"I started mock as a freshman in high school because I was trying to find another club meeting, got turned around in the English department at school, accidentally walked into the mock meeting instead of the one I was looking for, have been doing mock ever since."

"I love being a witness because it is the best of both worlds. We have to know the Rules of Evidence to make sure our answers are admissible, but we can't sound too rehearsed or practiced. I love finding a passage or fact that would seem inadmissible and finding a way to change the wording just enough to get it in."

"I joined mock trial because I competed in high school and I met a couple older students at the Involvement Fair, and I couldn't think of a good enough reason not to join. Best decision I made."

"My favorite part is the instant group of friends I made upon joining. We spend so much time together that we get extremely close. It was the first time I felt such a close friendship with people in college."
