Joining a student organization is a good way to enrich your college experience. As a member of a student organization, you will meet new friends, develop social and leadership skills, and have fun while making a difference. There are more than 120 clubs and organizations at Sonoma State University. Here are three student organizations that you might find interesting as a CCJS major or minor.
Criminology and Criminal Justice Club
The Criminology and Criminal Justice Club (CCJ Club) is a place where anyone interested in the subject can come together and share their various points of view as well as make new friends. We also hope to give new students an opportunity to learn from the juniors and seniors about how things work in the CCJS program. For example, new students can ask about different classes or professors that other students have or have had. To keep things fun, we also have opportunities to discuss movies, tv shows, and even video games involving criminal justice. We also schedule field trips and host guest presentations every semester.
The Pre-Law Society (PLS) is a student organization dedicated to bringing together Sonoma State University students who are interested in the law and in pursuing legal careers. We are a community of like-minded students who wish to help members of the student body reach informed decisions about their future. Every year we plan to host a diverse program of speaker events, information sessions, and workshops. In addition to programming, we work with a pre-law advisor and other campus organizations to build community, understanding, and a common vision.
Mock Trial Club
Sonoma State Mock Trial is a team of hardworking college students, from freshmen to seniors. It is a form of speech and debate, taking place in the form of a U.S. Trial. Their competition season runs from about September through February.
