The John W. Pope Jr. Convocation Center at Campbell University is an important resource for the college, as well as for the community of Buies Creek and Harnett County, North Carolina. Students and residents alike enjoy watching college hoops in the center’s 3,200-seat Gore Arena. This large arena also hosts graduation ceremonies for the university and several local high schools, concerts, banquets, and other large-venue events. The center includes a smaller practice gymnasium that is also used to host banquets, meetings, and other events. Add to these uses the university athletics offices and you have an invaluable multi-use facility.
