It's really sad to see all these people ripping Campbell apart. Campbell is a small school with a rich history and tradition. I work for the athletics department here and absolutely love it, its also a big plus getting hands on experience for my major (sports management). The faculty here is extremely helpful and genuinely cares. Campbell is not a raging party school but if you know enough people you can always find a party to go to. These people saying there is no social life are sorely mistaken its sad that they take out their frustrations of a lack of social skills on Campbell. I promise you Campbell is actually a bigger party school than given credit for. Overall I would rate Campbell a 10. I love it here and couldn't imagine going anywhere else.
questionI have been looking into transferring to Campbell and began the process a few weeks ago. So my question is, what good reason does any one have to transfer to this school if what they have taken elsewhere is at best reluctantly received?

There are two things that have turned me off to the school thus far that have informed this question: First, the poor follow through on the behalf of the admissions staff. After filling out a Request Information form, which came with the assurance of a call from someone like almost every college does, no one called. So I took the initiative myself and called. Although I have sent a dozen emails to the individual I spoke to, he still hasn't responded to a single one.

My second issue is with transfer credits. I will have over 60 credits from my local community college with a solid, perfect 4.0 GPA. This will come with a Writing Intensive designation and Honors Institute attachment. But by my calculations, fewer than half of my classes will transfer.
I consider this to be very problematic since I worked hard for what I have earned and would have absolutely no incentive to transferring to Campbell if this is the case. Further, it is not as if the classes I took came from some woodchuck community college that seems to be the norm in North Carolina. Instead, it is one of the most respected innovative and challenging community colleges around and I am sure more people have heard of this school than have ever heard of Campbell. Moreover, Campbell's upper level classes appear on par with this institution's lower level classes. Again, I can't confirm this since I can't get a call back or a return email to save my life, but I cannot fathom how it is possible for a school to accept so few transfer credits that are run of the mill Liberal Arts.
