Let’s Get Political: Presidential National Debate @ CU!

On October 3rd, 2012, politics filled the air at Campbell University as students watched the Presidential National Debate on that cool Wednesday night.  Both the Campbell College Democrats and Republicans hosted their own watch parties to stir up the tension already present.

Dr. Sal Mercogliano headed the Republican watch party, which had a head count of about 35 people.  Ronald Rabin and his wife attended in support of the Republicans.  The Democratic watch party was headed by Louis Duke, a sophomore here at Campbell.  There was a turnout of about 63 people there to support. Now comes the conversation starter. Who do you think dominated the debate? Romney or Obama?

More Bricks?

You don’t have to be at Campbell long to realize that there are a lot of bricks. Bricks make up the buildings, walkways, and even the random walls around campus. It shouldn’t surprise you to see more bricks being put down, then.

As I looked out of my room window in Jones to check the weather, I saw a new addition to the view. A giant, yellow backhoe sat outside digging what looked to be a new path. When I looked to the right, there sat a huge stack of bricks ready to be used. They are making a new brick path that runs between Jones and Bryan dorms.  It looks like the number of bricks at Campbell is increasing.

Big Sweep– Get Your Brooms Ready!

You are trying to enjoy the great outdoors when you see the dreaded eyesore of trash. It might be a hike in the woods, a canoe trip down the river, or even just riding down the road that you encounter the icky debris. We seem to always run into trash. We may grumble about it and scowl; however, the truth of the matter is, we can help. It might not be your trash, but it is your world. It is important that we keep it user-friendly.

This Saturday, you have the perfect excuse to help make a difference. It is the annual Big Sweep Day. The non-profit organization was started by Dr. Lundie Spence in 1987. At first, it was a spur of the moment decision to clean up the coast, but when 1,000 volunteers showed up to collect over 14 tons of trash, it grew into so much more. In 1989 the effort became known as Big Sweep and expanded to cleaning more than waterways. Since the founding, it has had 300,000 volunteers and picked up 10.3 million pounds of debris in North Carolina.

You can be a part of this outstanding effort. Go to to sign up for Big Sweep. Bring your friends and trash bags and go and conquer trash. Be the hero for the environment. Who knows, you could find something really bizarre. I know I have found a ceiling fan, bed frame, doll, and so much more when doing Big Sweep. I didn’t think picking up trash could be fun, but it is definitely an adventure that gets you outdoors and doing something worthwhile.

Ready, set, go!

Not Your Typical Battle

Battles are exciting, intense, fun, and something to look forward to. Whoa! Battles fun and something to look forward to? Yeah, that would be a false statement unless, of course, you are referring to Battle of the Bands. Thankfully, I am referring to Battle of the Bands and not the battles in Western Civilization you might be studying.

This battle will be held in Turner Auditorium at 8 pm tomorrow, Oct. 4th. Many of the bands are made up of Campbell students. Come out and watch the bands duke it out for a night that is bound to be intense, and yes, fun. It will not be your Western Civilization battle by any means. It is going to be a rocking camel fight like no other!

A Little Piece of Home

The Brake Family

So many students make Campbell their home away from home; however, students still miss where they come from and their families. This weekend, many Campbell students had the pleasure of having a little piece of home come to big ole’ Buies Creek– their families! Family weekend is a great chance for students’ family to come and see what students are doing around campus. They finally get to see what actually happens in “camel country”. Families also get to take take part in some awesome activities put on across campus. Allyson Brake, gives an insider’s look to Family weekend as a student and a work study student in the Athletic Marketing & Promotions Department.

The highlight of the weekend for many families was attendance at the volleyball and football games on Saturday. Being a student worker for the Athletic Marketing & Promotions Department, I was able to see first hand how many families really did enjoy these events, including my own. Volleyball was a lot of fun, especially during the game of “Hit the Spot” which encouraged everyone to come participate and try and win a prize by hitting some awesome Campbell gear with a volleyball serve.

The football game saw one of the biggest home crowds of the year, including my own parents and brother; that is until the rain came! Even though the score was not in Campbell’s favor, and the lightening delay caused many people to change their plans, it was an amazing chance to be able to reconnect with our families who did so much to help us get to Campbell!
