To help our students discover their purpose, I think it's important to help them find the intersection between their motivations, strengths, potential, and enjoyment.

In Introduction to Criminal Justice, we had the opportunity to tour Ventura County Jail, which completely shaped my opinions on corrections. The ‘Procedural Law’ class with Professor Oakman helped me understand our laws and court systems. Professor Oakman gave us the opportunity to watch a case live and it put into context everything we learned in the classroom.
