Hi there! My name is Whitney Novak, and I am a third-year law student from Shawnee, Kan. I am proud to have spent my four undergrad years here at the University of Kansas, where I graduated with a degree in journalism with a minor in History. While at KU, I was involved in Student Senate and my sorority, Kappa Delta, as well as attending every KU basketball game I possibly could.
As a junior, I had the incredible opportunity to spend a semester interning in Washington, D.C., in the Office of Presidential Correspondence at the White House. I fell in love with the city and returned after graduation and worked for the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress. After three years, I decided to return, home where I had the great opportunity to return to my beloved alma mater to work for the KU Endowment Association.
Law school was never in my plans. The first time I even thought of law school as an option was during my senior year First Amendment and Society class in the journalism school. It wasn’t until after I returned from Washington, D.C., that I began thinking about my next career steps, and I decided to take the LSAT just to “see what happened.” KU Law was always at the top of my list, and although I entertained ideas of going elsewhere, I always knew I would end up in Green Hall. After sitting in on a class and touring the building, I knew there was nowhere else I’d rather be.
Attending KU Law was the best decision I could have made. In my opinion, KU Law is the greatest value because of the quality education it provides and the dynamic student body you join. I had the great opportunity begin my studies as a summer starter, an option that was perfect for me. After working for four years, I was anxious to get started, and the summer start program provided an easy transition back into the academic setting. With 28 classmates, I quickly made a great group of friends and dove right in learning all of the different aspects of law school.
My English bulldog, Spike, and I couldn’t be happier to be here in Lawrence at KU Law. I hope that you will take some time to visit Green Hall and see everything KU Law has to offer.
