Criminal Justice Student Association (CJSA)

Club members share a genuine interest in justice studies and federal law enforcement that has evolved into the pursuit of knowledge and wonderful career opportunities beyond the classroom. Members consistently work on projects that allow them to consistently surpass  goals.

One goal is to help others through community outreach. One of the latest and greatest accomplishments is a fundraiser hosted last spring. In less than two weeks, the team raised more than $400, all of which was donated to a local domestic violence group called Circle. Formerly known as the Battered Women’s Service and Shelter, Circle is a non-profit organization in Washington County, Vermont, that provides support and services to victims and survivors of intimate partner violence. CJSA members made it their personal mission to help others within our community while also working toward accomplishing other goals.

The desire to pursue knowledge and great opportunities has led the CJSA to organize educational trips to forensic labs, FBI field offices and to Washington, D.C. Furthermore, the association maintains networks with alumni and former CJSA members that provides members with exclusive opportunities during these trips.

The Maker Team

The Maker Team provides Norwich University’s students with opportunities to gain work and communication experience by functioning and cooperating as an engineering team, and apply what students have learned at the university into projects. This is achieved by the club acting as a resource in which students, professors and other clubs can request or co-build projects with the Maker Team, and occasionally work on stand-alone (personal/club) projects. However, the purpose of the Maker Team is not to act as a utility to the campus. The sole objective of the Maker Team is to bring students who like building things together and just have a good time making stuff!
