Student Organizations


The Criminal Justice Club at Seattle University is a group of students interested in and dedicated to the criminal justice process, system, workings, and issues. Through engaging with faculty and the community and each other, students can learn about the system nation wide, and especially here in Seattle. The club offers multiple avenues into the professional world through tours, meet and greets, brown bag lunches, speakers, networking events and more. The club also offers social events to get to know your other club members. These include study break movie nights (often with crime drama movies) around finals each quarter and our annual silent auction. 

CJC is also dedicated to being an active member with the SU community and the greater Seattle community. The club enters in charitable and awareness events such as Dance Marathon and Relay for Life. The club often partners with the Criminal Justice Honors Society (APS) for events and service like the Juvenile Detention Christmas Drive each winter. The club provides opportunities for leadership and service in the community and allows us reserved spaces in campus safety events like the Night Walk or helping Public Safety with officer tests. We strive to make the club a worthwhile and meaningful avenue to like-minded individuals, the faculty, and the professional world. We hope to see you soon!


Co-President: Cierrah Loveness

Hello, I am Cierrah Loveness and I am a senior majoring in Forensic Psychology. I am the co-president with the amazing Sophie Evans and we are all really excited about this year! I currently work as a research analyst for Micro-Community Policing Plans in the South Precinct. Outside of school I love to hang out, drink coffee, bake, and go out running at different Seattle Parks! After graduation I plan on either heading off to grad school, working with the Seattle Police Department, or staying here for my masters. I cannot wait to be involved with you all in fun CJ activities!

Co-President: Sophie Evans

Hey! My name is Sophie Evans and I am a 3rd year CJ Major and Psychology Minor at SU and I’m so excited to be this years’ co-president with Cierrah. But a little about me! I was born and raised in Washington, not far from Seattle, so I am obviously an adventure junkie. I hike, camp, and boulder in my free time – getting out of the bustling city is great if you can do it! I also play volleyball, for the SU Women’s Club Team and played for the Irish National team when I studied abroad in Galway. After my Undergrad, I plan to get a Master’s Degree in Forensic Psychology and later obtain a PhD in Neuroscience. So basically I’ll be Holden Ford from Mindhunter, researching criminals… I can’t wait to share with you all more about the clubs’ festivities this year, it’s going to be a great year!

Vice President: Simran Kaur

Hi everyone! My name is Simran Kaur and I am your vice president for the 2019/2020 school year. I am a junior majoring in Criminal Justice with a specialization in Administration of Justice. Along with being a part of the Criminal Justice Club, I am also a crime analyst intern at the King County Superior Court in the Prosecuting Attorney's office. Outside of school I love spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, and traveling as much as possible. I have lived in Washington my whole life and I absolutely love it here. After graduating I will most likely be applying to law school to get my Juris Doctor or applying to the police academy. I am so excited to get to know all of you and spend time together doing fun activities that we have planned!

Secretary: JT Melbourn

Hi, I’m JT and I’m excited to be the Secretary of CJ Club this year! I’m a sophomore majoring in Criminal Justice and specializing in Forensic Science! I’m from San Diego, CA and when I’m at home I love surfing, camping and spending time with my friends and family! When I’m in Seattle the beach is too far away and the water is too cold so I like to go bouldering, hiking, and snowboarding as often as possible! During the winter quarter, I am lucky enough to spend every Friday night snowboarding with Outdoors For All (an organization that helps people get into adaptive sports)! I also work at Salt and Straw, so stop by and say hi if you see me working and or just want some ice cream! I’m hoping to pursue a career in federal law enforcement, so after my undergrad, I will most likely begin working towards a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice or perhaps Chemistry! This year I most look forward to all the fun event ideas for the CJ Club such as visiting the FBI’s Seattle Field Office and I hope we can make it and all the other great ideas possible!

Treasurer: Mickey Richardson

Hi! My name is Michela Richardson, but everyone calls me Mickey. I am a third-year Criminal Justice major with a Forensic Psychology specialization and a Psychology minor. As of recently, I am one of three crime analyst interns with the Crime Strategies Unit in the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. After graduation, I hope to head off to graduate school and eventually earn my Ph.D. in Forensic Psychology or something of the sort. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, and traveling. I am really looking forward to all the different events we have planned for this year and cannot wait to meet all the new members!

PR Manager: Jane Park

The Pi Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma

Students in the criminal justice field, we find it important to integrate our academic experience with real life experiences. We accomplish this by offering a range of volunteer opportunities to our student body, which will assist them in getting the experience that they need to become competitive in their field. We also offer guest speakers in a wide range of fields that will help guide our students in achieving their career goals. 

The Pi Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma is aimed at serving the students and helping make their academic experience a positive one. We do this by holding activities outside of school, so that we can get to know each other better.
