Alumni Spotlight - Patricia A. Hudson, Esq. (LAS '14, JD '17)

Q: As a Double Demon alumna, share with us your path to DePaul and then your decision to pursue your legal education at DePaul Law?

I'm from Chicago and grew up in the Englewood community on the city's South Side. I'm a product of Chicago Public Schools and attended Curie High School. I was recruited to Curie from elementary school to be part of the music program. I was a member of the jazz band and thought that music was going to be my career. I ended up applying to a number of music schools, including DePaul's School of Music.

I decided to come to DePaul for college, but did not enroll at the School of Music due to financial considerations. After passing on pursuing a music degree, I bounced between a few different programs before taking a sociology class. I liked that sociology was marketed as a degree that did not pigeonhole the student into one career path. Therefore, I decided to major in sociology and picked-up double minors in political science and women's and gender studies.
