To start off this past weekend was the statue unveiling on Friday at 3 p.m. This last event of Founder’s Week had shirts and cupcakes free to students which made many people come out. By 2:30 there was a long line of students who wanted to make sure they received a t-shirt of their size.
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.
On Saturday, campus was filled with many students from local middle and high schools for Science Olympiad. Many Campbell students volunteered by supervising and grading the events.
Greek recruitment also ended this past weekend and our campus now has many new Greek members to different sororities and fraternities.

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.

There was not much happening this past weekend on campus, but students who went on the CAB trip to Winterplace West Virginia had a great time. They either skied or snowboarded all day on Saturday. It was about half and half of students who had been before and those who were brand new to the slopes. Some students were so good they went on the black diamonds, which are the hardest trails. There were no accidents which were life threatening, but one person in the group did get a concussion. Always wear a helmet when skiing or snowboarding! Inside the ski lodge was a singing/karaoke competition among everyone who was at Winterplace. To see a video of students from Campbell singing, check out CAB’s Instagram, @cu_cab. CAB does this trip every year so make sure if you want to go next year you sign up early!

As a new semester and new year begins, remember that you have a fresh start and new opportunity to become more involved on campus even if you think you are involved enough. If you meant to go to club meetings and worship groups last semester, go this semester. They always want new members and its a great way to meet new friends. Don’t forget about joining the Pine Burr Yearbook staff! We are always taking in new members as well.
Today begins the first full week of the spring 2015 semester. With it only being the fourth day of classes, chances are that tests don’t need to be studied for yet. This means there is hardly an excuse to miss out on tonight’s men’s basketball game against Coastal Carolina at 7. This game is going to be nationally televised and everyone has the opportunity to get a free t-shirt. Prior to the game, CAB is having a Three Kings party in the Rumley Center at 5.
There is much going on the rest of this week as well:
Tuesday January 12, 2015
11:45 Women’s basketball game
Thursday January 14, 2015
4:00 Wicked Trip leaves from the Fine Arts parking lot
5:00 Relay For Life Captains meeting in the trustee room
7:00 Men’s basketball game

1:00 Women’s basketball game
4:00 Men’s basketball game
This past weekend there were many performances going on from the opera Amal and the Night Visitors on both Friday and Saturday, and the Miss Campbell Pageant on Saturday. The opera was well done and the perfect length of time at only an hour. It got the viewers in the Christmas spirit because it was about the three kings going to a poor families house on their way to see the Christ child. The opera was filled with comedic relief and was done very well.
The Miss Campbell Pageant was also filled with laughter as the emcee cracked jokes throughout the entire pageant to keep it lively. The pageant consisted of an opening number dance, Campbell wear, talent, and evening gown. There were nine girls competing and for Campbell wear, they all wore something that portrayed what each girl does at Campbell. The winner was Chelsey Bennett who will be representing Campbell for the next year.
In athletics this weekend, women’s basketball won on Friday with men’s basketball loosing on Saturday.
Have a great Thanksgiving!

It was freezing last night; however, there were students wearing leis, shorts, tank tops, and sunglasses. Why? Because it was beach night at the men’s basketball game. One lucky winner even won an all expense paid trip to Myrtle Beach! Wow!
Last night’s game wasn’t just special because of the theme, it was also a win for the Camels, putting them first in the North Division!! With a score of 65-63, the Fighting Camels beat Radford after a close game. Not only that, but Reco McCarter’s 360 dunk made headlines on Sportscenter. How great is that?
If you didn’t go to the game last night, you missed out on a fun time, but at least you didn’t get odd looks for inappropriately dress in January.
