Grace Camp attends Adelphi University in New York, working towards a Bachelor of Science in nursing

ATASCADERO — Grace Camp of Atascadero has been named to Adelphi University’s Spring 2021 Dean’s List.

Camp is a junior at Adelphi and is working toward a Bachelor of Science in nursing. She was among a select group of outstanding students recognized by Adelphi’s deans of Arts and Sciences, Education and Health Science, Business, Nursing, and Public Health, Social Work, and Psychology for their superior academic performance.

Camp was “born and raised” in Atascadero and graduated from Atascadero High School in 2018.


“I’ve always wanted to be a nurse,” said Camp. “For as long as I can remember, that has been one of my biggest goals in life. Many of my family members who have passed away also worked in health care, so it’s something that I hold very close to me and know I can honor them through my career.”

Camp joins the ranks of full-time students who are registered for 12 or more credits and have completed at least nine graded credits with a GPA of 3.5 or above for the semester. This recognition becomes part of her academic record and is entered into her transcript.

“I honestly didn’t know I made the Dean’s List until my dad sent me an article about it,” said Camp. “It didn’t even cross my mind. I’ve worked really hard for the last three years to get into the program at Adelphi, and I am really excited to start the nursing program there in New York this fall.”

Adelphi University, New York, is a highly awarded, nationally ranked, powerfully connected doctoral research university and boasts a world-class faculty, hands-on learning, and innovative ways to support academic and career success.

Recognized as a Best College by U.S. News and World Report, Adelphi is Long Island’s oldest private, coeducational university. It serves more than 7,500 students at its main campus in Garden City, New York—just 23 miles from New York City’s cultural and internship opportunities. Students can also attend one of the university’s dynamic learning hubs located in Manhattan, the Hudson Valley, and Suffolk County, or they also have the option of attending online.

“I think that making the Dean’s List proves that my hard work is coming to fruition and that I can do anything I put my heart into fully,” Camp said. “This journey has been anything but easy, but I know it is what I was meant to do. Changing the healthcare world for the better is not only something I am passionate about but something I know I can do.”
