Q: What makes your club unique to Pace?

A: Our club is unique because we are a special interest group that is appealing to all people, not just forensic science majors. Forensic science as a field has increased in popularity thanks to television shows like CSI and Forensic Files, and our club is a great place to come and experience all things forensics.

Q: What’s one of your proudest moments as a club?

A: One of our proudest moments was winning the Comeback Club of the Year award in 2014 and we have continued to grow ever since.

Q: Why should people join your club?

A: People should join our club for a number of reasons. We plan a ton of fun events, all of which have free food and sometimes even prizes. We are open to anybody who wants to join—not just science majors—but most importantly, we have a lot of fun and it’s a great community to be a part of.

Q: What signature events and achievements are you guys known for, and do you have any coming up?

A: We have been known for our Murder Mystery Dinner in the past. We pick a theme for the event, everyone dresses up, we put on a show where someone is killed, and the guests get to try and solve the murder. The winning team gets $400 to split. We also do a really fun scavenger hunt around the Pace campus where the participants are required to use their problem solving skills to figure out puzzling clues.

Q: If you could describe your club in one word, what would it be?

A: Exhilarating.

Q: What are the goals of the club?

A: The goals of the club are to get people interested in forensic science and give them a glimpse into the world of forensic science. We want to educate our club members on the jobs that are available in the field and the schooling that is required to do so. Most importantly we just want to have fun as a group.

Q: How can students or spectators get involved?

A: To get involved, the students just have to come to our events. All of our information is on OrgSync as well as the dates and locations of our events. We also have a Facebook page. We love for people of any major to join our club and participate.
