Jennifer Ocampo '13

I graduated in May 2013 as a Sociology major with a certificate in Child Advocacy. I liked my major because it allowed me to explore very different areas of society and afforded me the knowledge I needed to have a more open mind to people, challenges in society, and a unique outlook as a global citizen. I chose this major after traveling to Nicaragua on a learning delegation, where I realized I wanted to work with people and study more about the interaction between groups. I have had such great opportunities to connect with amazing professors at Montclair State University.

I have just been accepted to the Peace Corps for a possible education assignment leaving in July 2013. If all goes well, this is what I am doing after graduation! It will definitely be a challenging experience but one that I am looking forward to and welcome with arms wide open.
