An Interview with Intern Camille Loomis

Theological Horizons has been blessed this semester to have Camille Loomis as the new fundraising intern. Camille is a third-year from Fairfax, VA. She is majoring in Art History and Religious Studies and is involved in various organizations such as Hoos in Treble, First Year Players, and Phi Sigma Pi. Describe your internship with Theological Horizons. My internship focuses on the fundraising arm of Theological Horizons. It takes a lot of support to keep a non-profit growing, so part of my job is to learn and imagine how we can continue to bring the message of TH to more supporters, and to constantly expand our reach!

How did you get involved with Theological Horizons? I got involved with Theological Horizons by taking classes with Professor Charles Marsh, and learning about the extracurricular events going on at the Bonhoeffer House. I came to Vintage for the first time last spring, and have been coming ever since!

How has Theological Horizons impacted you and your time at UVa? I have stayed involved because I feel so welcome here. As someone without a traditional Christian education or upbringing, it is so wonderful to have found a faith home that is inclusive yet challenging. The Bonhoeffer House is a respite away from the student universe and a great reminder of the life outside our immediate concerns.
