Traci Pooler: Adair and Russell Counties
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: Central Kentucky
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: Western Kentucky
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!
Tyler McCubbins: Central Kentucky
One of my favorite things about LWC is the
opportunity for students to see and experience the world through
participation in service-learning trips, study abroad programs and
interaction with a diverse student body. Some of my most memorable
moments include serving with the Bonners in San Francisco and
Chicago, and traveling to Seattle and Alaska with the Lindsey
I encourage high school seniors to become
involved on campus -- it's one of the most important aspects of the
college experience. Participation allows students to develop
friendships, create networking opportunities and build a
Josh Gibson: Greater Louisville
I love how much the campus has changed, yet
remains the same. With all of the new facilities and great
additions to the A.P. White Campus, LWC still holds on to the
small-town atmosphere it has always had.
I suggest you to ask lots of questions about
the FAFSA and financial aid. Potential free money is a terrible
thing to miss out on, so get your FAFSA done as soon as possible
after Jan. 1.
Emily Carnall: Heartland Region & Pulaski
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: Eastern 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.
