A picture of eight stares you in the face when you enter Camille Tinney’s office. Those eight would be her children, seven daughters and one son. Two of her children have already graduated from Cabrini and another two are in the process.

Beneath her children’s pictures are pictures of her grandchildren, four boys and two girls. A glance to the right, and you see the miniature shrine of Harrison Ford on her bulletin board.

Tinney began at Cabrini in 1994 as a receptionist in the continuing education office. In 1996 she applied for the administration assistant position in the registrar. Currently, she is the acting assistant registrar.

Tinney wakes up everyday free from any dreadful thoughts of going to work. She enjoys her job mostly because of the connection that she has with the students. “If I can go that extra mile for a student, I try to,” Tinney said. She also works in a very close-knit environment. The staff in the registrar’s office are not only co-workers but also friends. This friendship foundation helps them provide the very best for the students.

Registration keeps the registrar’s office very busy, especially when it comes time for sophomores and freshmen to register because some of the classes begin to fill up. This is when Tinney’s patience and “keep cool, keep calm” motto come in handy. When a student is upset because of registering, she tries to calm them down before they leave the office. She offers the advice that she can or sends them to someone who can offer the advice that they need.

After a long week in the office, Tinney enjoys shopping on the weekends. She loves shopping at all stores except for the grocery store. She also enjoys meeting with friends for lunch or, of course, spending time with her husband of 37 years.
