Faculty Friday: Alex Baumann

What made you decide to work at Campbell? 

“I had an excellent Campbell experience as a student. I got involved in as many activities and attended as many events as I could, and graduated with life-long friends. During my time at Campbell, I developed a passion for higher education, and knew I wanted to stay involved in the college experience as a career. After graduating from Campbell with a psychology degree in 2015, I received a master’s degree in college counseling and student development from NC State University. In 2017, after graduating from NC State, I moved back to Buies Creek after I married my now husband, Eric (also a Campbell grad), who had recently accepted a position in Campbell’s Campus Recreation department. As luck would have it, a position in Campbell’s office of Annual Giving opened up, which would allow me to work with college students through the Student Alumni Ambassador program and Call Team.”

What is your favorite thing about Campbell? 

“As a student, my favorite thing about Campbell was the opportunity to form genuine relationships with all types of people. The small campus in a rural setting is the perfect setting to develop life-long friendships through long walks, late nights working in Carter Gym, and weekend adventures like riding bikes to the “blinky light.”  As a staff member, I continue to enjoy forming relationships with other staff members all across campus. It’s a truly special place!”

 Any accomplishments or something (s) you’re proud of accomplishing while working here?

“I am especially proud of supervising the Call Team last year as they crushed their fundraising goal, raising over $50,000. It was inspiring to see student callers use their amazing skills and abilities to serve their school in such a meaningful way. I have now transitioned to a communications role in the office of Alumni Engagement, but the Call Team will always be a special group to me.”

Alex also advises the Student Alumni Ambassador program, and she has taught CUFS for 3 years.
