My name is Emma Briggs, and I absolutely can’t wait to meet and work with you as your counselor at H4! I made so many wonderful memories during my time as a camper in 2016, and I’m so excited to share the same experience with you!
I am a Bowling Green native, so when it came time for me to decide where to go to college, I was often conflicted between staying in BG and attending WKU, or moving and attending elsewhere. Of course, I chose to be a Hilltopper, and the biggest factor in that decision was the incredible wealth of community and opportunity I found within the Mahurin Honors College at WKU.
During the past two years, I declared a major in Elementary Education and a minor in History, worked in departments on campus, joined a sorority and have served as the Historian and Special Events Chair in my organization, participated in Dance Big Red, became a member of organizations like Best Buddies and Young Americans for Freedom, served on the Circle of Sisterhood committee, and work with the team of Honors Alumni Ambassadors. All these things have made campus life so rewarding, and I hope you can find some awesome ways to get involved this year!
When I’m not busy with school or other activities, I also love spending time with family and friends, traveling, telling dad jokes, reading, doing almost anything outdoors, and keeping up with the British Royal Family.
Again, I’m super excited to meet you and experience H4! I’ll always remember the hours on the lake, the massive games of Ships and Sailors, and the wonderful opportunities to meet fellow Honors scholars before the school year starts. I hope you’re enjoying your summer and getting super excited for H4 and your freshman year. As you prepare for the many exciting and possibly overwhelming things coming up, remember that it’s okay to be nervous, to ask lots of questions, and to not know what you’re doing. You have plenty of time to figure everything out, and I’m here and ready to help you along the way!
If you have any questions or thoughts before H4 begins, let me know! I’ll be in touch soon, and I can’t wait to meet ya!
