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.

A New Club is in the Creek

Communication students at an earlier department event

Yesterday marked the first meeting of the Communication Studies Club. It is a new club that has been formed to hold communication events for those in the major or interested in becoming a Communication major. The first meeting was just an informational one; however, everyone was excited about getting t-shirts and the up and coming events. The club is already planning on participating in Operation Christmas Child. Energy was high last night with a lot of fun conversations, but what do you expect with a bunch of Comm majors. We typically talk a lot. Even though there is still more planning to be done, response has been good, and everyone is excited!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I Give You Your Homecoming King

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“I am honored to serve as the 2012 Homecoming King, and to have Lindsay Rusche serving with me as Homecoming Queen. As Executive Vice President of the Student Government and Editor-in-Chief of the Pine Burr Yearbook, I have tried to work hard to represent the students of Campbell University. Nothing makes me happier, than seeing my fellow students thrive and benefit from our community. Our university is much different than your average school. There are few other places where you can meet with professors and they actually know who you are. There are few other places where you can find the comfort of faith and fellowship like in Buies Creek, and there are few other places where students can truly make an impact on their university. These things make me Campbell proud; and I am privileged to represent such distinct ideals. I have never felt this pride stronger than seeing a sea of orange along the Homecoming parade route or peering out at the passionate Fighting Camels fans at the 45 yard line during halftime. I thank everyone who voted to give me this opportunity to represent Orange and Black and for reminding me of why we are blessed to call Buies Creek home. Go Camels!”

A Calling Found

Many students on campus find themselves bored or not ever finding their niche. Not Emily McIntosh, though! In her first semester, Emily was looking for a job for work study. As we all know, those are not always easy to find. What started out as a search for a job, became a discovery of something she loved and wonderful connections.

“In a desperate attempt to find a work-study opportunity, I went to my advisor, Dr. Farmer. He introduced me to Chris Hemeyer, the Athletics Marketing Coordinator here at Campbell. Soon after my search, I was learning everything from the ins and outs of a video camera to how to edit and create videos for Campbell Athletics.

After my first go-around at filming and editing, I knew quickly that I was in the right place! I have learned more in one Tuesday afternoon than I would in a weeks worth of class. Not only that, I was able to take what I had learned in my previous Comm. Studies classes and apply them to this experience. When I had the chance to interview the wrestling coaches for the upcoming year, I took what I had learned in Writing for the Mass Media about how to conduct and interview and put it into practice. Take it from me – there are few better feelings than applying what you heard from a lecture into real life!

The time I spent with Mr. Hemeyer and his colleagues has also helped me decide my career path. As an incoming Freshman, I was a Generalist Communication Studies major. But after this experience, I changed my concentration to Broadcasting and Electronic Media.

On a typical day, I will do one of many things. Some days, I go on-site and interview coaches and players using a video camera and a microphone. Other days, I film b-roll for other projects. Still other days, I stay in McKay Hall, editing and creating videos to broadcast on as well as the Fighting Camels official Facebook and Twitter page. And to think, people actually get paid to do all of this!

Put simply, the opportunity I have been given has provided me with more than I could ever expect. The connections I have made and the experiences I have gained not only provide a great way to pass the time, they also give me that much-needed advantage in the job market after I graduate.”

There you have it. Don’t be afraid to go on your own search for something you like! Check out these videos. Emily edited and helped promote the volleyball clip and filmed, edited and created the basketball segment.
