But seriously. Stop asking why I can’t go out to the bars on a Tuesday night.
Hey, sorry for the delayed response. You should be able to get in with a 3.0 gpa. That is respectable. Our admissions office looks at weighted GPA, rather than unweighted. The SAT will work, but I can tell you that more scholarship money is available if you do well on the ACT instead.

Yesterday we posted a list with links to stories about the trick golf shot that our students in the PGA Golf Management University Program made that have appeared on various news and entertainment sites with local, national, and global audiences.
Of course, we at Campbell University…
No problem! I love my school. I was set on attending the University of Tennessee, but that changed when I visited Campbell. As soon as I stepped on campus it just felt right. You’ll experience that somewhere eventually. I came at first because it felt like home and it felt right for the path I wanted to take in my education. It’s a small campus but beautiful (except when construction is being done like at most colleges). We are located in the middle of nowhere but close to somewhere. For example, Raleigh, Fayetteville, Garner, and Durham are within 20-45 minutes away. I like it though because we’re not isolated but far enough away to keep from getting distracted too much since it is a dry campus. It is a Baptist-affiliated school, but that doesn’t mean that you have to follow any specific religion or set of beliefs to fit in here.
Our law school has had the highest bar exam scores in North Carolina for a few years now. The business school is becoming one of the top in the nation and is often seen in national magazines. The pharmacy school has had a 98.5% passage rate on the board exam over the past 25 years. Needless to say, I think we’re very strong and can compete with the larger schools when it comes to getting you a job after school.
Useless facts about the school that I like:
- Colors are black and orange (Gotta love it!)
- Mascot is the Fighting Camels
- Big spring concerts every year
- Great athletic and academic facilities
- Named the safest campus in NC
- Named the number one college in the US to find love
All of the employees and most of the teachers are nice. The only place you see grumpiness is when it comes to financial aid or the business office but that’s in every college.
Obviously, I’m biased. I’ve been here three years and just got accepted to pharmacy school so I’ll be here for four more haha. However, I highly recommend coming for a visit! A private one is best from personal experience, but a public one would be alright. Find out what you like and go with it. Good luck in your decision and if you have any more questions, feel free to ask! Oh yeah, and GO CAMELS!
The bizarre hoax involving Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o and his supposedly dead girlfriend took the Internet by storm this week. Soon it will blitz a theater near you.
