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.

I attended Campbell University from 2015-2017. I believe that Campbell offers an extraordinary value for what you get in return. It’s professors and support staff are of top notch quality. They will bend over backwards to ensure you understand the material. Moreover, they invest every ounce of effort possible to ensure you do well academically. Although Campbell isn’t well known outside of the South, their programs are designed to maximize the potential of every student while, at the same time, safeguarding the integrity of the field of study. If you want an academic program that will equip you with every tool you need to be successful, strongly consider Campbell University.
Campbell University has a character that distinguishes itself from any other mid-sized university. The professors are welcoming and are willing to go out of their way to make sure that you are getting the best possible education, especially within the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business. Campbell makes you feel like they truly want to invest in you as a person, not just as a student, and put time into helping you grow both spiritually and academically. Even as a non-religious student, I felt welcomed on the campus and accepted for my personal beliefs, despite Campbell's status as a Baptist Christian university. While the party scene is basically non-existent and the campus is dry, it is still a fun school to attend and students get very excited for some of the bigger school and sporting events. As a rising-junior, I always look forward to the start of the academic year and becoming more involved in the Buies Creek culture.
