Buies Creek is a place designated by the census with a population of just over 2,200 people and is in the Dunn Metropolitan area. You won't find a lot here, although the area is home to the Youtube comedians Rhett and Link and Campbell University. This school was founded in 1887 and has about 4,800 undergraduate and graduate students. It also has the first osteopathic medical school in North Carolina and is the only school in the United States that offers an undergraduate degree in homeland security. Of course, it also offers more than 100 other majors, if you prefer something more traditional. Dunn isn't far either and has a population of more than 9,000 people with some options for restaurants, shopping, and attractions.
