New minors create more educational opportunities

September 26, 2014

This semester, Saint Vincent College has added four new minors, three of which are in the criminology department. These three minors fall into three subcategories of forensics: computer security, financial investigations and natural science. The learning objectives for the forensics minors state that the “field of forensics is a growing and dynamic one” that has expanded beyond merely gathering data at crime scenes. The new minors are meant to provide students with the understanding they will need in the developing field. The forensic studies minors will give students the knowledge of specialized areas so they may work with agents and attorneys to carry out justice in these specific areas. The minors do not make the student a specialist, but provide them with a working understanding of how their specific discipline is involved in the overall criminal justice system. Students in the “forensic studies–computer security” minor must take courses in criminology,Read More

September 24, 2014

After several successful seasons, the Saint Vincent women’s tennis team begins to prepare for 2014. This season, the Bearcats will be taking the court with new coach, Jym Walters. Walters was named coach of the team after former coach, Dr. Christopher McMahon, stepped down from the position last spring. In the past four seasons, the Bearcats have won 57 games and lost 22. Along with a .722 win percentage over the past four seasons, the Bearcats made their first NCAA Tournament appearance in the 2012-2013 season. Coming into the 2014 season with Walters, it is unclear exactly what to expect. According to Walters, “Continuing what the founders of the program have established has been successful thus far, and I would like to continue to build on the competitive nature of this team.” Early on in the 2014 season, the Bearcats have already shown this competitive nature Walters spoke of.

In 2009, Saint Vincent College dedicated its football field in honor of the influential coach Chuck Noll.

Under Noll, the Steelers entered the NFL playoffs 12 times, seeing eight consecutive playoff appearances from 1972-1979, with a .667 win-loss playoff percentage overall. Noll maintained a 193-148 win-loss record withRead More
