Penn State Forensics Program Is Sweet!

csiHooray! Earlier this week, the Centre Daily Times reported that Penn State’s brand new Forensics program is gaining respect and producing some noteworthy alumni. That’s pretty awesome for a program that has only been in existence for a few years now. Let’s see what some of the alum are up to these days:

“When I graduated, they told me they had pushed us hard to prepare us to handle anything that came at us in the real world,” said Alex Porigow, a 2008 graduate who works in the New York Police Department crime lab. “I left school nervous I didn’t learn much, but I quickly realized how prepared for the real world I was on my very first interview.”

Three alumni work with the FBI. Another works in the Denver Police Department’s crime lab. Others have gone on to nursing school, law school, medical school or research laboratories.

A very nice start for the program. We are very anxious to see what the Forensics program’s future holds. Perhaps a joint program with the College of Communications for a dual-degree in forensics and one-liners? We will just have to wait and see.
