Come out to the Jam Session, hosted by CAB, in the Wallace Student Center on March 17th, 2016 at 8pm. Xzavier Williams, a returning participant of the Jam Sessions believes, “ the overall talent that comes out is very good and it is a lot of fun to watch the talent. It is also a lot of fun to meet new people and hang out with friends.” Xzavier loves to sing, and perform songs that he has written himself. If you enjoy singing or even just playing an instrument this is a great event to network and socialize with other talented students.

Flipping through old yearbooks from previous classes, it’s amazing to see how much Campbell University has changed just in the past few years. But given all of the new change in landscape, buildings, and academic programs, some things at Campbell will always remain the same. Campbell is home to many yearly traditions, including the annual Spring Fling.
This Thursday we are taking you back to Campbell’s Spring Fling in 1996. So what was going on around campus during Spring Fling 19 years ago? Campbell students enjoyed several events similar to the ones hosted this week by the Campus Activities Board (CAB). Unlike Spring Fling this year, in 1996 Spring Fling was only a 3-day event. To kick things off for Spring Fling 1996, the Student Activities Office hosted the “Spring Kickoff Dance” in Cannon Parlor. Students also engaged in many outdoor activities ranging from volleyball to limbo. One afternoon, students gathered around to listen to the group “Life in General” which performed outside in front of Rumley Center. Despite hauling-in 2 tons of sand to create a makeshift beach, “the signs of winter were still apparent” with overcast skies and low temperatures. But students did not let the cooler weather have an ill effect on their Spring Fling festivities.
Coming back to Spring Fling in 2015, students have already been participating in various outdoor activities. So far, students have participated in a fun game of Rock-n-Roll on Monday, tie-dying shirts on Tuesday, and a “State Fair Festival” at Saylor Park on Wednesday. The week of fun will come to an end on Saturday after students dress up for a night of fun in Garner for the “Spring Formal.” Fortunately for us, with warmer temperatures and sunny days, we are having a little more cooperation from Mother Nature.

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.

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.

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.
