“Everyone must learn to understand our differences and love one another with Christ’s love. There is no room for hate or bigotry,” Dr. Donna Hedgepath, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said at Campbellsville University’s first chapel of the semester.

She said, “It’s dangerous in this world to not know, but it’s even more dangerous to not know intentionally.

“Campbellsville University has one of the most diverse inventory programs in Kentucky.”

Hedgepath said, “An advance in technology is not an excuse for laziness or procrastination or dishonesty. It doesn’t bring you success to take short cuts.”

When talking about the new programs Campbellsville is offering, Hedgepath said, “Other universities] are trying to do the next big thing, but Campbellsville is doing what is relevant and what serves the community best.”

Hedgepath also gave a few updates about the campus. There were some renovations in the Administration Building to better serve students.
