Meet your NACCU Volunteers: Nikayla Lampkins
Meet your NACCU Volunteers:
This is the latest installment of the NACCU series highlighting our association volunteers. NACCU provides programs and services to our members, many which would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of our volunteer leaders. Volunteers, whether they are a committee member, a Board member, or an onsite volunteer at a conference, are all important in making NACCU volunteer-driven programs an exceptional experience for our card industry peers.

Name: Nikayla Lampkins
School: Tufts University (MA)
Volunteer Role: Engagement Committee
What is your role at your institution?
I serve as the Customer Support Team Lead for Auxiliary Services.
Where was the first NACCU conference you attended held?
The first NACCU conference I attended was last spring in St. Louis!
What is your favo(u)rite thing about volunteering with your NACCU committee?
It’s amazing how much information can be gathered through speaking with just a few people. The Engagement Committee is working on organizing a reference document for campuses looking to move to a mobile credential. We’re collecting information from campuses that have already made the switch and it’s incredible how quickly this information seems to be coming together just through the few conversations I’ve had with people!
What show are you binge-watching right now?
Currently binge-watching Married at First Sight. “Experts” match couples based on personalities, lifestyles, etc., and the couple meets for the first time at the altar. The couple are together for several weeks and then they decide if they want to stay married or get divorced. It has a success rate of about 20%.
What is your go-to coffee or tea order?
I’m a big Starbucks Frappuccino fan!
What is your favo(u)rite memory from when you were a student?
The start of the fall semester was always my favorite part of undergrad. Learning about the new classes I was about to take, moving into a new space, and watching the leaves turn color was always so exciting!
What is one thing that would surprise people about you?
I grew up in a town of 600 people – it was a big culture shock when I moved to Boston for college.
Would you rather live without heat and AC or live without social media?
I would rather live without social media. Winter in Massachusetts might be a bit brutal without heat!
