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.

Here is what is going on this week:

Monday: Woman’s Basketball Game at 7 p.m. in Gore Arena.  Free Camels for a Cure shirts!  Greek Recruitment begins.

Tuesday:  Founder’s week Celebration begins.  Men’s Basketball Game at 7 p.m. in Gore Arena.  Dress up like Founder J.A. Campbell for a chance to win $250.  Gaylord bobble heads will be given out.

Wednesday: Founder’s Day Scavenger Hunt going on all day.  Check out CAB’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for clues all day long.

Thursday: Women’s Basketball Game at 7 p.m. in Gore Arena.

Friday: Men and Women’s Tennis matches at 2 p.m.  At 3 p.m. the Founder’s Day Statue will be unveiled.  T-shirts will be given out and free cupcakes.  Wear orange all day long to celebrate! At 9 p.m. is Sleepless Nights in Carter Gym.  Wear your pajamas and bring school supplies to join in with a charity dance.


Date Night

On Thursday, January 29th at 7:00pm over 30 students gathered in the Rumley Center to enjoy an evening of fun and festivities centered around dating on campus.

Date Night, the special event hosted by the Campus Activities Board, provided students with an enjoyable evening of games that tested their resilience as a couple and their potential to become a couple in the future.

“It was a lot of fun. It was cool that we knew that much about each other.” said Beth Potter, a Freshman biology major and participant in the first round of games that evening, the newly-wed game which hilariously tested how well each couples knew one another.

“I thought we were gonna miss a couple of them that we got right, that was pretty cool.” said Trevor Miller, a Junior Exercise Science Major, and one of the evening’s game winners, rising to the top of the newly-wed game.

With two rounds of humorously exciting games that were definite crowd pleasers, the evening’s participants played not only the newly-wed game to test their knowledge of one another, but then played the dating game to test their potential compatibility, much in the fashion of speed dating.

Featuring corny pickup lines, the dating game put a comical twist on the traditionally clique speed dating environment, treating the students gathered to a more enjoyable and relaxed environment.

From hilarious couple stories to cheesy pick up lines to fantastic prizes and the latest music, the Campus Activity Board’s Date Night was a crowd pleasing event that brought dozens of students together for a casual evening away from the cold outside and impending homework to enjoy one another and put a very humorous spin on the age old game of romance on a college campus.

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!

While you were Gone… November 21-23

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!

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!
