Sociology-Criminology Student Club

Club LogoThe 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?  

Get involved!  

Join us at a General Assembly meeting or event, or contact the Soc/Crim Club e-board or Faculty Advisors for more information.
