CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University has achieved a record summer school enrollment with 4,120 total credit hours taken. This is a new record exceeding the 4,094 hours recorded in 2012.


Dr. Donna Hedgepath, vice president for academic affairs, said, “We love to see students take advantage of summer school at CU.  Not only do they save money, but they also have the unique opportunity to experience more one-on-one attention from our talented faculty and get a kick start on the fall semester or work toward an earlier graduation date.”


Summer classes are generally smaller and have a discount rate. “We are extremely excited to see so many students take advantage of our summer class offerings,” Dave Walters, vice president for admissions and student services, said. 


Walters said, “It’s a great way to move quicker toward their graduation goal and ultimately they benefit substantially from the cost savings. By taking one or two of our summer class offerings, they can also take some of the pressure off of their fall and spring semesters.”


Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Campbellsville University, said Campbellsville University’s momentum is strong with new academic and athletic programs and a new wrestling gymnasium in the works.


The new gym will house the men’s and women’s wrestling programs.


“Campbellsville University is an exciting place to study and learn – academically and spiritually,” he said. As he begins his 17th year as president, Carter said the university is experiencing growth, and there are great plans for the future with Vision 2025 as the guide.


“Vision 2025 gives us the blueprint for our university,” he said. The top tenets of the plan include: enhancing the integration of faith and learning across the curriculum, preparing students for a rapidly changing world through innovative curricula, providing excellent academic, student life and athletic facilities, promoting “teaching scholarships” and community learning across the campus, centers and programs and continuing to prepare Christian servant leaders as the university increases its size to approximately 5,000 students.


Day classes for the fall semester 2015 at Campbellsville University begin Tuesday, Aug. 25. Evening classes, those beginning at 5:15 p.m. and later, begin Monday, Aug. 24.


There is still time for students to register for the fall semester.
