Renée Alten is the Director of Admissions Operations and Communications at Florida Coastal School of Law. Renée hails from Syracuse, New York, also known as Sybericuse or Hoth Ice Planet for those Star Wars lovers out there. When she was 18 years old she escaped the cold, and what seemed like year-round snow, to move to Maryland where she attended Washington College. Renée always dreamed of going to law school. Before fulfilling her dream, she took a year off to immerse herself in a cross cultural experience; she lived in Scotland for one year.
When she returned to the states, she enrolled in law school. She loved it so much she decided to stay in the law school environment and start a career as a law school administrator. After working in the New England area for a number of years she discovered Florida Coastal School of Law where she now calls home. She is grateful every day to work in such a supportive, innovative, and student centered environment.
The highlight of Renée’s job is introducing prospective students to Coastal Law and watching their faces light up as they learn about all of the incredible opportunities the school has to offer. Some of these opportunities include a plethora of hands-on learning experiences (The National Jurist awarded Florida Coastal School of Law an A+ for Best Law Schools for Practical Training – 2015), the potential to become a member of Coastal Law’s moot court team (which is currently ranked #1 in the nation according to the –2014 – 2015 Moot Court National Championship standings), and the ability to enroll in one of Coastal Law’s dual degree programs (JD/MBA and JD/MPP).
Renée is proud to work for such a dynamic law school and serve as a representative of Florida Coastal School of Law as she travels the country to meet with and educate prospective law students.
