Campbell University is celebrating the start of the 2014-15 academic year with its biggest Welcome Week ever -- fitting because it's welcoming its largest incoming group of new undergraduates (an expected 1,185) in its history. Dubbed the "Best Week Ever," Welcome Week 2014 officially began Saturday, Aug. 16, when new students started moving into their residence halls. Activities over the weekend included New Student Convocation and a Welcome Party that featured a concert by Mockingbird Sun.
Other events planned for the rest of the week include the Street Fair (on Tuesday evening), Football Fan Fest (on Thursday evening), and Party in the Park, including mud volleyball (Friday afternoon). Not to be lost in all this is the start of classes on Wednesday, Aug. 20. Detailed schedule here.
Here's a look at how Campbell marked the start of the new academic year through a video recap, photo slideshow and through your social media activity. Join the conversation by tagging your tweets, Facebook posts, and Instagram photos #CUWelcomeWeek.
