My name is Louis Joseph Cameron III and I am a sophomore, majoring in Philosophy with a minor in Political Science. After I graduate I plan on going to graduate school to receive a Master’s degree in Higher Education/Student Affairs. Ultimately, I hope to return to East Carolina University and work in one of the various departments of the Student Affairs division.
The main thing I love about ECU is having the opportunity to be involved in so many different campus organizations and activities. An organization that keeps me very busy is our Student Government Organization. In this, I am an Undergraduate Senator for the College of Arts and Sciences. My duty is to write bills and resolutions and submit them to the entire Senate and have them vote for or against it based on whether or not we think it will help improve student life. Being in SGA gives me the chance to work with some awesome student leaders, interact with more of the ECU community and also network with many professionals and administrators on campus. In doing this, I’m able to make more friends, create opportunities that will benefit me, provide service for my school and learn more about working in a college environment.
For future and current ECU students, I think it’s very important to know that college isn’t just a place to learn stuff and get a degree. It is about learning and graduating with a degree, but it’s also meeting people and preparing for life after college. There are so many different chances in college that will be advantageous to your career and life. In my opinion, if you do things in college the “right” way, you will have the best time of your life!
