Hey everyone!
I am a rising sophomore and was thinking about some things I could possibly do the summer before my junior year starts. I'm planning to major in criminal justice. What should I do? I'm willing to do anything that will look good on college apps.

    There is much you can do next summer ... here are some ideas (just brainstorming for you):

    - Join the local PD or FBI high school volunteer programs
    - Contact your local college/university and speak to their CJ Director to see if you can do some research or something
    - Take a CJ enrichment program at a university next summer ... there are lots of good ones that will confirm your interest in CJ. My daughter has taken both a CJ and Forensic enrichment program and she loved them and they confirmed she wanted to be in CJ.
    - Either volunteer to paint graffiti OR start a club, raise your own funds and paint graffiti with the ASSISTANCE of your local PD.
    - Raise funds to assist the children of LE officers killed in the line of duty
    - Get a job (not sexy but solid thought)

    Anyway, the point is that your summers should be productive and it's a great that you are thinking about it now. There are many things you can do, especially if you get creative.

    Good luck!!
