"It allowed me the opportunity to make long term friendships with people who displayed many of the same interests I have. We always had someone to study with or help us through things if we did not understand, due to the fact we had multiple classes together. Where someone else lacked there was someone there who didn't and was willing to help.

--Tanika, '13, Criminal Justice

"It provided me a great opportunity to make friends who had the same goals, making it easier to transition from high school to college. Also, we had fun hanging out together outside of class!"

--Roy, '13, Criminal Justice

"Being a part of the Criminal Justice Learning Community was a significant help my freshman year. I had classes with the same individuals and was able to gain positive relationships and excellent study groups. I am now a member in a great honor society."

--Erin-Audrey, '15, Criminal Justice, Minor: Legal Studies
