Student Profile: Camille Vincent, C'2014

By summer's end, Camille Vincent, C'2014, will have done her part to help restore an area devastated by Super Storm Sandy. The history major is working with the National Park Service through the Student Conservation Association at Gateway National Recreation Area in New Jersey. There, she's busy restoring the library and the park's archives, repairing photographs, blueprints and films damaged by the storm that ravaged areas of New Jersey last fall.

Camille says, "This opportunity is opening my eyes and allows me to gain insight into the National Park Service. It is a good balance between natural and cultural history."

In addition to her many responsibilities, Vincent is also learning about the natural history of the park that she describes as a good balance between natural and cultural history. Following graduation, Vincent plans to work with City Year AmeriCorps, and then pursue master's degree programs in library science and history.
