“The criminology advising department is an informative resource that every criminology major can benefit from. All of the advisors are so helpful and answer all of my questions. Whenever I go in for an appointment they take as much time as they need with me to make sure all of my questions are answered; and if I just have a quick question, I can always email them and get a timely response. I never feel like I am in the dark or don’t know what my major requirements are. During one advising appointment, I had mentioned that I was studying for the LSAT and the advisor gave me an extra LSAT prep book they had. Another advisor told me about the department's amazing internship opportunities that I am currently doing and love! The advisors truly care about their students and have their best interest in mind. They are an incredible resource that all criminology majors should be taking advantage of!”
