“I’m just one of those people that likes to be busy,” says Camille Moyers, a junior from Portland double majoring in Renewable Materials and Interior Design. Active and ambition are indeed words that come to mind when describing her. Between the two majors, Camille says she is used to taking 18-20 credits per term in addition to working on the Bio Char project with Chris Knowles and working at a law firm in Portland on the weekends. Camille’s hobbies also include golfing and rock climbing, though she admits school work take up most of her time.
Camille was originally drawn to OSU because her sister was a student here but says her favorite thing about the university is the people she’s met “especially in the College of Forestry.” When she considers what made her choose her major, she explains, “When I first started in renewable materials it was more to supplement sustainable interior design...but the more I get into it, the more I lean towards just renewables.”
Camille also enjoys the opportunities that the small classes offer and adds that, “The specific attention is really awesome. I just like the sense of community in the College of Forestry, and David Smith is a great advisor.”
As an OSU student, her advice to peers is “just basic, do your stuff when you need to get it done.” As an RM major she adds, “get involved, there are so many opportunities here.”
Camille already has an internship lined up for the summer at an architecture firm in Southeast Portland and says after graduation she’d love to start out working at a firm in Portland and hopefully be able to travel as well. She ultimately aspires to own her own architecture firm in San Francisco where her passion for sustainable interior design would be right at home.
