Q&A with Senior Camille Faircloth
Camille Faircloth exhibits exceptional qualities as a member of the CHSE family in the classroom and in the LSU community. The senior from Pineville, Louisiana majors in kinesiology and minors in psychology with hopes to become a chiropractor. We had a chance to get to know her a little better and we think you should too. Let's get to know Camille:
Q. How is your LSU degree leading you to be collaborative?
A. The College of Human Sciences and Education has given me the opportunity to become a more collaborative student. Within many of my classes at LSU, I have had the chance to work in groups with my peers to better understand and develop my knowledge on the study of the mechanics of the body. This collaboration within the classroom has inspired me to collaborate with students, faculty, and staff outside of the classroom. The skills I have established through the College of Human Sciences and Education are transferred to the other areas of campus and community that I am involved in, such as LSU Student Government, We’re Committed, University Council of Gender Equity, Kappa Delta Sorority, Crisis Intervention Center, etc. Additionally, because there are multiple career outlets within the College of HSE, such as Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, Athletic Training, etc., I may have the opportunity to collaborate with my peers who purse a different career path in the future.
Q. How is your LSU degree leading you to be impactful?
A. Majoring in Kinesiology at LSU has given me the confidence to be an impactful student, who not only focuses on my studies, but also my community service and campus involvement. By pursuing a career in the medical field, specifically Chiropractic, I am devoting myself to helping others live a healthier life. My empathy for the well-being of others was sparked within the College of HSE and has motivated me to take part in other areas of campus that also focus on the well-being of others, such as the anti-sexual violence movement. We’re Committed is the university initiative to end sexual violence and create and maintain a community of respect. I have had the privilege of serving as the Student Director of We’re Committed for the last two years.
Q. What is your favorite class and why?
A. Biomechanics with Professor McLellan has been my favorite class at LSU thus far. This course summed up everything I had learned in prior semesters (physics, human anatomy, physiology, motor learning, etc.) and applied it directly to the body in a way that was interesting and easy to comprehend.
Q. What do you plan to do with your degree once you graduate?
A. Following graduation, I plan to attend Chiropractic School in either Texas or Georgia, where I hope to earn my Doctorate of Chiropractic and ultimately join the family practice.
Q. Three adjectives others might use to describe me are…
A. Open minded, driven, and confident
Q. An interesting fact about myself is…
A. I know all of the elements on the Periodic Table.
