Jessica Perry (’17) is ready to read with the Campbell alumni book club

Jessica Perry, smiling, reads The Power of Habit.

Jessica Perry (’17) is one of more than 225 alumni currently 
signed up to participate in our alumni book club, an online discussion group that begins June 17. In the club, alumni will have the chance to connect over literature, books on self improvement, history, psychology, and more. Read why Perry chose to join the book club and her perspective on lifelong learning below.

What did you study at Campbell University?

I graduated from Campbell in 2017 with a degree in Business Administration with a Marketing concentration.

What are your current and future career plans?

I’m currently working with a golf club, doing their marketing and advertising while taking online design classes through my local community college. I hope to gain experience through both the classes and the job in order to eventually work in the marketing department of a corporation.

Why did you want to join the Campbell University alumni book club?

The alumni book club appealed to me because I love reading. It’s also another way to stay involved in the Campbell community and to connect with other alumni. It’s like the best of both worlds!

What does lifelong learning mean to you?

Lifelong learning means continually growing and furthering your knowledge every day. Whether it’s trying new things, reading, stepping outside your comfort zone, or furthering your education, learning never stops and helps us understand the world around us even more and helps us find new skills that we never knew we had.

Why should other alumni join the book club?

I would encourage other alumni to participate in the book club so that they can stay in touch with other Camels, while using it to grow in their learning. I’m hoping to see different perspectives from discussing the books while reuniting with my Campbell family.

To participate in the alumni book club, register here, and don’t forget to pick up a copy of our first book, The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg. The book club begins on June 17. Registration will open again for future books, but be sure to register by June 16 to participate in discussion for The Power of Habit.
