WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 Upbeat Music 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:09.000 I chose a major in criminal justice, I always thought it would be great to be a public servant 00:00:09.000 --> 00:00:12.000 An now I'm pursuing a carer as a state trooper game warden 00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:19.000 Music 00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:24.000 Of the courses I'm taking this term, one class is corrections coursework and counseling 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:29.000 Right now we are going over duties of probation officers and how important interpersonal communications is 00:00:29.000 --> 00:00:35.000 I've already taken classes in Ethics and Leadership, Police in Community 00:00:35.000 --> 00:00:43.000 and Correction, and each class has shown me that the way an officer talks to an individual is crucial for the perception of that officer and the department 00:00:43.000 --> 00:00:47.000 While pursuing my degree in criminal justice, I've been hired on at the Campus Public Safety 00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:54.000 Which has allowed me hands on experience even before I graduate 00:00:54.000 --> 00:00:57.000 Right now I'm focusing more on patrolling the lots 00:00:57.000 --> 00:00:61.000 I'm also helping in medical assists in the resident halls and on campus 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:07.000 And assisting the officers during big events, parades, move-in day 00:01:07.000 --> 00:01:13.000 I recommend the criminal justice program here at Western Oregon University because the professors don't only teach from a text book, 00:01:13.000 --> 00:01:17.000 But they teach from on the job experience and personal experience 00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:20.000 Western Oregon University is the perfect fit for me 00:01:20.000 --> 00:01:28.000 Music
