The Sociology and Criminal Justice Club exists to further the academic and career development of any student, that also includes just getting together and having a good time on occasion. We sponsor social activities, guest speakers, field trips, conference trips and much, much more. We also provide a forum in which students can exchange information on courses, job prospects, and the like. To join, contact one of the officers or the faculty advisor ($5 annual fee).
