Where Are They Now? Meet COSSPP Alum Alyssa Barberis

What have you been up to since you graduated?

I graduated in Spring 2021 with a B.A. in International Affairs and Middle Eastern Studies. Since graduation, I was accepted to FSU College of Law! I spent my summer researching all about law school and reading all the books I could!

How did your degree in social science help inform your path?

As an undergrad, the material I learned in my courses inspired me to become an immigration attorney. The degree in International Affairs helped me learn about human rights and international law, among other things. I wanted to take the information I learned in the classroom and apply it to become a driving force for change in the world. 

What is your favorite memory or spot on campus?

My favorite spot on campus is the Heritage Museum in Dodd Hall! I always loved to peek inside in between classes to look at the stained glass windows.
