Major: Health Care Management
I lived on campus my first year here at Campbell University as a Freshman. My first year here was great, but I realized I missed my environment back at home in Sanford. Not only do I have commitments, but I also have responsibilities. Commuting allowed me to stay focus and attend the school I wanted for my career. The best thing about commuting is that I still get to experience the college lie living at home. I have friends here on campus and back at home. The worse thing is that you are not as involved with the school, and its hard to attend events/ activities. Another this is group project, its tough to try to meet at night time when I’m a commuter and my group members live on campus. I want others to know that commuting is not bad thing, most of the time it can be an advantage!
Nick Ferrara, a senior business administration, marketing double major at Campbell University. He has spent most of his years at Campbell in the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business and loved it so much he decided to pursue a second major within the business school. I was able to ask Nick a few questions about his experiences within the business school.
