More Changes for the Creek

Dean HawkinsCampbell is always black and orange; however, today, it was a little more so. The campus was filled with spooks and scares to celebrate Halloween. Buildings were decorated, and students and professors alike were transformed to scary creatures and other characters. Of course, there was candy going around too!

The Lundy-Fetterman School of Business held a little trunk or treat for all who possessed the Halloween spirit.  Unfortunately, due to the unwanted change in weather, the event was moved indoors.  Even with this tiny set back, spirits were high and candy was in abundance!

Along with tricks and treats, there were also plenty of great costumes around campus. Some went for simplicity, while others went for elaborate costumes. There was a mix of scary, funny, cute, and whimsical. Take a look at people around campus that donned Halloween garb. That is, if you dare!

Attention! Bonfire Cancelled!

The BSU bonfire is cancelled for tomorrow night due to conflict with the fire department. There will still be worship in Butler Chapel, so come on out!

BSU: Bonfire, S’mores, and U!

I don’t know about you, but this sudden cold weather has me wishing I could spend the day curled up in bed instead of going to class. You know what would make this sudden chill in the air a little bit more bearable? A bonfire!

Just imagine, the sound of wood crackling, the feeling of warmth waving over you like a big bear hug, that comforting smell of camp and wood filling your nose, not to mention the magnificent sight that is a fire reaching towards the treetops.

Doesn’t that sound great? Well, you’re in luck! This Thursday at 8pm in Saylor Park, Campbell’s Baptist Student Union will be hosting their annual bonfire! Not only will it be a fire to remember, there will also be worship and Chad Reed will be there to speak. Just be sure to bring a blanket to sit on and enjoy the worship, fellowship, and message, all under God’s beautiful creation. BSU will also be providing s’mores to snack on, so bring your appetite!
Hope to see you there! In the meantime, stay warm!

A Cat in a Hat? What’s Up With That?

We have all grown up with Dr. Seuss and his many characters. Those characters jumped out of the Dr. Seuss books onto a stage during “Seussical the Musical”, a production put on by Campbell University’s Department of Theatre Arts recently. The play combined a conglomeration of the best of Dr. Seuss books with a focus on Horton Hears a Who.Other characters from his many books also made appearances such as the Grinch, Gertrude McFuzz, and Yertle the Turtle. Of course, no Seuss experience is complete without Cat in the Hat. He served as the host of the show and kept everything going, even if that meant propelling down from a window.

The costumes and set props really made the show. Cat was nothing but sparkles and looked quite snazzy. The birds, such as Daisy and Gertrude, were flamboyant and covered in feathers. The Grinch had quite the pot belly and was looking very green. The Whos’ clothes were very fun and colorful, making for a cheerful scene. The costumes were displayed brilliantly with wonderful backdrops and set props. There was a circus tent, clover fields, Whoville, and a jungle present at various times throughout the play.

Overall, the production had the audience laughing, mesmerized, and singing along to the tunes. In the words of Dr. Seuss, “I meant what I said, and said what I meant”… the ticket to see this play was money well spent.
