Student organizations help you make friends and get involved with your campus and your community. Some organizations also give you the opportunity to network with other students who share your career goals nationwide. Enrich your college experience and develop leadership skills by becoming active in campus life. Building on the natural camaraderie between students and faculty in the program, the Department of Justice Studies sponsors two organizations for the benefit of students like you.
Defensive Tactics ClubPractice effective police control and self-defense tactics weekly with the Defensive Tactics Club. You will learn techniques ranging from verbal control to ground fighting, ballistic grappling, escort holds, cuffing techniques, and much more. Work out with community law enforcement members. Reach out to the community by participating in events like Take Back the Night and other self-defense clinics and demonstrations. Contact Mr. Kenton Russell to get involved.
Criminal Justice Club/ Delta Tau OmegaThe Criminal Justice Club offers students a chance to get to know one another outside of class while participating in community service projects. While the club’s activities change from semester to semester based on student interest, the club meets on a weekly basis. As Delta Tau Omega, the FHSU chapter of American Criminal Justice Association, students gain the opportunity to compete for scholarships and participate in national conferences. For more information, contact Ms. Tamara Lynn.
Justice Studies majors are a valuable part of many campus-wide organizations, like Tigers in Service, University Activities Board, and the Student Government Association. For more information about over one hundred organizations you could belong to at FHSU, visit the Center for Student Involvement.
