| If you grew up in a very small town, did nothing but school work and read the bible, have never been to a party or club in your entire life, and love conservative asshole professors....then this is the school for you!...On a serious note, the only reason i ever thought about coming to this school was to play Football. Its is not even worth it, the coaching staff is horrible, they lied to me about scholarships when I visited, and the entire school does not show respect for the very few athletes on campus. All of the teachers could care less about the demanding schedule of an athlete and are unwilling to even ponder the concept. The kids who have been at the school longer than a year are either athletes on scholarships or snobby, rude, narrow-minded, "If your not a devout christian your wrong", brown nosing, anti-social hermits. Dont ever consider coming to this school if you have ever enjoyed a party or anything of that nature, because you would be making the worst decision of your life. Take it from experience. |

| First off, Let me just say I am appauled by the egativity towards Campbell University. I am about to graduate and have loved it for the most part.|
To all of the complainers about not being able to drink here is a piece of knowledge: Open the Student Handbook.Alcohol is probitted on campus or at campus sponsored events. In narrowed minded idiot talk that means you can drink at home and not at Campbell.
To all the complainers about not having a social life at Campbell: Are you blind, or deaf? There was atleast one social activity every week thanks to Campus Activities Board, plus tons of sporting events that usually brought out free pizza, or shirts. Not to mention the theatre department productions, Fall and Spring Concerts, and lets not forget all the Christian Rallies.
To all the anti-religion folks that came to CU: Did you not come to orietation? Did you not understand that we are a high standing university within the Southern Baptist Community? As a private school we are allowed to force classes on students no matter what. I will agree that they should have been more diverse in their relgious curriculm.
Finally to all the complainers about the 'middle of no where' concept of CU: Mapquest anyone? When all students come for the first visit and orientation they are told what is in the area and what is not. Reality should have hit you then.
I will say this: Campbell is more focused on their health sciences programs then anything else. I am a Social Work major and even though Social Work, and Teaching jobs are in demand we are cramped in one floor with Psychology with no promises of expansion for us. Justice anyone?So in conclusion here is a perspective: Are you going to college to be a party animal with alcohol poisoning? or to get a degree to make something of yourself? The truth of the matter is I am thankful to have a University that cares so much about me and my well-being that they would make rules to protect me.

| I am so very thankful that I ended up attending Campbell University. I had been looking at a lot of other larger in-state Universities, such as NCSU and UNC. Campbell offers a wonderful teaching staff that challenges students to succeed in the World and really prepares everyone for the future. The Political Science program is first class and most students take advantage of hands on work and volunteer opportunities. For example, I was given the opportunity (and took it) to work on several political campaigns during the 2010 Mid-term elections. Students who are looking at attending Campbell must understand that by no means is this a "party school" but there are activities planned for students so they are never bored. Club sports, intramurals, and clubs are all widely available and welcoming. Campbell is a small school, and classes are small as well - but this is wonderful. My largest class has been 25 people and I always have the opportunity to talk to my professor one on one about any concern I have. It is great! The food on campus is pretty good, but do not expect a 5-star dining service. Campus is clean, welcoming, and beautifully manicured. I would never dream of going to any other school. |
