While You Were Gone… January 23-25

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!











This week:

Monday: 5 p.m. CAB General Meeting in Turner Auditorium where you get to find out who will be performing at the spring concert!    8 p.m. Men’s Basketball Game in Gore Arena.  Wear orange and get free pretzels!

Wednesday: 7 p.m. Men’s Basketball Game in Gore arena.

Thursday: 7 p.m. Date Night in the Rumley Center.  Meet new people!

Saturday: 1 p.m. Woman’s Basketball Game in Gore Arena.       3 p.m. 2nd annual Dessert Dive at the Keith Hills Pool.  Jump in the cold pool to get a t-shirt and bragging rights.


New Year, New Opportunities

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

Saturday January 16, 2015
1:00 Women’s basketball game
4:00 Men’s basketball game

Exam Break Schedule

The semester is almost over and exams are here.  So that you can have some exam breaks and stress relief, CAB, SGA, and Counseling Services have all come up with events for students to relax during this stressful time.

Monday December 1st is the first one and it will be in the Oasis from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. This will be a time to study together while also participating in games.  Prizes will be awarded!

Tuesday December 2nd is the famed midnight breakfast.  Make sure you are ready with lots of patience if you plan to wait for this free food and a free t-shirt.

Wednesday is free Bojangles in Lillington from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. If you need some food to refuel your brain, come out to get a free supreme kids meal.

Thursday December 4th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. there is going to be a stress free zone in the Alumni Room in Marshbanks.  There will be chair massages, coloring, Play-Doh, and bubble wrap popping.

On Friday, before those nasty Saturday exams, will be cookie decorating.  This will be in the Rumley Center at 7 p.m. and will be followed by the movie Elf in Turner Auditorium at 9 p.m.

Throughout the week be on the lookout for other study breaks in the library and even your dorms.

Have a great exam week and don’t end up like this guy!

Throwback Thursday

The Miss Campbell Pageant is this weekend and there are 9 lovely ladies that will be wearing beautiful dresses and competing.  After taking a peak at the 1994 Pine Burr Yearbook, I discovered some other lovely ladies in pretty dresses.


These dresses really show their era.  Come to the pageant this weekend to make sure contestants are not wearing gowns with puffy sleeves!  This is the first time in many years that the Miss Campbell Pageant has been held.   They will be bringing it back on Saturday at 8:00 in Turner Auditorium and you don’t want to miss out!

While you were gone… November 14-16

The campus was quite quiet this past weekend as many students went home.  However, with this being the last full week of classes in the fall semester, the campus is buzzing again.

On Friday at 6, CAB hosted a mocktail party serving cheese, crackers, fruit and of course, mocktails.  As students arrived who signed up for the event, they saw easels set up with canvases.  Each canvas had an outline of a camel with a palm tree.  A wine and design company walked the students through the steps of painting their camel.  Just because the picture was already drawn on the canvas, does not mean they all looked the same.  Some students added sunglasses or added an army flair.

At the same time as the mocktail party was the woman’s basketball game.  They won against Pfeiffer.  The men’s basketball team also won at their game following the women’s game.

The rest of the weekend was quiet here in the creek, but check out what’s happening this week:

Tuesday:  As part of Homelessness Week, watch a documentary in Turner Auditorium about homeless in Wilmington, NC.  You can receive connections 200 credit.

At 8:30 is the Christmas Tree Lighting in academic circle

Wednesday:  Winter Formal at 8 p.m. in the convocation center.

Box-a-Thon in academic circle starting at 9 p.m. see what it is like to sleep in a box all night.

Thursday: Mockingjay Midnight premire! If you signed up, the CAB trip leaves at 5 p.m.

Friday: Women’s basketball game at 7 p.m.

Watch The Soloist in Turner Auditorium at 9 p.m.

Q&A with Campbell Faces

Collins Lopez, senior Political Science/ Pre-Law major, talks about comic books, cemeteries, and studying abroad.












Q: What is an interesting fact about you?


A: I like comic books. Superman is the greatest of all time. He is a hero you can always look up to, even in his darkest times.


Q: Have you been to Comic-Con?


A: I was planning on going to the one in San Diego, but I couldn’t. This month I’ll be going to the North Carolina one with some friends. It’s my first time, so I won’t be dressing up, though.


Q: Why did you choose to major in Political Science/ Pre-Law?


A: I think politics are interesting and necessary. The study of politics really flows into everything. I also love the law. I can apply it to different situations, like from Comm Law I can apply everything I learn to shows like How to Get Away With Murder and Law and Order, which is really interesting.


Q: What do you want to do after graduation?


A: I’m hoping to go to Campbell’s Law School. They have a dual program with NC State that I want to do so I can get a masters in Political Science. I also want to travel. I want to see Europe. I was going to study abroad, but the timing didn’t work out. I’m definitely looking into doing that in Law School. I also love cemeteries, and there are so many in Europe, like High Gate cemetery in London. The history is just so amazing.


Q: What do you do around campus?


A: I am one of the founding fathers of Kappa Sigma. When I came to Campbell, I knew there wasn’t any Greek life and I wanted to change that for the brotherhood that is involved. It was a great opportunity and I am happy to have so many brothers in our chapter.


Q: What is your favorite color?


A: Gray, which is weird because there are no gray areas in law.
