Academic shows passion for law

Hannah Kolb is a commuter student who is majoring in Criminal Justice, Psychology and Criminology with a concentration in Victimology and minors in Sociology and Pre-Law. She is a Junior, expected to graduate with the Class of 2024. She currently lives in Northfield, VT.  

What is the story behind your choice of major?   

For a while now, I’ve been interested in behavior analysis and law enforcement, and the combination of Criminal Justice and Psychology offered the best education on that front. When Criminology became an option, I wanted to add it and had already done a decent percentage of the CJ degree, so it made the most sense to do it and Crim. 

What led you to Norwich? How did you find out about the school?   

I learned about Norwich when my dad got a job here, but what brought me here was the CJ program and how well-known it was. Specifically, we were in the airport, and I got stopped by a member of TSA who remarked about how he trained with some Norwich graduates and they were some of the best people he had worked with. That kind of sealed the deal. 

What are your hobbies and extracurriculars on campus and in your personal life?  

I’m the President of Norwich University Students for Life and the Chair of the SGA Student Senate. I’ve also been involved in research and theatre for general hobbies. 

What are your post-graduation goals? Do you have a dream career or one that is already set? 

After graduation, I’m going to be going to grad school to get my Master’s and hopefully PhD. I’d like to work in Federal Law Enforcement with the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit of the FBI, which works to end child exploitation on the internet.
