The Criminology and Criminal Justice Student Association (CRIMSA) is a student group specific to the CCJS program at The Universities at Shady Grove. Involvement in CRIMSA allows students to cooperatively prepare for graduation and beyond, whether immediately beginning their careers or furthering their education through graduate or law school.

CRIMSA generally meets at least once per month.  Additional activities include fundraising, community service, a guest speaker series, and social outings.
