What is your favorite thing about being a student at UIS?   I find the campus really relaxing in the summer and enjoy all the gardens and greenery. I like that this is a small school and a lot of people know each other, but the school is growing each year which is also good. Lastly, I feel like there is a lot of opportunity out here in Springfield.

What are your goals for the semester? I want to stay focused on school work and keep ahead of the curve. I want to work more and save my money instead of spending it. Lastly, I want to meet more people and make more friends.

If there were a reality TV show of your life, what would it be called? Why? The Campbell Curse, because we have an inside joke in our family that whenever something goes wrong it must have been the curse . So it would just go through out our daily lives watching small mishaps.

Are you involved in any clubs/activities/sports on campus? Or what are your hobbies? I like to practice my Muy thai. Go bowling with friends or watch movies and sometimes work on my motorcycle

What have you learned since working at the library? I’ve learned a lot since working here. I’ve learned how to desensitize the books, put things away correctly, where all the book drops are. Book drops are the best, because you get to enjoy some fresh air while walking around.

What are your post-graduation plans? Hopefully after graduation I will get an okay job and move either back home to Chicago or another big city, I enjoy Portland a lot. Then I’d like to buy a small ranch house and when I’m done paying it off I can start to rent it out. Then I’d definitely buy myself a new motorcycle and I promised my mom when I was little I would buy her a new car so lastly that’s what I’d do.

What is your favorite item from the Library of Things collection? Most likely the mixer, because Im not good at baking but its fun.
