I haven’t been on too many college campuses in my life, so I had few preconceived opinions when we arrived at Campbell to tour the campus. Our guide was an exuberant Italian-American woman from New Jersey whose two homeschooled children were enrolled at Campbell. Oddly enough, we found out that her sister had dated the same celebrity my cousin had worked for. It’s a small world. After the introductory video, we piled into a bright orange golf cart and drove around campus. It was a really cold, really gray, really dreary day, but I could see how beautiful the brick buildings and trees would be in the spring and fall.
I only got to see the auditorium from the outside, but it looked amazing. Our guide told us that anyone could participate in theater. I’m hoping to do that if I have the time since I’ve always wanted to be in a play! The dining hall looked cool. Call me a sheltered homeschooler if you will, but I’m actually looking forward to eating there. Yes, I’ve heard of the horrors of dorm food! After checking out the dining hall we went to the building where I expect to spend most of my time. The Math and Mass Comm. building was relatively new and very nice. The classrooms weren’t huge, proof of the low teacher to student ratio at Campbell.
I’m so excited to start in the fall. Campbell is extremely accommodating to homeschoolers. They will take all of my credits and hopefully will give me a good math degree. Yesterday while looking at the course catalog with Dad, I found out I could get a math major with a good minor in journalism. So that’s the tentative plan right now, and I’m very excited to implement it!
