Wednesday Murder Club inaugurated the Spring semester of 2023 at the University of Saint Mary, featuring criminology interests.
Criminology major Jasmine Henderson is the president and founder of Wednesday Murder Club at USM. This club focuses on criminology and forensic science interests. The directors include Vice President Becca Sprague, Secretary Carmen Cordova, Treasurer Karyn Larkin, and Marketing Head Alexia Cuadras.
The WMC started to provide people interested in criminology activities with these to explore the field. Their first appearance was at USM’s Club Fair on Feb 1st. They hold criminology mystery meetings where they practice their analytical skills and sharpen their critical thinking skills. They also have law enforcement speakers that allow them to view a perspective from different careers. They have trip plans involving law enforcement facilities in the making as well. The fairly new club is taking off with great support and interest from the Saint Mary community.
In recent meetings, their members discussed future plans and activities they would like to experience as criminology majors. Clubs are an important part of University life. Being involved in a club allows a student to be involved in their interests and seek managerial or director charges if they wish to. Clubs that are major-centered, specifically, help students involved to sharpen and practice their career skills. Wednesday Murder Club, like other major-centered clubs, allow students to explore the field of their interest and discover their specific interests; thus, allowing them to be passionate about their major and active in their pursuit of furthering their careers before they even graduate.
Recently, their name has brought them into the discussion. When discussing clubs, it’s important to understand the above-mentioned importance of Major-centered clubs. Although their name is evidently attention-grabbing, their mystery dynamics engage the attention of their members.
