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.

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.

On average, a person spends around eight hours a day either in front of a computer, TV screen or staying inside in general.
Between staying inside and resting from classes, studying and work, it can be hard for students to find the opportu- nity or motivation to get up and get ac- tive. Campbellsville University is giving students that opportunity by presenting the Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge.

While some members of the university family are beginning to repair the lives following Hurricane Harvey, others hundreds of miles away are just beginning to analyze the damage caused by Hurricane Irma.
Elisha Lawrence, a graduate student, said her uncle was hoping late last week to return home to the Chiefland area of Florida.
Her uncle had taken shelter along with about 1,000 others in an elementary school.
“But he doesn’t know if he will have a home to return to,” Lawrence said.
Winds at 130 miles per hour ripped through the Gulf of Mexico and made landfall in the southern-most parts of Texas, Aug. 25 and raged for four days, ending on the 29th.
Hurricane Irma followed, making landfall in Florida Sept. 11.
