusual to meet a student with artistic accomplishments. In the past a group of students, led by alum Willie D. Powells, (2004) who was both an engineer and a violinist, even formed a musical group.

Look for more of these short profiles in the future.
