The entire process of attaining my degree was a positive one and I am extremely thankful I chose KC”, Styninger says.
He adds, “I originally decided to go to Kaskaskia as it was close to home and had a very reputable criminal justice program that I believe continues to grow and improve. I heard great things about Professor Ken Ingersoll and he and the program exceeded my expectations”.
Brock says that KC helped him with a "jump start" towards with his criminal justice education. “Going into the criminal justice program at KC, I knew that after a short time after graduating I would be trying to get hired as a police officer and go to the academy. My education at the KC criminal justice program gave me a solid foundation and preparation for my training at the police academy as well as adapting to my career after all of my training. Professor Ingersoll does a fantastic job with this program and I cannot thank him enough for helping me build a solid foundation for my career in criminal justice”.
