About Criminology Club
Crim Club at Valpo is a student run organization designed to allow those interested in criminology and criminal justice the opportunity to gather with other students who share a mutual interest in the field of study, and meet professionals working in criminal justice fields. However, all students, regardless of major or specific interest, are welcome to attend meetings and participate in club activities.
Crim Club activities vary from year to year, as officers solicit student input in designing programs and activities. The club generally hosts an internship fair, where former interns in criminal justice fields share their experiences working in a particular setting. In addition, a career fair is held annually to allow interested students the opportunity to network with professionals in criminal justice fields. In past years, speakers have included a polygrapher/lie detector expert, a K-9 training unit officer, and a self-defense instructor, among others. Other activities include film nights, field trips to a crime lab and morgue, informal social events, and much more.
All students are eligible to participate in Crim Club. If you are interested in joining, please email the current president and request that your name be included in the email distribution list. Meeting times are voted on by student members and vary from semester to semester.
