The Waynesburg University Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science and the Office of Admissions will host a fall Mock Crime Scene Workshop Saturday, Nov. 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

The Mock Crime Scene Workshop provides high school students the opportunity to analyze crime scenes and collect and process evidence alongside Waynesburg University students and faculty, as well as experts in the field. 

Students will gain hands-on training from skilled experts in the forensic sciences and have the opportunity to utilize those practices by applying them at a crime scene. The vast array of sessions offered will help students to determine if they can see a forensic science or criminal justice career in their futures. 

“The Mock Crime Scene weekend gives the current students, faculty and staff the opportunity to meet prospective students and show them, through experience, what they can expect by attending Waynesburg University,” said Faith Musko, instructor of forensic science. “Our goal is to excite them about our programs, the opportunities available to them and assist them with making lasting connections with our community.” 

Every year, typically more than 40 current high school juniors and seniors attend the event. 

To register or for more information, contact the Office of Admissions at 800-225-7393.
