Criminal Justice Club
The Criminal Justice Club meets regularly to plan outings and events. The club has organized a variety of activities, including a field trip to Clinton County Correctional Facility, and brought guest speakers to the campus from social services and criminal justice agencies from the North Country.
Several faculty members offer students the opportunity to serve as peer teaching assistants in their courses. These TAs help other students in the class and often assist the professor in preparing the course.
All faculty are engaged in primary research as well as teaching. There are frequent opportunities to assist faculty in their work. Most often, such research assistantships are paid, but they always provide an opportunity to know the faculty better and to gain important experience in research.
