The Waynesburg University Forensic Science Club will host the annual fall Mock Crime Scene Workshop Saturday, Nov. 11.

According to Faith Musko, instructor of forensic science, the purpose of the workshop is to give high school students an opportunity to explore the areas of forensic science and criminal justice.

“The main goal of the Mock Crime Scene is to give prospective students the opportunity to expand their knowledge and experience in the areas of forensic science and criminal justice in order to help them make an informed decision about their future major and career choice,” said Musko.

In the morning, students will be rotated through workshops for particular skillsets, including fingerprinting and crime scene processing. Then, later that day, they will experience a crime scene, where they must utilize the skills they learned to solve the case.

Musko said Mock Crime Scene has the added benefit of introducing high school students to the programs available at Waynesburg University.

“It gives them the chance to meet and work with our current students, which helps build our community and show them what our university and programs have to offer,” she said.

For more information, or to reserve a spot, call the Office of Admissions at 724-852-3346.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
