  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

I love the campus, its like a small town. It's very secure you can call the campus police in one small call. Everybody their treats you with respect.
Caleb from Hickory, NC
Wow. Such an incredible place to learn, make friends, and begin a new journey in life. Even as a commuting student, the employees really help you transition into the colege life and atmosphere.
Alex from Benson, NC
I am a student here.

The heart and soul of Harnett County, Campbell University is home to a small beautiful campus and excellent academics. There doesn't seem a lot to do in the Creek if you don't search and look for events. Most students love it here but they complain about general education courses and weekend deadness.
Sophomore
Campbell University is a great college for students trying to find a close knit community with small class sizes. The teachers are very in tune with their students and get information across quickly and accurately. Overall, this school is fantastic.
Troy from Fayetteville, NC
Campbell University is a beautiful and peaceful college. There are various activities to keep you involved and everyone is courteous. For the majority, class sizes are small and professors actually learn your name.
Layne from Bear Creek, NC
Campbell is a wonderful school, full of wonderful individuals. It is sometimes too expensive for the quality of the things you're receiving. I cannot, however, see myself anywhere else for my undergraduate studies.
