Kivett Hall, built 1903 Campbell University was founded as a community school on January 5, 1887 called Buies Creek Academy. It was founded by North Carolina preacher James Archibald Campbell, who believed that no student should be denied admission because of lack of funds. It started with 21 students. James Archibald Campbell is grandfather of former professor and Buies Creek Resident, Catherine Campbell King. Late husband, Robert King, used to work there as well. She now resides across from Campbell University front. In 1926, the school attained junior college status and changed its name from Buies Creek Academy to Campbell Junior College. In 1961, Campbell became a senior college. The name was changed to Campbell University on June 6, 1979.

However, Buies Creek is approximately 33 miles (53 km) south of Raleigh, the state capital and North Carolina’s second-largest city, and approximately 33 miles (53 km) north of Fayetteville, North Carolina’s sixth-largest city. The center of campus is Academic Circle, which fronts Leslie Campbell Avenue to the south. Academic Circle is a grass throughfare, laced with sidewalks and magnolia trees that is surrounded on the south by dormitories Layton Hall (1923), Kitchin Hall (1955), and Baldwin Hall (1958) and along the north by the Frederick L. Taylor Hall of Religion (1973) (Divinity School), D. Rich Memorial Building (1923), Kivett Hall (1903) (Law School), Wiggins Hall (1993) (Law School), and Britt Hall (1947) (campus bookstore). North of Academic Circle the buildings flank the newly developed Fellowship Commons, a series of brick sidewalks and gathering places that connect the campus from the
