NAME: Dominic Raguz
HOMETOWN: Chalfont, PA
MAJOR: Criminal Justice
FAVORITE THING ABOUT SHIPPENSBURG:
My favorite thing about Ship is the people, especially my Criminal Justice teachers who are very good at what they do and are easy to talk to, my friends who are so much fun to be around, and my coaches who are teaching me so many lessons.
TWO INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT ME:
I know how to drive a Zamboni. I am on the track team here at Ship.
MY FRIENDS AT SHIP:
Most of my friends are on the track team with me. I spend every day with them. Luckily I like all of them so it makes it really enjoyable to see them so often. I have other friends outside of track that I have met from classes or just around campus.
I am part of Shippensburg University's Track and Field team. Also, I am part of a Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC).
MOST MEANINGFUL LEARNING EXPERIENCE AT SHIP:
There hasn't been just one most meaningful learning experience, but some of the bigger ones have been in some of the more important classes I took. Those classes were Criminal Law and Procedure with Dr. Jirard, and Research Methods with Dr. Fetzer. Both of these classes have been great for not only learning the material but for learning life lessons.
Track has been a great learning experience for me because it has taught me great time management skills along with perseverance and determination.
COMMUNITY SERVICE/VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES:
I perform community service with the organization SAAC. We have done trash pickups around Shippensburg, held a Special Olympics swim meet, had a Make a Wish Foundation Fundraiser, and other smaller events.
WHAT I DO FOR FUN:
For fun I like practicing and competing for track and working out. I also enjoy reading when I can, watching movies, or spending time with my friends. When I am home I like to shoot guns with my brothers and dad, and I like working on cars with my brother.
MY PLANS AFTER GRADUATION:
After graduation I plan to enlist in the Marines or look for a job in the Federal Government, like the FBI, NSA, DHS, or US Marshals, or a police department somewhere. During all that I may take courses towards getting my Master’s in Criminal Justice.
