My name is Allie, and I will be your H4 Counselor this year! I attended H4 two years ago as a camper, and I loved it so much that I decided I wanted to come back as a counselor! This will be my second year as a counselor, and I can’t wait to meet you all! I am a junior majoring in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in both Language Arts and Social Studies. I was born and raised in Bowling Green, Kentucky and loved it so much that I decided to stick around for another four years as a Hilltopper.
In my past two years on the Hill I have joined a Greek organization and have become involved with some campus ministries. I also participated in Dance Big Red, joined a couple clubs, and am an ambassador for the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences. Whatever your interests are, WKU has something for you! Outside of WKU life, I like to craft the perfect Spotify playlist, read good books, go to concerts, and be outside!
This past spring I traded in the Hill for a castle at Harlaxton College in England. For four months I studied all things Britain and got to travel to 10 different countries! Studying abroad was one of the main reasons I chose WKU and the Mahurin Honors College. Wherever you want to go, they will help send you there!
The Mahurin Honors College and H4 are truly one of a kind places. After meeting and living with people from different schools at Harlaxton, I realized that Mahurin Honors College students have so much school spirit and are truly so passionate about what they do. My advice to you for H4 and the rest of your four years is to be 100% yourself. Yes, that is very cliché, but college is a time to reinvent yourself if you want, or just to be truly yourself. Put yourself out there, and WKU will help you grow!
I am so thankful for my H4 and Mahurin Honors College experiences. I’ve made the best memories as well as some of my closest friends. I can’t wait to see what these things will do for you! I am excited to meet you all. If you have any questions or just want to talk, don’t hesitate to email me. See you soon!
