UWP criminal justice to host homecoming reception

September 27, 2002

PLATTEVILLE-The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Criminal Justice Association will host its sixth annual homecoming reception Saturday, Oct. 5 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the new Pioneer Student Center University Room South.

UWP senior Sarah Shafarik, Hayward, former president of UWP's Criminal Justice Association, said the reception is well worth attending.

"It's a great way for current students to learn about job opportunities and meet future contacts," Shafarik said. Former students can meet current students to learn about their jobs and experiences in the real world, she added.

Criminal Justice major, senior Nicole Luth of Blue Grass, Iowa, echoed Shafarik's feelings. "The Criminal Justice Association is a good way for students to see what is happening in different areas of criminal justice. The association brings in speakers from different agencies to give students a chance to see what is happening and allows students to decide what part of the criminal justice field is of interest."

Luth is currently serving as president of the association.

UWP Criminal Justice Chair Joe Lomax said the event is an invitation for alumni to share insights and accomplishments. "Practitioners share with the students on employment." It's not only a social event, but informative, he added.
