RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law’s 121 first-year students visited Buies Creek and the main campus of Campbell University on Wednesday, Aug. 14, as a part of orientation. The day-long visit provided an opportunity for the new students to learn, witness, and experience the history of Campbell Law from current and past administrators, professors, and students, as well as several accomplished alums.
The day began bright and early in Raleigh with a light breakfast and welcome message from Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. All students and numerous faculty and staff members then traveled together to Buies Creek via bus.
Upon arriving at Butler Chapel on main campus, students enjoyed congratulatory remarks and were exposed to the history of the university and law school by Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Dr. M. Dwaine Greene, and 1982 Campbell Law graduate and law school board of visitors chairman Terrence M. Bagley.
Students later embarked on a tour of main campus, including Kivett and Wiggins Hall, which served as the home of Campbell Law from 1976 until the move to Raleigh in 2009. During lunch at Marshbanks Dining Hall, students had the opportunity to mingle and network with more than 20 Campbell Law alums.
