About Pack 5

Throughout our Yellowstone trip in the summer of 2013 we will be adding posts about our experiences in the field on completing assignments on this blog. This pack has three members Charles Vancampen, Katie Scott, and Carmen Balogh who will be posting periodically and an introduction to each student is below. Thanks for reading!

Charles Vancampen- Hello, my name is Charlie and I am a criminal justice major. I am a junior here at Longwood University and am also a member of the Cormier Honors College. I am excited for this opportunity because I have always wanted to travel to Yellowstone but have never had the chance and getting to go for a class makes it even better. I look forward to meeting the local stakeholders, learning more about the issues that surround the park, and just experiencing the park and it surrounding areas.

Katie Scott- Currently I’m a junior at Longwood University, and plan on majoring in biology. My hometown is Halifax County, Virginia and this will be my first time out west!

Carmen Balogh- I am a senior and studio art major (drawing/painting). I am very excited to be on the trip to the Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. I’ve never had the chance to see these mountains and landscapes and there are no regrets on the journey so far. I look forward to seeing the wildlife (already saw a moose), learning about the issues such as the wolf population vs hunters and ranchers, and getting to know the parks themselves. Being thrown in to the trip on a hike through the Grand Teton was a great start to this class.
