UND’s Forensic Science Club offers more than blood
"It's been one of the best decisions of my college career," said University of North Dakota Senior Kami Baxter. No, she wasn't not talking about her decision to move out of a house with seven boys. It was her decision to join the University of North Dakota Forensic Science Club.
The club, made up of 15 students, is hoping to recruit new members for the fall semester. "Forensics Science Club is a great way to meet your classmates and professors," said Baxter. Club meetings typically entail discussions about the latest news in forensic science. The club is also active in a wide variety of campus events. They put on the Haunted Lab in O'Kelly Hall and are an annual participant in the Big Event.
Club members have enjoyed trips to Forensic Conferences held in Chicago, Washington and most recently Atlanta, where they hear from prominent speakers about the most pressing issues in the field of Forensics. These trips are educational in nature, but celebrities have been known to drop by. Just recently, Kathy Reich, creator of the hit TV show BONES, and Dr. Jan Garavaglia, host of Dr. G: Medical Examiner' have been speakers.
Baxter encourages anyone thinking of joining to go to a club meeting. "It's a great resume builder and if forensics really is your passion, it will help you get ahead in your classes."
The club meets every other Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union.
