Turner was packed…some were Campbell students while others had traveled 3 hours and 45 minutes away! I sat to the left with two of my friends ready to see the Skit Guys. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Suddenly, the lights went out and a video was displayed on the screen. Two men were depicted in the clip, dressed in different wigs, speaking in random accents, talking about prayer. Is this the Skit Guys? I thought to myself. It was the Skit Guys, but it was just the preview for what was to come.
Wow! What a performance. I definitely did not need to do any crunches after the show. My stomach hurt from laughing so hard. These two men performed skit after skit of everyday life. It may have been a mother embarrassing her child, individuals making the right choices, or how to live your life Christ like. Even though, we were all dying of laughter, there was a moral to each skit and a message to be heard. Combine these hilarious, meaningful skits, with the Skit Guys throwing free stuff at the crowd, and you had a pretty great performance.
I was able to meet them afterwards. They took the time to ask anyone who came up what their name was and to take a picture with them. They were extremely personable guys who have a talent to make people laugh and have a real passion for God. If you didn’t get to see them, you missed out; they were fabulous!

As you can see Campbell hasn’t always had a 2,800-pound bronze statue in front of the Convocation Center. The camel statue arrived in 2011, and since then, it has become a background for countless pictures.

We wanted to first of all say thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at Street Fair. Every single one of the chocolate covered pretzels were gone…even the broken ones. The photo booth was a smash! All those amazing outfits with the hats, bling, glasses, and feathers are sure to win some kind of fashion award. The photos turned out great. Ya’ll were some great looking camels! If you want a copy of the photos, they are on our Facebook page. Be sure to tag yourself and like our page.
We also had loads of you sign up with an interest in Yearbook. Can’t wait to see all of you at the meeting (Monday at 5:30). If you have any questions or special interests, don’t hesitate to email us.
Street Fair is always a fun event. Hello, you get free stuff!! What’s not to like. Between free snow cones, sweet tea, coffee, candy, popcorn, and more goodies, you get your food fix. There were also great coupons, giveaways, and so many clubs to sign up for. Maybe, one of the best parts has to be the live camels. Whether you got to ride one or were lucky enough to be spit on, they were pretty legit.
We are so incredibly excited about this year and hope to create an awesome book for you guys. It will be a great year full of many pictures, quotes, blog posts, and fun. Even if you aren’t a part of the Yearbook staff, you can still participate. Send us your photos of camel life, tell us an interesting story, give your opinion, or just follow us on Twitter and Facebook. We don’t want you guys to just be in the Yearbook but an interactive part of it.

So long summer — and hello CU! We hope everyone had a fun-filled summer — whether studying abroad, enjoying a nice vacation or some much-needed R&R, or even working on those internships and summer jobs.
Campbell certainly hasn’t taken a break while you were gone. There’s been tons of activity in Buies Creek in the last few months. And here’s just a few of the highlights:
1) It’s finally here! The Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine welcomed its first class of students on Monday, August 5. The Levine Hall of Medical Sciences supports state of the art simulation labs, anatomy labs, classroom lecture halls, study rooms and a small cafe. News outlets all over the country have been positively buzzing about Campbell’s newest school and we couldn’t be more Campbell Proud that it’s here!
2) No more “trailer in the sky.” Construction crews have been busy over at Barker-Lane Stadium. Significant progress is made daily at the new-look home of the Camels, with most of the grandstand’s structure and fixtures in place. Crews will begin installing seats in the coming days. With the main structure in place, interior utility work progresses in the tower, and masonry continues beneath the grandstand. Nearly all steel for the project is in place, as the team practices through training camp.
The 2013 season will begin on Aug. 31 at Charlotte. The team’s six-game home schedule will start with UVa.-Wise on Sept. 7 at 6 p.m.
3) Changes in leaders announced. Dr. Dwaine Greene, the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, has been selected as the next president of Georgetown College in Kentucky. Campbell’s loss is Georgetown’s gain. Congratulations, Dr. Greene! J. Rich Leonard took over as new dean of the Campbell Law School on July 15. And Dr. Ben Hawkins, dean of the School of Business announced his retirement come December. Keith Faulkner will take over as dean.
4) The Student Infirmary becomes the Campbell Health Center. Campbell University’s Health Center has opened its doors to the public. The Health Center located on the university’s main campus in Buies Creek now boasts a full medical staff and an in-house pharmacy, with specialities in family medicine, geriatrics, sports medicine, weight loss, counseling and OMM.
