Destiny - 01/11/2022

I think it is a great school, with a lot of opportunities to learn and meet new people. The classes are relatively small which makes it easier to have one-on-one time with professors. The campus is beautiful and there is always something going on that you can be a part of.

Maci - 07/28/2020

Campbell is a beautiful and wonderful school for many reasons. The dorm rooms are a pretty good size, and I always feel at home talking to people there. Campbell is like a safe place for me, or a home away from home. It makes me feel like everything I do, no matter what will be accepted or if I make a mistake it will be forgiven. I’m never scared I talk to others because it’s like we’re one big family. People are always willing to help each other and that’s what I truly love about Campbell.

Desha

I like it. I don't love it. Many things could be improved such as parking. But other than that, it's a pretty enjoyable college.

Angie

Overall, Campbell University is a school I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a home away from home. Campbell is safe and encourages creativity and uniqueness. Professors are approachable, friendly, and some have a sense of humor. Students at Campbell are a family, meaning everyone knows everybody and no one feels alone. Campbell University is an exceptional school.

Campbell University FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Campbell University?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Campbell University is 81%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would tell myself to learn how to actually study. College is way different than high school in which you actually need to study and understand the material to do well in classes. A lot of classes you take in college require you to take a second course which means you need to remember the material you learned in the first course. Take the AP tests and do well on them so you go into college with credits and don't have to take certain classes, which will also save yourself some money and time. College is a lot about managing your time wisely so it's important to start practicing how to do this. Time needs to be split up between going to classes, studying for those classes, doing homework or extra credit, extra-curricular activities and hanging out with friends. Get in the habit of not procrastinating! When you get assignments, start on them early because chances are, more assignments will pile in and you'll be stressed out trying to get them all done and they won't be of high quality work since you rushed through it.

  14. What are the academics like at your school?

    Your professors usually know you by name by the end of the semester. The cool thing is, most of them make an attempt to remember it even after you take their class. This is especially true after you declare a major and begin to take classes with the same professors- they really get to know you. As far as intellectual conversations outside of class- that just depends on you. We students are pretty smart, I think... Im in the religion department, personally. There are really only a handful of professors in the undergrad department so they tend to know most of the religion major and minor's names. When you see them outside of class they tend to not just say "hey" but rather ask you how you are doing and attempt to have a real conversation with you.

  15. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    There is a club for just about everything (keeping in mind that it is a Christian college and some clubs would not be allowed.) There is no Greek life on campus, but oddly- that makes for a much better college experience (well, I personally think).

  16. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    Campbell is just right as far as size... its got enough students where you dont feel like its high school all over again but it is small enough where the professors know your name and you tend to know a lot of people on campus (though there are too many to know everyone- but hey if someone wants a challenge...)
