What is your favorite time of year at WKU? 

Where are you from? 
Slaughters, KY (It is not as scary as it sounds!) 

What did you study in college? 
During my time at WKU, I received a Bachelor of Arts in English (Professional Writing) and Communication Studies. I also started my Master of Arts in 2019 as a JUMP student in the Student Affairs in Higher Education program. I will complete that program in the Summer of 2022.  

Advice for new Hilltoppers? 
Step out of your comfort zone! Getting involved on campus is very rewarding and makes your college experience more fulfilling. Whether it be signing up for a club or talking to a new person, take a step towards becoming a part of the WKU community.

What does the WKU experience mean to you? 
The WKU experience is about growing academically and personally. “The Spirit Makes the Master” describes what it means to be a Hilltopper and how WKU helps you achieve your goals in every area of life.  

My favorite WKU tradition and/or memory is:
My favorite WKU tradition is the Red Towel. As a student, I gave campus tours, and I loved telling this story, as well as incorporating my family’s history with the institution. I love sharing my WKU story! 

What is your favorite spot on WKU's campus?
My favorite spot on campus is Centennial Mall. No matter what time of year, there is always something fun going on in this area. It is a great spot to study outside, take beautiful campus photos, and enjoy a walk underneath the Cherry Blossoms in the spring!
