“As we were finalizing admissions papers, we ran into Campbell University President Jerry Wallace on campus and were able to speak with him. He really made us feel like we were already at home. That’s when my parents truly fell in love with the school and the caring spirits of the staff here at Campbell University.”

Each year a new family is chosen, this weekend the 2015 family will be announced at the game on Saturday at 6pm. Please remember to come attend and support you Campbell football team!!
