Club corner: Criminal Justice Club

The Criminal Justice Club is good for more than receiving that approving nod from those who look over your résumé.

Meeting every Tuesday at 5 p.m. in room 207A of the North Building on the SC4 campus, the club tries to involve activities relevant to the curriculum for the criminal justice degree program.

“We try to get a guest speaker in every other week,” said Justin King, president of the Criminal Justice Club.

Most recently, at their meeting on Nov.1, they had two guest speakers from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s office share their experience in the drug task force.

“Participating in community events is our big thing,” said King.

Recently they have been involved with SC4’s Club Awareness Day and the dodgeball event hosted by Student Government. A few members of the club had volunteered to help put on the Suicide Prevention Walk back in October.

They plan to participate in the upcoming Stress Breaker event this December, yet a decision on an activity has not yet been finalized.

Though being part of the CJC does look good on a résumé, it also helps you with networking, provides fellowship, increases your communication skills and it is all educational.

For more information, you can check out the club’s Facebook page which can be found if you search “St. Clair County Community College- Criminal Justice Club.” Or you can contact James Jones, the club advisor by emailing jjones@ sc4.edu.
