Timothy Zinnecker Professor of Law

Students launch their own sports businesses BUIES CREEK — When Dr. Elizabeth Lange asked her students to create a business model for their course on sports business, she didn’t expect her students to actually deliver on a full-fledged business … much less, a handful of them. But three months into the senior-level course, under the department of Exercise Science, Lange’s students are selling their products, obtaining business licenses and seeking patents on items that could change the sports world for the better. “I feel like a proud mom,” said Lange, a first-year assistant professor who holds a doctoral degree in kinesiology and a

masters in physical education. “It’s been great to see how engaged and excited these students have become about their products.” Melbourne, Australia senior Annabelle Gibney and Delaware senior Marisa Muller — both members of Campbell University’s women’s soccer team — focused on school spirit for their business plan and devised “What Would Gaylord Do?” wristbands. The “Gaylord,” of course, referring to Campbell’s camel mascot.
