Criminal Justice Club to Host Escape Room Event
Lee University’s Criminal Justice Club will host the Criminal Justice Escape Room event on Friday, Nov. 17 from 6-11 p.m. in the Humanities Building, located on Lee’s campus.
The event includes six reservable rooms inside the Humanities Building in which participants will be allowed up to 30 minutes to escape. All escape rooms are designed by club members Christian Cooper, Matthew Glidden, Sammy Hodges, Charles McDowell, and Tucker Still.
“Everyone is invited to join us for an evening of puzzles and challenges to uncover clues and solve the crime,” said McDowell, president of the Criminal Justice Club.
This event is a fundraiser to help build up the Criminal Justice Club at Lee and allow for more opportunities for the club to engage within the field and to invite guest speakers.
Lee’s Criminal Justice Club seeks to develop students’ interest in knowledge within the criminal justice field with an emphasis on service. The club conducts a variety of events throughout the year, all of which are designed to help the club gain valuable skills in teamwork, academia, or knowledge of the field of criminal justice.
“I love the Criminal Justice Club because it takes a Christ-centered approach toward helping others to grow within this discipline,” said McDowell. “Criminal justice is a difficult job, but we want to perform it in a manner that encourages service, loyalty, honesty, and uses knowledge and scientific method to deal with things on an institutional level.”
On Thursday, Nov. 16, at 6 p.m., the Criminal Justice Club will host an FBI special agent, who will speak on counterintelligence. This lecture will take place in the Humanities Building Lecture Hall 104 and is open to the public.
Tickets for the Criminal Justice Escape Room are $8 per person, and all forms of payment are accepted.
