Hi! Hey! Hello!
My name is Allie, and I will be your H4 Counselor this year! I attended H4 three years ago as a camper, and I loved it so much that I decided to come back as a counselor! This will be my third year as a counselor, and I can’t wait to meet you all! I am a senior (I feel so old) majoring in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in Language Arts and Social Studies. Even with that long title I still have no idea what I want to do with my life. I was born and raised in Bowling Green and loved it so much that I decided to stick around for another four years as a Hilltopper.
In my past three years on the Hill I have joined a Greek organization and have become involved with a campus ministry. I also participated in Dance Big Red, joined a couple clubs, and worked two jobs. Whatever your interests are, WKU has something for you! Outside of WKU life, you can find me eating a blueberry donut at GADS, reading a good book outside, going to a last minute concert, or cartwheeling literally anywhere on campus.
During the Spring of 2018 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, and I can’t wait for you all to experience them and make them your own. My advice to you for H4 and the rest of your four years is to say YES to everything (within reason). There are so many opportunities I would have missed out on if I let my nerves take over. Thankfully, I said yes in those situations and from that, experienced so many unique things.
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 at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon!
