Throwback Thursday:

Last March Campbell students learned Salsa by coming to the Rumley Center at Campbell where students could learn a little bit about the dance on campus. Students were taught basic moves and rhythms of salsa dance. Students came to the class in order to learn salsa dance moves for many different reasons. Salsa dance roots are based on Puerto Rican rhythms, Cuban Son, and San Montuno. However, the dance and music is always evolving. There are many different types of salsa dance based on the area they come from. In many styles of salsa dancing, as a dancer shifts their weight by stepping, the upper body remains level and nearly unaffected by the weight changes. Weight shifts cause the hips to move. Arm and shoulder movements are also incorporated. Salsa dance came to the Rumley Center at Campbell where students could learn a little bit about the dance on campus. Students were taught basic moves and rhythms of salsa dance. Students came to the class in order to learn salsa dance moves for many different reasons.

“I’m fascinated with Latin culture and I have a bicultural family so I’m really interested in Latin dance” said Audrey Jordan, a Freshman International Business and Spanish major.

While You Were Gone… April 10-12

This past weekend was filled with events such as Big SURS, Operation In As Much, and a variety of CAB events.  Students from all over the Big South Conference came to Campbell to show off what they have been researching.  Many students from Campbell received high awards for their research at the awards ceremony on Saturday.

Operation In As Much began Saturday morning and many different groups from campus went to different places to serve the local community.

Saturday night was the Harry Potter themed Human Chess Match.  Glasses similar to Harry’s were given out and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was shown outside while others competed in chess.  The winning team received a beanie with the Gryffindor colors.

Sunday was a trip to the whitewater center in Charlotte.  Students not only whitewater rafted, but they also, rock climbed, zip lined, and participated in ropes courses.  The last CAB trip of the year is coming up and there are still spaces available.  If you would like to go, visit the student center.  The trip is to Tennessee.

More events this week;

Friday: Baseball game at 6 pm and a Lacrosse game at 7 pm

Saturday: Baseball game at 4 pm

Sunday: Baseball at 2 pm and Lacrosse at 2 pm

While We Were Gone… Spring Break

Many things have happened over spring break.  From the Big South Tournament to the CAB trip, spring break is an exciting time that means we are getting closer to another school year being over.

Many students went to Myrtle Beach for spring break to participate in the Big South Tournament, to attend the game, and to enjoy the beach.  While the sea, fog, and wind may have been a setback for enjoying the beach, it was an exciting time at Coastal Carolina where the tournament was held.  The men’s basketball team had a good game on Wednesday, March 4, but lost to Garner Webb.  The women, however, won their game on Thursday and went on to the semi-finals.

The students who went on the cruise with CAB had an excellent time enjoying the weather of the tropics.  They were supposed to go to four ports: Nassau, Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Roatan.  However, the waves were too high for their boat to dock in Roatan and they only went to the other three ports, but who can complain with an otherwise excellent cruise in warm weather?!

For the Pine Burr staff, spring break was an exciting time when the last pages of this year’s yearbook was sent off to be printed.  We are excited to announce that our book will be ready for students to pick up in April and more details will be coming up as it gets closer.

I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing spring break and is ready to enjoy the last two months here at Campbell for the 2014-2015 year.

Once each student had been given a ticket for a t-shirt and a cupcake or two, the ceremony began.  Descendants of founder J.A. Campbell were there to see the statue of him unveiled.  It was really an exciting thing to have the family of J.A. Campbell with us for the ceremony on February 6th.

That Friday night, students gathered in Carter Gym for Sleepless Nights, a charity dance.  Students were to bring school supplies of an entrance fee of $2 to support local students.  The students danced the night away in their pajamas.

While you were Gone… January 30 – February 1

This past weekend was the second annual Desert Dive at Keith Hills Pool.  About 30 students came out to jump into cold water to receive a t-shirt.  They stood around at first listening to the water themed music from places such as Pirates of the Caribbean and other movies as they worried about how cold the water would be.  After the first person jumped in, more people followed in nervous anticipation.  The shirts they received were purple and said “oops, I double dipped!” referring to it being the second annual.
