This week promises to be a busy time in Buies Creek, as there are a lot of events going on around campus. For starters, it is Founders Week, which is a week to reflect upon and celebrate Campbell University’s proud history. University president Dr. J. Bradley Creed will kick off the Founder’s Week festivities by leading a panel discussion on “leaving your legacy,” hosted by the office of Spiritual Life on Monday at 5 p.m. Also in honor of Founders Week, the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will be hosting a game of capture the flag in the academic circle on Tuesday at 7 p.m. The most notable event of the week, however, is Campbell Giving Day, which will be held on Wednesday, February 5th. This is an all day event that provides students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends with an opportunity to give back to Campbell. The university’s goal for Wednesday is to have 1,300 different donors give back and help support the Campbell mission. Finally, on Friday February 7th Campbell University and Johnson Memorial Church will host the Night to Shine, which is a prom for special needs children ages 14 and up at Johnson Memorial Church in Angier.
There are several athletic events being hosted this week as well. On Thursday, February 6th at 2 p.m. the Women’s Tennis team will host N.C Central for their first home match of the year. On Saturday, February 8th, Wrestling takes on Chattanooga at 2 p.m. in Carter Gym. Also on Saturday, Women’s basketball hosts UNC Asheville at 2 p.m. for “National Girl and Women in Sport Night,” and men’s basketball takes on Presbyterian at 4:30 p.m. to conclude the basketball double header in Gore Arena.
