Lindsey Wilson College to finalize his place at the college.
Campbell was one of 325 incoming freshmen who participated in

attended the day with his mother, Shelley. "I'm ready to be here.

While Campbell and fellow members of the LWC Class of 2015
attended orientation activities with LWC upperclassmen, students'
family members met with college officials, including Dean of
