Camel for a Day Experience

Do you remember your first-time stepping foot on a college campus?

Were you nervous, elated, or overwhelmed? How about a ball of those emotions.

This semester, in conjunction with undergraduate admissions, the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business resurfaced their ‘Camel for a Day’ experience.

This experience allows students admitted to Campbell, with an interest in business, an opportunity to explore what it would be like to be a Campbell Business student-for-a-day.

Perspective students were paired with a current student, many of whom were a freshman or sophomore, to shadow their day. For each of them this included two to three classes, a lunch break, afternoon faculty advisor meetings, and an invitation to a men’s basketball game to mingle with other business students.

This experience gave them a chance to experience those early emotions with the support of a student guide.

Kelly Cannady, a freshman Truist Business Scholar, shared “It was cool to see how the student’s perspective of Campbell changed throughout the day. It was evident, just by talking to them and showing them Campbell through a student’s perspective, they gained a more positive view of Campbell than before.”

If you know a student, interested in Campbell University, toying with the idea of majoring in business, please reach out to our administrative assistant, Sam Regner ( to schedule a ‘Camel for a Day’ experience.
