Traci Pooler: Adair County
I have many things that I love about LWC, but
if I have to pick a favorite, I love going to football games,
watching the band perform, seeing the school spirit all through the
bleachers and watching our players get fired up for the game!
My word of advice to seniors in high school:
Make sure you stay open-minded about your decision on where to
attend college and do some investigating on your own. Too many
times I see young people who do not visit places and instead make
decisions based on friends. Consquently, they select a school that
isn't necessarily the right fit for them.
Charity Ferguson: Heartland Region
I love LWC because I am surrounded by the
absolute best people in the universe. Our amazing faculty and
staff have a passion for service to others like none I've witnessed
before. I am honored to be a member of such an incredible
I wish I had known
the importance of a campus visit during my senior year. It's
really the most important part of the decision process!
Kendra Leveridge: Southern
My favorite aspect
of LWC is its small classes. You really get the chance to know your
classmates and professors, which makes your college
experience more valuable and enriching.
My advice to high
school juniors and seniors is to take the ACT early and as often as
possible. Even though you have the opportunity at the
end of your junior year, I encourage students to take
it earlier in the year -- and as often as possible -- to
maximize scholarship opportunities.
Hannah Peck: Greater Louisville
My favorite thing about LWC is how easy it is
to get involved. There are so many clubs and organizations that
offer leadership, travel and relationship building opportunities -
and incredibly accessible for students.
My best advice is to evaluate all options
early. While the college decision process can be daunting at
first, if spread throughout the senior year it can be more
manageable. And, be sure to visit all campuses you're considering -
it's a must!
Emily Carnall: Lake Cumberland Region
My favorite aspect of Lindsey Wilson College
is the service-learning atmosphere. LWC gave me the opportunity to
serve the campus inside and outside of the classroom, as well as
the local community.
My advice to high school seniors is to push
yourself to reach your full potential through extracurricular
activities and challenging classes so that you are fully prepared
for your freshman year of college.
Jessica Wethington: Central Kentucky
My favorite thing
about LWC is how easy it is to feel at home. The community I
built and the love I received was overwhelming. Breaks became
too long and I couldn't wait to get back to school. Even
though I am no longer a student, I still feel like it is my
My advice is to get
involved in as many things as possible. Don't spread yourself
too thinly, but try everything! Step out of your comfort
zone. Exploring new and different opportunities can teach you
so much about other people and about yourself.
Having the opportunity to do amazing things is why I love
LWC. I have had the
chance to sing on the stage of Carnegie Hall twice during my
encourage all high school students to take their classes, exams and
homework seriously. When
scholarship time rolls around, you'll be glad you did.
Darren Ballou: Eastern Kentucky
My favorite thing about LWC is the
diversity of the campus. During my time as a student, I met
students from several other states and countries. I
was surprised to learn that I could
experience so much diversity
right here in South Central Kentucky.
My advice is to keep an open mind with
the classes you take as a college freshmen. You may
be pleasantly surprised.
