The education that Robert Lee received at the University of Arkansas means a great deal to him not only because he will be a first-generation college graduate, but also because he has lived in the Fayetteville area since he was 6 years old. He can’t wait to see his name etched into Senior Walk.

After graduation, the Honors College student plans to attend law school and possibly seek acceptance to a joint juris doctor/master’s degree program. He applied at nine law schools. He also has acceptance into George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C.

He is a co-editor of the 2015 Razorback Yearbook, a research assistant at the Department of Education Reform, and has completed two competitive political internships with Asa Hutchinson and John Boozman, where he learned valuable skills, such as how to conduct himself in professional manner, run meetings, manage a staff, meet deadlines and stay under budget.

Although he hasn’t had the opportunity to study abroad, he has visited 43 state, most major Canadian cities, the Mexican-American border and the Yucatan Peninsula. He says Washington, D.C. is next on his travel list of places to visit.
