LWC Community Welcomes First Installment of Class of 2015

Posted on Saturday, June 04, 2011 [8:50 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Patrick Campbell literally went directly from high school into college.

On Thursday night, Campbell graduated from Central Hardin High School in Elizabethtown, Ky. And on Friday morning, he was at Lindsey Wilson College to finalize his place at the college.

Campbell was one of 325 incoming freshmen who participated in LWC's first round of summer EDGE days, held Thursday through Saturday.

EDGE -- which stands for education, development, growth and experience -- is a daylong orientation program for incoming LWC freshmen. The day introduces freshmen to the LWC community and gives them several opportunities to meet the college's faculty, staff and students.

"I'm extremely excited about coming here," said Campbell, who attended the day with his mother, Shelley. "I'm ready to be here. It's the next step. I'm just ready for this part in my life to start and for new doors to open."

While Campbell and fellow members of the LWC Class of 2015 attended orientation activities with LWC upperclassmen, students' family members met with college officials, including Dean of Student Chris Schmidt, who gave them an overview of college life.

Tarah Miller of Campton, Ky., said she especially enjoyed the orientation's ice-breaker activities because "they made orientation a lot less awkward and also introduced you to some of your classmates."

LWC will hold two more EDGE days this summer on July 22-23.
