This week started with a short video of nine students at Campbell University putting nine golf balls into one cup going viral. Clips of the video popped up on the likes of CNN and The Golf Channel and on TV shows such as Good Morning America, Inside Edition, and The Ellen Degeneres Show. That was just the beginning of the good news coming out of Campbell this week.
We had student-athletes win conference championships and set school records, and one of our student-athletes was named an Academic All American. Also, our forthcoming School of Osteopathic Medicine signed a new partnership agreement, and our communications office won some regional awards.
Here’s a look back at the achievements we celebrated at Campbell this week, through your Twitter and our Twitter updates:
