A.P. White Campus
Lindsey Wilson's A.P. White Campus campus is located on more
than 200 partially wooded acres on a hilltop in Columbia,
which is in the Kentucky Heartland - a region synonymous with
outdoor recreation, camping, boating and hiking. Lindsey Wilson is
near several major Kentucky tourist attractions: Lake Cumberland,
one of the largest man-made lakes in the world; Mammoth Cave, one
of the Seven Wonders of the World; Green River Lake and Reservoir;
and Cumberland Falls, Kentucky's highest waterfall and the only
spot in the Western Hemisphere that produces a "moonbow."
Columbia, the county seat of Adair County, has a population of
about 4,500. Adair County's primary industry is agriculture and
light manufacturing. Columbia offers students a variety of shops,
restaurants, and churches within walking distance from campus. It
also provides an appealing small-town charm, yet is only a one-hour
drive from Bowling Green, Kentucky; a two-hour drive from
Louisville or Lexington, Kentucky; or a two-hour drive from
Lindsey Wilson has completed major renovations to more than 25
buildings on the A.P. White Campus in the last 20 years - the
result of one of the most aggressive and ambitious building
programs in Kentucky higher education.
