The Office of Student Services publishes the Student Handbook which contains detailed information regarding University policies and procedures which apply to the students and the calendar of activities. The Student Handbook is distributed to all students, faculty and staff at the beginning of the fall semester. Please refer to the Student Handbook for more information regarding the student services listed below:
Efforts are made to assist the student in becoming a fully developed, unique, whole person in Jesus Christ. Students mature through all kinds of interpersonal activities and relationships as well as through academic endeavor. Therefore, a wide variety of activities is planned and coordinated through the Office of Student Services. The Student Government Association plays a significant role in planning campus events, such as Welcome Week, Freshman Week, weekend movies, concerts, game nights, and dances. The Baptist Campus Ministry and other campus organizations provide a variety of activities. The Director of Student Activities/Intramurals coordinates a full year program of recreation and sports for students as well as other activities.
A wide array of student health services are avaliable. They include, but are not limited to first aid for minor injuries, administration of doctor-prescribed treatments and medications, health counseling (physical and mental), referral services to area physicians and specialists. A part-time campus nurse maintains posted hours. The city of Campbellsville has a level III trauma center hospital and an urgent care center available.
Student Health Insurance Coverage
All full-time student athletes must provide proof of health insurance coverage to the Athletic Trainer by September 1 of each fall semester they are enrolled in classes. Students athletes enrolling in the spring semester must provide this information by February 1. If a student athlete is covered by parents’ insurance, a copy of the insurance card, giving company name, address and policy number is required to be on file in the Athletic Trainer’s office.
All other students are encourage, but not required to have health insurance. For those students interested in obtaining health insurance coverage, information is available in either the campus nurse’s office or the Office of Student Services.
All students must have an Identification Card to attend campus activities, to use the swimming pool and recreation room, to eat in the Dining Hall, and to attend open dorms in the residence halls. ID pictures are made by the Office of Student Services. If a student loses his/her ID, another one can be purchased for $10.00. ID cards are not transferable and will be confiscated if presented by anyone other than the person to whom issued.
Enforcement of University Policies and Regulations
The Office of Student Services is responsible for enforcing the policies and regulations for students on campus. When these policies and regulations are broken, disciplinary action is taken. Details of this process can be found in proceeding pages under Judicial Council Procedures.
Campus Safety and Security
Safety and Security officers are on campus to attempt to provide a safe and secure environment for our students. Whether it be locking/unlocking campus buildings, patrolling campus during the day and night time hours, investigating suspicious acts, monitoring parking lots/issuing parking tickets, unlocking vehicles, etc., it is the goal of the department to help keep our students and the campus community safe and secure.
The safety/security officers are also on hand to assist the residence hall directors or other staff in emergency situations. The Safety/Security Office is located in the Student Services Building.
"CU ALERTS" Emergency Mass Notification System
Campbellsville University offers an alert notification system called "CU Alerts." This notification system provides students with notice of severe weather, campas crisis situations, or important information that could be vital to your safety. The alerts will be in the form of cell phone SMS/text message, and voicemail. Students may sign up for cell phone and voicemail notifications through TigerNet in "my Profile" or during the registration process. Faculty and staff may also signup through the Office of Student Services. Cell phone carriers may charge for text messages if you do not have a plan that allows text messaging.
Campbellsville University provides ample parking on campus. With the exception of handicapped spaces and those designated for visitors, guests, and VIPs, parking is unrestricted. All parking lots on campus are considered open parking for all decal categories. However, resident students are requsetedto park in those lots adjacent to/nearest their residence hall.
A parking decal is required for student driven vehicles, available through the office of Student Services. Campus parking is monitored by University safety/security Officers and student staff. Parking areas adjacent to city streets are monitored and enforced by University safety/security, as well as local law enforcement. Persistent violators' vehicles may be towed without notification at owners expense.
Three meals are provided weekdays, and two each on Saturdays and Sundays. Meals are served in the Winters Dining Hall during regular semesters. All students living in University housing are required to be on one of the Universitys meal plans.
