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 did not originally register for online courses; however, with the covid outbreak Campbell University transitioned to online learning the backhalf of the spring semester. The professors did an amazing job with this shift and were very accommodating!
Campbell has enlisted many well respected professors. I have only had a bad run in with one professor each semester. Life on campus is always active, open, and inviting. The school prioritizes student involvement and community and it really shows on their campus.
Overall, my experience with Campbell has been positive. I have met many wonderful people, and have benefited from their academic assistance tremendously. They care deeply about their students - and have many options for tutoring, peer mentoring, and other ways of providing students the ability to better their grades and help them succeed.
I only provided 4/5 stars because while the school does have many wonderful characteristics about it, the small minor details, such as building maintenance and facility upkeep is rather poor. The university has provided many new buildings in recent years, but have not done well in up keeping their older buildings, such as the aquatic center and Kivett Hall.
