Classroom

Campbell is a future 2014 graduate of the University of Dayton earning a double degree in mathematics and education. Along with taking classes, Campbell has been actively involved in both private and public schools in Dayton. After graduation, she plans to obtain a teaching and coaching position at a nearby high school and hopes to share her knowledge, skills, and positivity with others. In both 2011 and 2012, Campbell was named to the Capital One First Team Academic All-District V. In addition, she was part of the Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference Team those two years as well. At the University of Dayton, Campbell has been named to the Dean’s list multiple semesters and each year has been named to the student-athlete honor roll by having a cumulative grade point average higher than a 3.5.

Character

Campbell represents the true definition of a teammate. Not only does she help the team on the court, but Campbell also leads by example off the court through her volunteer activities, commitment to the classroom and by being a reliable friend to many. She has won the team “Bring it Award” the past two years which demonstrates determination and focus in every aspect of the game and is an honor that is voted on by her teammates. Campbell demonstrates leadership, encouragement, a positive outlook, a good work ethic and a passionate desire to compete.  She intuitively uses these skills to inspire others to achieve success. Since she has been at Dayton, the Flyers have won the Atlantic 10 Conference regular season title and the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament crown every year, and with her help, the Flyers have reached as far as the second round in the NCAA tournament, losing to Oregon in 2012.

Community

Campbell has reached out to the Dayton community and her hometown community throughout her college career. Alongside her team, Campbell volunteers year round. Her volunteering acts include working free volleyball clinics before Saturday home matches, helping in multiple YMCA volleyball clinics around the Dayton area, providing assistance for a YMCA daycare camp, visiting multiple nursing homes and playing games with the elderly and painting a house for Habit for Humanity. Additionally, she volunteered to help instruct a local church volleyball team several times and each Christmas season participates in the University of Dayton’s Christmas on Campus by adopting a less fortunate kid for an evening. She has been the volleyball representative for the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, which is an organization that seeks opportunities for student-athletes to volunteer. As a future teacher, Campbell takes pride in being active in the community and giving back. She feels extremely fortunate to step out on the court every Friday night with the stands packed by the wonderful community that surrounds her. Additionally, every summer Campbell assists in coaching at the University of Dayton summer volleyball camps and a summer volleyball camp conducted in her hometown.

Competition

Campbell is a two-time AVCA All-American, CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-District Team, Atlantic 10 All-Conference First Team, A-10 All-Academic Team and A-10 All-Tournament Team member. Campbell is one of only three Flyers to be named to an AVCA All-America team (non-honorable mention). She has five-times been honored as a conference player of the week. Heading into her senior season at Dayton, Campbell ranks third in program history in career hitting percentage (.357) and seventh all-time in career block assists (280) and posted the program’s fifth-best single-season hitting percentage (.398) in 2012 while her 2011 hitting percentage of .412 is the second-best in UD history. Campbell posted career highs in kills (17) and solo blocks on 11-18-12 against former A-10 rival Xavier in a thrilling 3-2, come-from-behind win in the A-10 Championship finals. Last season she had seven matches with zero attacking errors, four of which included double-digit kills, and tallied 13 kills with no errors on 20 swings (.650) in the Flyers’ sweep of VCU on Nov. 4.
