This is my first year in college and I just finished my first semester with lots of great memories and lessons. Even as a commuter, it's still a transition from high school to college, and Campbell was able to help me make the transition very simply and easily. Most of my professors were really good, and the student activities I was able to participate in were very fun! I've learned and gained some new responsibilities throughout this first half of the year which I believe I'll be able to carry with me throughout the rest of my college career and life.

Campbell is a wonderful place for higher education, making new relationships, and growing your faith. With small-medium sized classes, distinguished professors who want you to succeed, and a close, family-like community on a beautiful campus, Campbell feels like home.

There are endless opportunities and resources for undergrads, not to mention the Medical, Pharmacy, Law, Business, and Nursing/PA Schools. Scholarships are generous in order to help those in financial need, as well as based on merit. Come here to have fun, to focus on academics, and to achieve your career goals; don't be distracted by big name schools where you'll end up failing out of enormous class sizes and professors/advisors only know you by a number.

With the expansion and addition of programs, buildings, and professors in the last few years, I can only see positive things for the growth of this school.
I highly recommend Campbell University and believe it should be much more well known.
Choosing Campbell University was a decision that I continuously feel better and better about. As an out-of-state student, the transition of moving to North Carolina was difficult, but Campbell faculty and staff made the transition so much smoother than anticipated. Even though Campbell is technically a Baptist university, they still made everyone feel included no matter what religion they associate with. The professors and faculty are all very welcoming, and are always open to students coming to them with any questions or concerns. The university also provides a great support system for students, both within the Campus Ministry and Student Services, in an effort to ensure that all Campbell Students feel content with their experience here at Campbell. Overall, I would have to recommend this university to anyone who is considering furthering their education in North Carolina.
