Student Life

Each Penn State campus is unique, offering students a vibrant student life full of opportunities to participate in clubs and organizations and essential support services to help them reach their academic goals.

Those with a forensic interest can join the Forensic Science Club (open to majors and non-majors).

Forensic majors with outstanding academics can join Delta Delta Epsilon International Forensic Science Honor Society (DDE) beginning their junior year.

Forensic Living Learning Community

In a "Living Learning Community" or "LLC," Penn State on-campus residence halls or apartments bring together students who share a common interest. Specific floors or rooms are designed for the LLC and its residents. Forensic Science has an LLC in which students who are Forensic Science majors and pre-majors can room together - instant study buddies!

If you would like to learn more about LLCs, visit
