“Experience gained in his extra-curricular leadership activities at FSU will help prepare him for the law career he intends to pursue.”
Matthew Mendendez is a leader who wants to become a lawyer. He has demonstrated his leadership capabilities by taking time out of his summer in 2005 to participate in the one week Leadershape conference held by the LEAD center at FSU.
In addition, Matthew was Assistant Family Relations Director for Dance Marathon, the University’s largest student-run Philanthropy. Every spring, hundreds of FSU students, including Matthew, pledge to remain standing for 32 consecutive hours to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network at Shand’s Hospital, and the FSU College of Medicine’s Pediatric Outreach Program. Matthew, in partnership with his fraternity, Tau Kappa Epsilon, helped raise an additional $6000 for Dance Marathon.
Experience gained in his extra-curricular leadership activities at FSU will help prepare him for the law career he intends to pursue. He has started in the direction of law by choosing a major of Criminology. Matthew, when investigating which university to attend on his pathway to law school, chose FSU predicated on the success and reputation of their College of Criminology and Criminal Justice. Upon graduation Matthew would like to become a juvenile defense lawyer.
When Matthew is not raising money or studying, he enjoys bowling,
attending movies at the Student Life Building, and reading on Landis
