Campbell University students have many opportunities to participate in student organizations and clubs on campus. For more information about available groups, visit Campbell’s Student Clubs & Organizations page.
Social Work Club
The Social Work Club is open to any Campbell University student with a genuine passion to make a difference. The club hosts guest speakers in the social work profession as well as representatives from social work graduate programs across North Carolina. It strives to address the various interests, needs, and concerns of the campus as well as the surrounding community to improve the quality of life for others.
The club is a very rewarding student organization: as members reach out to those in need, their lives are inevitably transformed as well. Some of the club’s service projects include food and clothing drives and Relay for Life. It also adopts a family from the local elementary school each year to provide school supplies and gifts or meals for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter.
Meetings are held bimonthly and are announced on flyers, in campus newspapers, and in the University calendar.
For more information, contact the faculty advisor, Carmellia Webb.
