Ever wonder what students do when they aren't in class, studying, or working? We spoke to some of the top student leaders here on campus to see what they enjoy doing in their downtime, both on and off campus.

Plans For After Law School:  
I would like to stay in the Tampa Bay area, preferably working in the Intellectual Property law field, but still unsure as to concrete plans.

Favorite Places to Unwind:
Pass-a-Grille Beach or Upham - it's a little more secluded than St. Pete Beach, it’s beautiful, and can definitely be relaxing especially around sunset. There are also some great restaurants nearby!

Marissa Marchena

Chief Stetson Ambassador for 2016-2017

Anticipated Graduation Year:
2017 (JD/MBA)

Plans For After Law School:  
Hopefully, I will work with a sports’ organization in a legal and business capacity. I am a JD/MBA student. This summer I am working for the USTA's (United States Tennis Association) General Counsel.

Favorite Places to Unwind:
On-campus I love to sit around the fountain outside of the cafe. I can usually find friends there and I can take a break from studying and class. Off campus I love to unwind at Hawaii Nail & Spa (BEST nail salon in the area), Sushi, Inc. (Downtown St. Pete.), Ceviche (Tuesday nights is half off tapas!) and any of the surrounding beaches (the sunsets are to die for!).

Nick Mitchell

Anticipated Graduation Year:
May 2016

Plans For After Law School:  
Attending UF’s Tax LLM Program.

Favorite Places to Unwind:
On campus, I like to unwind in the gym. The physical activity allows you to release any stresses that may have accumulated throughout the day and releases “happy endorphins” that keep you feeling great. Not to mention, everyone in there is very friendly, so the gym has become a small community of people I look forward to seeing every day. Off campus, I enjoy kayak fishing at Ft. Desoto. The water is relaxing, the fishing is great, and the dinner is even better!
