Campbell University Application
Campbell University is a moderately sized, private, nonsectarian school affiliated with the North Carolina Baptist Convention, located in the town of Buies Creek, North Carolina, and is home to over 2,500 undergraduate students and approximately 500 graduate and part-time professional students. The university is perhaps best known for integrating a true liberal arts education with a preprofessional major program. The university itself is actually divided up into several smaller undergraduate and graduate colleges including schools of the liberal arts and sciences, business, education, biological science, communications and the arts, computer and physical sciences, engineering and environmental design, health professions, and social sciences. Campbell offers its students a wide variety of majors, both in the liberal arts and preprofessional, however, some of the most popular with students include majors in the areas of trust management, (a very unique major...) English, music, pre pharmacy, mass communication, as well as business administration.
Admission to Campbell University is not quite as competitive numerically as other larger private institutions, however, the academic admissions standards are quite high, and have been getting even higher with each passing admissions cycle. Last year, more than 2,010 students applied for admission to the school, and approximately 1,300 of those students were accepted; of those, about 680 of the admitted students enrolled for the coming Fall semester. The admitted students had an average combined SAT score ranging from 1100 to 1220, and an average comprehensive ACT score ranging from 25 to 31. Additionally, more than 70% of the admitted students were ranked in the top 25% of their high school graduating class with an average high school GPA of about a 3.72.
Campbell University has a very manageable student to faculty ratio of 18:1, and while some of the general education and introductory classes are held in large lecture halls, most of the more specific and advanced classes have under twenty students. The professors are very dedicated, and do everything they can to be accessible and open to their students when they may have difficulties, or even if they need someone to talk to about social difficulties.
The Social Scene
The town of Buies Creek is quite small, however, the campus is only about a half an hour’s drive away from the large city of Raleigh, which is a popular weekend destination for many students who own cars, and for those students who do not, we hear it’s no problem to hitch a ride! There are no fraternities or sororities on campus, and some students lament their absence, but most students seem to be pretty good at coming up with other ways to have fun. The administration is pretty strict when it comes to on-campus drinking, but students who throw parties in their dorm rooms seem to be pretty good at wiggling their way around these “rules.”
The dating scene isn’t exactly diverse, but we hear people have that distinctive Southern charm and always aim to please...
“The professors are really dedicated here, and you never feel like they are more concerned with their careers than their students.”
“The study abroad programs are awesome; there are plenty of opportunities to broaden your horizons.”
“It’s nice being rather close to a major city without having to deal with any of its inherent stresses.”
“The campus is a bit too small; it seems like no one has anything else to do but gossip.”
“There is absolutely no party scene here. The weekends are pretty bleak.”
“If you don’t have a car, you are completely stuck here. It can make you incredibly stir-crazy.”
