At 3 p.m. the war began and many students were quickly hit by their an assassin. At 7 that night, there were only 4 students left. 8 o’clock was the time when it would be over for the day and there were only two left for the beginning of the next morning. Saturday, the two opponents were ready to play by 10 am, but the game only lasted a few minutes before the winner was announced. Celeste Philips took home the prize of a Samsung tablet.

Friday night was Pitch Perfect Night in Turner Auditorium. Many students, such as Jacob Carlsen, enjoyed showcasing their talents by getting on stage and singing. Jacob sang Don’t Stop Believing by Journey and said, “At first I was kinda nervous and shy about performing in front of everyone but as the evening progressed I saw the excitement and decided to give it a try. It was a very fun evening.” After everyone got tired of singing, they sat back and watched one of the best college movies: Pitch Perfect.
Saturday, many students went to Appalachian State to watch them play Campbell in football. The night wasn’t exactly the best with rain and a delay of the game at halftime. All the students that went with CAB left when the delay was announced at halftime. Our Camels did their best and fought hard against the mountaineers, but we still lost with a score of 0-66.
Sunday, was the day where 14 students spent the night in the Oasis to make sure they could get a spot on the spring break cruise with CAB. They will be going to the Western Caribbean which includes, Cozumel, Coasta Maya, Roatan, and Nassau. There are still more spots available and for only $500, it is a great deal!

For a period of about 24 hours, students hide from and shoot other students with a water gun provided by CAB. What many people don’t know, is that it is not just bragging rights that the winner receives. CAB is known for giving excellent prizes at events such as BINGO, and water gun assassin is no different. This year, the winner will receive a Samsung Tablet. Sign ups are still going on for this year, don’t miss out on having the opportunity to make history by winning the third annual water gun assassin.

This past weekend was the end of the Welcome Week activities. If you didn’t stick around campus to enjoy the Party in the Park on Friday, you really missed out. From snow cones and pizza to mud volleyball and water slides, there was something there for everyone, even if it was just to relax and watch fellow students get muddy.
On Saturday, students left early in the morning to go on the final Welcome Week extravaganza: a trip to Wrightsville Beach. If they wanted to, they could even take a surfing lesson. It was certainly a great opportunity to just relax on the beach after a few days of classes.
Back in Buies Creek on Saturday, Campbell Athletics brought free Bojangles biscuits and sandwiches for the first students who came to watch the men’s soccer game against George Mason. Another exciting thing for fans, was that the Coke kiosk came and everyone was able to print one Coke with their name on it and one for a friend as a part of the Share a Coke campaign. Even Gaylord joined in on the fun:
Even though the Coke kiosk had to shut down for a little while because of rain, it did open back up later on in the day while the soccer game was still going on.
If you are sad you missed out on these fun activities, don’t worry. Campbell always has fun stuff going on. Just check out this week’s activities:
Monday: CAB General Meeting at 5 in Turner Auditorium
Tuesday: Capture the Flag at 10 in Academic Circle
Wednesday: Last day to register and add any classes
Thursday: First home football game at 7 against UNC Charlotte
Friday: Women’s soccer game at 7 against UNCW

Last week held a great many zombies on campus, and no I don’t mean sleep deprived students. There were literal zombies. Why? Because it was Zombie themed week here on campus. CAB hosted several events from Spring Fling where students volunteered their time to put smiles on developmentally disabled adults faces to a zombie carnival complete with funnel cake, rides, and games. The week ended on a less than dead note with a Great Gatsby themed formal in Garner. There were tons of flapper dresses, feathers, and glitz at the event where students danced the night away. Thank you CAB for a great week of fun! We hope you joined in on the festivities and are feeling a little more “alive” this week!
