Preparing for a Calling
When I found my calling to law enforcement in high school, I began imagining what type of college experience would be best to shape me and challenge me in new ways. The one thing I knew: I wanted to attend a family-oriented school that would both prepare me for my calling and provide me with support. I decided to pursue a degree in forensic science in order to someday work in the lab and analysis area of law enforcement, so I was happy to find this program at a smaller university. What I uncovered at SWU was a supportive community and a place ripe with opportunity for success. From being challenged in the classroom to pursuing internships and real-world experience as part of the campus security staff, I was constantly challenged to excel, and I thrived in this environment. Without the support and training I received at SWU, I might not have found a position as a policewoman with the opportunity to transition to the forensics lab.
