Alumni Stories

Grant Alexis ’05
Attorney-Advisor at the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Administrative Law Judges, Washington, D.C.

“From the first day I took a class with Dr. Wells, I was hooked. Dr. Wells was not only brilliant intellectually, but he encouraged diverse thought in his classes. I’ve never had another professor tell me that he or she thought I was good enough to get into any grad or law school. I took his advice and graduated from the best international relations master’s program in the country (Georgetown). Then, continuing with his advice, I graduated magna cum laude from a top 20 law school (Minnesota). I owe my intellectual courage and development to a great extent to Dr. Wells.”
