BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – Gardner-Webb University will host GOAL (Greater Opportunities for Adult Learners) Student Campus Day on Saturday, Nov. 2 in conjunction with the Runnin’ Bulldogs football game that afternoon.  This annual event takes on more significance, as the GOAL program is celebrating its 35th anniversary this semester.

Student Campus Day begins at 10:30 a.m. with a tailgating party near Bridges Gate, along Main Street that will run right up until the kickoff at 1:30 p.m. of Gardner-Webb’s game vs. Warner.  The event includes door prizes, a chance to interact with other GOAL students and alumni, a word from university administrators, free face painting for the kids, tailgating, and the opportunity to recap 35 years of GOAL.

Alumni, families, and students are also invited to visit the Stadium Bulldog Shop starting at 12:30 p.m. until the end of the third quarter of the game.  The Campus Shop, located in the Tucker Student Center, will also be open for shopping from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The Gardner-Webb University GOAL program seeks to meet the unique needs of students working full-time jobs and simultaneously seeking advanced education.  Students can continue their studies culminating in a baccalaureate degree.  Majors include accounting, business administration, business management, computer information systems, healthcare management, nursing, multidisciplinary, and religious studies.  The Godbold School of Business offers an MBA (Master of Business Administration) and related graduate programs, while the Gayle Bolt Price School of Graduate studies offers several master levels and one doctorate in education.  This important mission of Gardner-Webb was one of the first programs of its kind when it began in 1978.
