    Criminal Justice Student Association

    The Criminal Justice Student Association (CJSA) is an active component of the Government and Public Administration Department. Students who become members learn about the criminal justice field and gain valuable experience through a variety of academic programs, events, conferences, and other activities.

    CJSA is a student-led organization open to undergraduate students with a major or minor in criminal justice or political science. All members must maintain high standards and exemplary moral and ethical behavior.

    Over the past few years, CJSA has hosted various forums and symposiums such as annual Criminal Justice Forums each spring and fall. They actively give back to the community and regularly partner with local organizations for community service projects including: Red Cross, United Way, St. Jude, Women in Defense, TIP of Alabama, LEI, Limestone County/Athens Child Advocacy Center, Family Resource Center, and Boys and Girls Club.

    CJSA also has collaborated with various surrounding schools to offer children Halloween Candy and Safety Tips and Anti-Bullying Awareness sessions. CJSA hosted a Voter’s Registration Drive on campus to connect academics with political awareness efforts. In addition, CJSA travels to other universities to participate in workshops and conferences related to leadership, minority, child advocacy, domestic violence, and other law-related programs to keep criminal justice students actively connected to their field.

    Athenian Players

    The Athenian Players are the resident theatre company representing the Drama & Theatre Arts program at Athens State University, housed within the Alabama Center for the Arts.

    The Athenian Players enrich the vibrancy of Decatur and Northern Alabama through the creation of live theatre. They act as a supplemental academic experience for Athens State students, granting them hands-on, experiential learning through acting, design, stage management, and production.

    Membership is inclusive to regularly enrolled Athens State University students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as Community College students and our community at large.

    The Athenian Players produce three plays a year, drawing the cast and crew from diverse and talented Athens State University students, Community College students, and the local Alabama community of theatre artists at large. They perform in the Studio Theatre located in the Music & Theatre Building at the Alabama Center of the Arts in historic Downtown Decatur.

    Their goal is to continue the long tradition of quality dramatic productions from Athens State University’s illustrious history and to be a beacon for future theatre artists in the greater North Alabama region.
