Off-Campus Housing: There are a couple apartments off-campus that are still close to campus. However, students can't live in them until they are seniors. Some of them allow pets, others don't. The costs are cheaper than living on-campus. Safety is fairly good because you're still on campus, even though Campbell doesn't acknowledge it.

Off-Campus Dining: Most students go to Lillington or Dunn for food. They have fast food restaurants, so the cost is cheap for the most part. McDonald's allows students to use their Campbell money, but no restaurants have student discounts. Lillington has McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Subway, a Chinese restaurant, Zaxby's, and Bojangles. Dunn has a Japanese restaurant, Wendy's, Zaxby's, Cook Out, Arby's, and Little Caesar's.

Administration: When a student first comes to Campbell, they have to sign a contract saying that they will remain abstinent and that they will not drink if they are underage. If Campbell staff members find a student violating this contract, depending on the extent of the violation, they are either suspended or fined. They are extremely strict with visitations in the dorms. Freshman dorms have visitation hours from 6 pm to midnight. You cannot have a visitor in your dorm before 6 pm, unless they are the same sex as you. As for your parents, I'm a female, and I had to tell my RA every time that my dad was coming into the building to help me bring my stuff to my room after I went home for the weekend. Otherwise I would get into trouble. I wouldn't get a write-up, but I did get reprimanded for it. As for the visitation hours, if you want to spend time with your friends and have movie nights, they have to be late night things. You can't have all day movie dates or play board games or video games until 6 pm. This isn't fair. I think that having visitation ending at midnight is very generous, however, the time that it starts is not. As for the apartments/suites for upperclassmen, it's not as strict. Visitation is from noon until midnight. This is perfect because you have more time to spend with your friends, and there's more time to do plan.

Scholarships: Being that Campbell is a private and wealthy school, most students believe they'll get financial aid. However, I know many students who are struggling to get financial aid and scholarships from the school. Most students I know who have transferred did so because of the cost at Campbell, and the inability to continue paying for it. As for my personal experience with financial aid at Campbell, it has not been good. This is my second year at Campbell and I will NOT be coming back. I had help with my dad's GI Bill this year and last year. However, it ends at the beginning of Fall 2015, leaving me to find new ways to pay for Campbell's tuition. I was told by my Adviser to go and try to find out how much I could get from Financial Aid. When I did, the woman was not helpful at all. She told me I could take out a pell grant, and she kept repeating herself every time I would ask a question. For example, I asked her "Are there any scholarships from Campbell that I could apply for?" Her: "Yes, there's Campbell's biggest scholarship, but you can't apply for it until April. You can always take out a student loan or the pell grant." (This deadline is not fair considering the fact that if I had to transfer, which I am, if I relied on the deadline and the slim chance of winning this scholarship, I wouldn't give myself enough time or the fair chance to get accepted to another school). Me: "Thank you, but my parents and I don't want to have to take out any loans or use the pell grant. Is there anything else I could do?" Her: "Let me see...Well, you could always take out a loan." I honestly got no where with her, and the appointment did not last even ten minutes before I gave up. This woman was polite and kind, but she didn't make me feel like Campbell wanted me to stay. It was during this appointment that I made the hard decision to transfer schools. I didn't feel important, the way that I had felt when I was first accepted to Campbell.

Party Scene: I honestly have no idea. I don't party. I have never been to a party. When I've heard people talk about parties, I usually hear 'The Meadows' in the conversations. So, I'm assuming The Meadows are where most people go for a party.

