#Campbell13 review: 2 days, 5 ceremonies, 901 degrees
Campbell University conferred degrees to 573 undergraduate and 328 graduate and professional students on Friday and Saturday across five commencement ceremonies. Here's a run down of each of the five ceremonies through tweets & photos, followed by some of your pre-graduation tweets.
- In a joint ceremony on the afternoon of Saturday, May 11, the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business and the School of Education conferred degrees on about 277 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. In her commencement speech, the N.C. State Superintendent of Public Instruction June St. Clair Atkinson said: “You can be a leader, and it may be easier to see yourself as a leader when you realize that leadership is not about the title or having a higher salary. Leadership is about how you take on challenges, adapt to changes, and encourage others.” The Lundy-Fetterman School of Business and School of Education graduation capped off Campbell's five graduation ceremonies.
- On the morning of Saturday, May 11, in the John W. Pope, Jr. Convocation Center, the College of Arts & Sciences conferred degrees to its students as members of the Class of 1963 -- the first to receive four-year degrees from Campbell -- watched. Among the pieces of advice that Dr. Janelle A. Rhyne, medical director of Cape Fear HealthNet, offered to students in her commencement speech was this: "The initial decisions you make in life do not have to govern your subsequent decisions.”
