Welcome to Hendricks Hall

Hendricks Hall is one of the University’s busiest classroom buildings and home to several of the University’s academic departments and labs. In addition to Criminal Justice and its resources, the departments of Business and Economics; History, Politics, Languages, and Cultures; and ROTC—as well as the Oral History Studio—are housed in the building.

Hendricks Hall is also the place where many of our student organizations, including the Criminal Justice Club and  Alpha Phi Sigma (the National Criminal Justice Honor Society) meet and hold events. If you are interested in criminal justice or forensic sciences, there is always something to do in Hendricks Hall.

Forensic Science/Mock Crime Scene Classrooms and labs

These specially equipped classrooms allow you to experience hands-on laboratory exercises, including fingerprinting, development and lifting of latent fingerprints by a variety of physical and chemical techniques, casting shoe track impressions, presumptive blood detection and much more, related to criminal investigation.
