New students move in Saturday, August 27, 2011


The landmark oak tree outside the Campbellsville University Administration Building looks to be possibly as old as the 105-year-old campus itself. The tree has been given a seating area all around its base which has become an inviting area to sit, visit, study or meditate. On Saturday, August 27, 2011, it was also a handy meeting place and lunch stop for families bringing in their students. (Campbellsville University photo by Linda Waggener)

Bonnie and Tom Kaninski took a break under the landmark oak tree in front of Stapp Hall after helping their daughter Kaylee move into her new home at Campbellsville University. They made the 10-hour drive from Buffalo NY on Friday and helped their daughter get her student I.D., post office box and other details accomplished. On Saturday morning, when this photo was made, Kaylee was with her CU Bowling team members getting physicals done while her parents waited. The CU freshman found Campbellsville University online by putting her criteria into, according to her dad, and it matched everything she wanted (math and Spanish majors) with CU.