Campus Food: Marshbanks is terrible. The last time I went, my friends and I got food and one of my friend's chicken sandwich had mold on it. We haven't gone back since then. The Oasis and Shouse are definitely the more preferred dining facilities. The Oasis offers grilled chicken sandwiches, among other things at their grill, as well as fresh salads and wraps. Shouse somehow seems to have better cooks and better food quality than Marshbanks. However, it is only open until two pm. Inside of the building that Shouse is in, there is also a Papa John's and a Jole Mole. Near the Oasis is Quizno's. On the outskirts of campus there is a Chinese restaurant, a Subway, and Campus Pizza. The food options that aren't Campbell's dining facilities cost money. So, most people don't go to them. We are allowed to use our money that we have through our meal plans, however, for Papa John's, The Oasis, and Jole Mole.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is wonderful, for the most part. The campus is called a suitcase campus because most people pack up their suitcases for the weekend and leave. This makes for a quiet campus during the weekend. However, during the week it's flowing with students. The on-campus housing dorms are extremely close to buildings where we have class. This is what's so wonderful about living on campus, because it only takes you minutes to get to class. Some negative things about housing would be that some of the dorms are older and are unclean. There was an issue with mold in two of the dorms. Fortunately, Campbell is renovating their dorms which will make living on campus much better for students. It's expensive living on campus. Campbell doesn't allow students to live off campus until their senior year. There are on-campus apartments that are yards away from what's considered to be the off-campus apartments that only seniors can live in. These apartments are much, MUCH cheaper than the on-campus ones, but aren't available to all students. The housing process is fairly simple, and it's online. It's a little confusing doing it the first time, but Campbell offers detailed instructions that are very helpful.

Guys & Girls: There are a wide array of people on campus you have athletes, hard working students, preppy, casual looking people, and all sorts of other types of people. Looks vary in terms of guys and girls there are more girls on campus though it seems and they can range from wearing dresses and nice clothes all the time to people who wear shorts and a t shirt all the time. As far as guys they are pretty typicall mostly in shorts and shirts and some that care to dress up quite often. The social life is pretty accepting as people from all sorts of backgrounds are friends regardless of race, upbringing, likes or social class.

Campus Housing: The dorms have good options to choose from that are close to classes and allow students to stay connected to life in college. The freshman dorms are really nice and have the newer buildings although they are renovating the older ones in the near future to get them all up to about the same level. Also living on campus is a great experience while in college that allows for community and a place where students can get to know others like them and those not like them. While the housing process is pretty easy you just sign into a database and choose the dorm and room number you would like to stay in for that year and it shows you the available places so you can only pick out of what is left and it is done by seniority.

Overall Experience: This school is a great atmosphere I love the small community feel and the people on campus are really friendly and considerate. Also the program am I in is really geared towards me and I love the professors as they are approachable and help me whenever I need. Lastly they have lots of events around campus that help students stay involved such as monthly movie nights for the school, dance parties, and scavenger hunts around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food here is nothing special nor anything too terrible. The options are few such as a homestyle, wrap, international and pizza station. Also there are options on campus like Chick-fil-a and Quizno's so the options may not be as varied as bigger schools but it is still a good selection.

Off-Campus Housing: I usually have to drive further away to get a good place.

Party Scene: Thursday's is college night at Campbell, so students usually go to The Barn, and County Seat. This is a great time to fellowship with other Campbell students and other college campuses that come. On the weekends the best parties are in The Meadows. Because Campbell is so religious most of the parties on off campus.

Campus Food: Campus dining is very good to me. There is a variety of different places you can eat so you will never go hungry. We have 2 dinning halls that serve great food that varies on a weekly basis. The best places I like to eat on campus include Quizno's, chic-fil-a, and Oasis. With "creek bucks" you can eat at chic-fil a, star bucks, subway, and quizno's.

Campus Housing: Living on campus has its perks, both good and bad. Some on the dorms need to be renovated and needs a lot more space to live. Campbell being a private school, to live in dorms is expensive. The current dorm I live in is okay, it needs more space because there isn't a lot of room to move around. On the other hand, the dorm is suite style so you don't have to share a bathroom with your hall mates. When I first started the housing process it was fairly easy. I didn't end up getting the housing that I wanted to live in which was disappointing. The campus is not as big as a regular public campus so there is always an opportunity to be socially involved.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It is a lot cheaper to live off-campus, but the process you have to go through to get approved is a head-ache. There also is not that many off-campus options.
