Parties–who doesn’t like them? Most do like them, but there was a different sort of party going on in Lundy Fetterman recently thanks to the Dr. Merry for hosting. If you missed out, don’t worry, it is only the first of many!
On January 31, 2014, Dr. Merry hosted the first Campbell lan party of 2014. There will be three more lan parties in 2014; one more this semester and two more in the fall semester. For those of you who have never heard of a lan party, it is a gathering of people who play games together on their computer off line. No video games are required, everyone just brings a laptop or desktop computer to connect to a router with everyone else.
Dr. Merry is the ITS professor at Campbell and has been here since 2006. That same year the first Campbell lan party was held. This event is not limited to current Campbell students. Alumni such as David Helms often comes back to take part in the festivities and even helps organize the event. “The event is a wonderful time to bond,” says freshman Grant Merry, son of Dr. Merry.
