Oscar Harris Board of Trustees (new member) The Campbell Newsletters will feature the University’s 4 new trustees in the coming weeks

Marshbanks reopens with whole new look BUIES CREEK - When Campbell University students return to campus Wednesday for a new semester, they’ll find there’s a lot of “new” at their old cafeteria. Marshbanks Dining Hall will reopen for breakfast Wednesday after almost a month of construction. The biggest change is a new wok station, and other renovations include a larger salad bar, an easier-to-use dish drop-off area, new booths, rearranged seating and more. The roughly $300,000 renovations, funded by Aramark, Campbell’s food

services provider, will not only offer a better product for students and faculty, but will improve the dining hall’s overall customer service, according to Food Services Director Larry Aldridge. “It will absolutely reduce the lines,” said Aldridge, who was recently named Aramark’s Front Line Manager of the Year for the company’s southeast region. “These stations were set up more professionally to handle more volume.”

Read the magazine online at http:// NEW: President reflects on 125 years The following is from Campbell University President Jerry Wallace regarding Fouders Day, Jan. 5. (Jan. 5) marked a very significant day in the life of Campbell University. We celebrated the 125th anniversary of the founding of Buies Creek Academy and, eventually, Campbell University. Our Facebook comments about our birthday have been both inspiring and encouraging with so many alumni and friends praising their time here and expressing gratitude for their Campbell legacy. I am so grateful to be able to join them with happy memories of days gone by and the treasures I have in my heart of Campbell achievements and colleagues present and gone on to be with the Lord. Throughout our 125 years, God has been faithful to “provide” for this good place in good and difficult times. The constant of Campbell has never been the ever present up and down economies, social upheavals and times of peace, war and conflict, but the PROMISE of God’s provision. So, here we are one day into the next year waiting and hoping for our students to return to us safely on Monday and able to afford their Campbell education. I implore you to join me in greeting them with thanksgiving (THEY are

Faculty and staff are invited. The following is an excerpt on Strother written by Linda Fields Martin, administrative assistant at Wiggins Memorial Library: For 28.5 years, Donald’s smile and handshake have welcomed students, faculty and staff from across North Carolina, the USA and the world. How many times has he gone into the stacks to help patrons navigate the Library of Congress classification process? He proved an expert when it came to keeping the books “safely” in their correct home during the re-shelving process. Donald taught and welcomed “boat people from Vietnam,” students from Malaysia, Japan, the United Kingdom, the Middle East, New Jersey, Appalachia and “Down East” with the same gentle, caring spirit. Years later, many individuals have returned to introduce their spouses and children, share fond memories or just to get a hug and say hello.
