Why we chose Campbell

September 1, 2015 | Leave a Comment


Campbell University opened the 2015-16 academic year with around 1,100 freshmen -- the largest entering class in the school's 128-year history. These first-year students come from all 100 counties in North Carolina, nearly 40 states in the U.S., and a dozen countries from around the world. Their average high school GPA was 3.9, and more than half are majoring in pre-professional fields like pre-pharmacy, pre-medicine, and pre-law. (See Class of 2019 profile for all majors.)

Thirteen members of the Class of 2019 talked to Campbell.edu about what drew them to Campbell and what they are looking forward to here. All the students featured below are recipients of full scholarships or $10,000-a-year scholarships. In addition to their responses below, read short profiles of each of them: Meet 13 freshmen
