My experience with Campbell has been wonderful! I completed my bachelor in psychology online and blended and I am so glad I chose this University. All the professors were excellent and always here to answer any questions. Even if I was not always on campus because I was doing the blended program or I was online, I felt part of Campbell University! It is like home! If you are looking for a school and you are wondering if Campbell is the right choice, don’t wait! It is the best choice!

I transferred to Campbell from North Carolina A&T University. The biggest difference between the two is diversity. I am an African American student and here at Campbell, majority of the student population is Caucasian. I would say the campus is a lot more peaceful than my previous university also! The staff and professors are just as helpful; being that Campbell is considered a small university. The transition has been smooth and I am glad I made the move.
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.
