Beyond the Tie-Dye: Counterculture in Champaign-Urbana, 1965-1975 - November 20, 2011

Team Member Mary Bio

My name is Mary Campbell, and this is my second year as an intern on the oral history projects, and my first on the Counter-Culture team (I worked on last year’s project (Breaking Down Disability Barriers: the Journey Towards Equality at the University of Illinois) too). I really like working on the projects because it teaches me a lot more than I would know about the topics otherwise, and I get to learn about radio production and gain some of those skills, which is a rare opportunity for a high school student.

I do a lot of other things besides the oral history projects, too. I am involved with theatre and music, and I play soccer in the spring at Uni, normally in some type of defensive position. Probably the extra-curricular that I am the most involved in is Scouting. I am both a Girl and a Venture Scout (Venturing is a co-ed, high adventure division of Boy Scouts of America), and always have a great time doing Scouting things.
