The Department hosts the Sociology/Criminology Club. This student-led SGA-registered organization coordinates educational and social events related to academics, careers, and social justice issues. Getting involved is a great opportunity to learn about Sociology and Criminology, to get to know other Old Westbury students, and to develop your leadership skills.
In addition to providing a source of information and resources related to volunteer, internship, and career opportunities, some of their most successful events (some co-sponsored) have included:
- Career Paths & Options Talks with professors, social workers, corrections officers, and an FBI forensic chemist
- Information Sessions on getting to graduate school, and navigating the major(s)
- Studying and Stress-Reduction socials
Have ideas for more events? Looking for leadership opportunities?
Join us at a General Assembly meeting or event, or contact the Soc/Crim Club e-board or Faculty Advisors for more information.
