Less than a year after the fire which destroyed the Ronnie Hord Field House, Campbellsville University is finalizing the groundbreaking for a new athletic complex.

Along with the field house, there are plans for many other buildings on and off of the main campus in Campbellsville. 

​The building of these structures, ac- cording to Otto Tennant, vice president for finance and administration, will as- sist in the campaign for “Vision 2025”.

After the field house burned in Feb- ruary of last year, there was a need for facilities to house Tiger athletes.

Items that represent our tech- nology such as cell phones, dol- lar bills, newspaper clippings, photographs of the campus, let- ters, brochures detailing what new 2017 cars and trucks are available and even a carburetor are items all suggested for inclu- sion in a time capsule to be buried in celebration of Camp- bellsville’s bicentennial.

Campbellsville university students, staff and faculty are being asked to provide items for the capsule which will be buried on Thursday, Oct. 7 at Bicenten- nial Park.

Tanguy Claisse, a sophomore at Campbellsville University, was unsure about moving from France to the United States for college.

He knew no one and would be moving away from all his friends and family.

However, thanks to the efforts of many at CU, he felt right at home.

Claisse had the chance to play sports and have a pizza party with people he might not have otherwise met; all because a group of leaders at the university decided to do something to celebrate international students.

This is a very special time in the life of Campbellsville University as it marks the 112th year of Christian higher educa- tion at Campbellsville University,” Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Camp- bellsville University, said at the univer- sity’s opening convocation service on Aug. 30.

Carter addressed the packed house in Ransdell Chapel detailing the many changes that have occurred over the past year.

“If the numbers match up with the bodies, we will have a record enroll- ment,” Carter said.

Enrollment, which reached 5,035 dur- ing the spring semester, has hit 5,204, at this point, for the fall semester, according to Carter.
