Criminal justice and Criminology majors, graduate students, and students from other disciplines are welcome to join the two student criminal justice organizations. Many students are members of both organizations, and the two groups often meet and work together on projects.
Criminal Justice and Criminology Club
The Criminal Justice and Criminology Club is a group of students who share a common interest in criminal justice issues. The club is active in bringing speakers to campus and working with community organizations.
Students interested in joining the Criminal Justice and Criminology Club may contact Dr. Hillary Mellinger, the faculty advisor, at email@example.com. Dues are $5 per semester and $10 per year.
Alpha Phi Sigma
The national criminal justice honor society, Alpha Phi Sigma, was founded at WSU. Current members have been involved in criminal justice research projects and have presented their findings at a national criminal justice conference.
Undergraduate or graduate students interested in joining must submit a completed application to Sisouvanh Keopanapay or Rebecca Auliye along with $95 ($70 goes to headquarter and $25 are kept by our local chapter to run the club) for membership dues. Requirements for membership include completion of at least four courses within the criminal justice curriculum, a declared criminal justice major or minor, and a minimum GPA of 3.2 overall and 3.2 in criminal justice and criminology courses.
