During Summer Orientation II July 12-13, we asked about a dozen incoming students why they chose to attend Campbell University. Here's what they said.
“I know people who came to Campbell, and I have heard that the university is all about helping their students become successful. When choosing schools, I knew I wanted to attend a university that makes its students the top priority. I am really looking forward to classes, the dance team, and making new friends.”
Christine Brunetti // Lancaster, PA
“I was told that Campbell has a top Pharmacy school, so I checked out the website and really liked what I saw. I am very excited about starting classes in the fall. I love the atmosphere and the feel of the campus.
“I want to attend pharmacy school, and Campbell is known for its pharmacy program. I heard about the university from my high school counselor. For the new school year, I am looking forward to moving out, having more independence, and meeting new people.”
“I picked Campbell because of the small community and down-to-earth feel. My grandmother attended college here, and she told me about the great relationships students have with their professors and advisors.”
“I knew I wanted to come to the South for college, and I had heard great things about David Orr and the PGM program here. My golf coach encouraged me to look at Campbell, and when I did, I knew it was a good fit for me.”
Dalton Bee // Marietta, GA
“My mother came to Campbell, so I grew up learning about the university. I knew right away that Campbell was the right place for me. This is the only university I wanted to come to. I am looking forward to everything in the fall: independence, meeting new people, and the good food.”
Briana Bryan // Wilmington, N.C.
“I chose Campbell because of the Christian school aspect. I attended youth choir camp here and became familiar with the campus. I love it here, and I’m really looking forward to starting classes and getting more into my major.”
Carla Mungo // Monroe, N.C.
“When it came down to researching the best law programs, Campbell was at the top of the list. There were other schools that had good law programs, but everywhere I went, when someone asked me what school I wanted to go to, I’d say ‘Campbell,’ and they’d say, “Well, if you go to Campbell, you can pretty much write your own ticket in life, because Campbell is a great school.’ That’s why I chose it.”
Maddy Dolinar // Harford County, Md.
“I play lacrosse, and I knew the coach coming here. He told me to check out the campus to play. I came and liked the whole setting and the people. I love lacrosse, and I love the team. And I thought it was cool that the program here is starting its second year. I thought it would be fun to be part of starting something new.”

“I live nearby, and I was looking for somewhere local. I had a relative who went to Campbell and enjoyed it a lot. And my high school counselor suggested I look into. It seemed like the right place. It’s a smaller college with the right major.”
Daniellemaree Dwyer // Fayetteville, N.C.
“Campbell has a great pharmacy program, and that’s what I wanted.”
Chad Davis // Dudley, N.C.
Trust and Wealth Management/ Pre-Law
“It’s the only school with a trust and wealth program, and their numbers are really high for placing students in law schools, and I want to go to law school. I knew the first visit here that it was the right school for me. It’s small, and I like knowing the teachers. It’s the only school I applied to.”
