Did you know?

Did you know that Campbell University offers a Spanish clinic for children? This past weekend a couple of our Spanish Majors/ Minors helped out during the clinic. During the clinic on Saturday morning,  our students taught and helped out all of the younger children. With this, we teach them different topics, for example: teach them fruits in Spanish, the months, or even body parts. The Spanish clinic helps others, but most of all it lets future Camels know we are the place to go! Go Camels!!

Visitation Week

This week over one hundred future students visited our beautiful campus. With such a beautiful day our leaders have made the campus tours a success. We hope to see all of these students in the near future and welcome them as a Camel! Go  Camels!!!!IMG_8425

Education Major

Name: Yecenia Arellano-Parent

Hometown: Broadway, NC

Major: Education

Year: Senior

 

Why did you choose Campbell University as your school to pursue your degree?

When I first chose to come here to Campbell, I was originally an nursing major. Campbell was only thirty minutes from home, and I was excited to start my journey as a future nurse. After my first year as a nursing major I realized nursing was not my calling. After that year I decided to change my major to Education.

Do you regret choosing Campbell University?

I would never regret choosing Campbell as my home! The education program here is amazing and I’m overly excited to become a teacher and to tell my future kids about Campbell University!

Life as a Commuter

Name: Faith Rives

Home Town: Sanford, North Carolina

Age: 20

Major: Health Care Management

Year: Sophomore

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!

Founders week

It was finally Founders week!! Last week students gave back to Campbell.  On Wednesday, February 7, 2018 was Campbell giving day. Students took the time out of their day to donate and also  to take pictures in front of a big present located in the academic circle stating why they were giving to Campbell this year! Some students gave to Campbell because they wanted to see more improvement, some believed it’s a place where students matter, and some simply loved their Campbell experience. Give to the Campbell leads to great campaign and it also helps build a student union. With giving Campbell, as a whole there is  hope to increase support for scholarships and increase in the camel community.  We are excited to see how much this improves Campbell, and we are even more excited for next year. Go Camels!!

It’s Here: We’re Graduating

It’s finally that time. Most of us thought that this day would never come. Some are dreading it and others are ready to start a new chapter. When we graduated high school, college became an anticipation and a start of something new. Four more years at a new school, with new people, and a brand new area we aren’t familiar with. Freshman year was filled with firsts and students became comfortable with the college atmosphere. We could finally say, “this is going to be the best four years of my life.” Little did we know the work was going to start piling on and we weren’t going to have time for all of the things we used to. Naps became a part of life, and taking food to class just so you’d be able to have a meal during the day became a part of your every day routine.

Strong friendships have been made, you’ve joined clubs and are now known on campus, but before we knew it we’re already upperclassmen. Two years have flown by and at this point the years are only going to get faster. It’s time we started to attend campus traditions and making the most of what freedom we take so much for granted. Every assignment, group project, presentation and exam seems to pile on one after another and finally, senioritis kicks in. Every faculty members nightmare. Students begin to check out as they start thinking about their future and how bad they’re ready to get out of Buies Creek!

Little do we know, as graduation quickly approaches, everything begins to set in. The friends we’ve gotten so close with might not be going in the same path that I am, I need to start applying to jobs, I have an interview on the same day as I have a test and I can’t miss it, I need to finish out with good grades not only for my GPA’s sake but so I’ll be able to graduate in the first place, and I’m about to leave this place I’ve become so familiar with to start a life for myself…I’m scared! What was the best four years of your life has already come to an end in the blink of an eye.

One month from today, I, along with many others in my class will be walking across that stage to receive the piece of paper we’ve all been working so hard towards. No matter how excited and anxious we may be, never forget about the memories you’ve made during your time at Campbell, but cherish that moment as you walk across that stage. We’ve worked so hard for it.

I wish everyone who’s graduating luck as they take on the next steps in their life.
