NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.– Westminster College welcomes a newly established Chapter of the Criminal Justice Studies Honorary Society, Alpha Phi Sigma. The first class honored includes 9 students from the Criminal Justice department, which recently became a new major at the college. Criminal Justice was previously linked together with the Sociology department. Now since the major is new, separate, and independent, advisor to the group Dr. Kristenne Robison believes it was essential for the honorary society to be created.
“Since moving criminal justice studies to its own major and out of sociology, it was decided criminal justice majors should have their own honorary society,” said Robison.
They plan to bring more influential guest speakers to the college, as well as complete volunteer work, and travel to annual conferences to The Academy of Criminal Justice Studies conference held every spring and winter.
The Chapter is lead by Max Ungerman (President), along with Caity Kreider (Vice President). They will be advised by Dr. Kristenne Robison and Dr. Shannon Smithey, both well respected professors at the college.
