Faculty Who Care
Patrick J. Hughes
What do students like the most about the courses you teach?
This is a good question. I believe students like the reality and applicability i attempt to bring to them through the subject matter being taught. I think they also enjoy the interaction in class and being treated as an adult.
What is your favorite Central Penn memory?
Being honored by faculty colleagues and students awarding me the Faculty Excellence Award.
What is the biggest challenge facing students going into the field of Criminal Justice? How can students prepare to face this challenge?
The largest challenge students entering the field of Criminal Justice is their backgrounds and the decisions they make. They need to understand as the applicant pool for positions grows, employers have more choices and can become very selective on the choice of future employees.
What would you say to a prospective "You Can. You Will." student considering Central Penn College?
College is a choice. Be prepared to learn, work,and be dedicated to improving yourself.
