My name is Erik Roepke, and I will be your H4 counselor and directional leader this fall! H4 is one of the most exciting events of the year, and I am so excited to get to share this experience with you all.
Before we get the chance to sit down and talk at H4, I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself. Born and raised in Bowling Green, KY, I am a senior on the Hill majoring in biology and chemistry with a Pre-Medicine concentration. I have dreams of one day becoming a physician after I graduate, which is one goal that WKU is helping me achieve.
One of the many great things about WKU is that there is no shortage of ways to get involved. During college, I have found involvement through my fraternity, the Interfraternity Council, Dance Big Red, the Pre-Professional club, and many more organizations. I am currently the Vice-Chair of Spirit Masters, which is the official student ambassador group of WKU. One of my favorite memories from college was last summer, when I was able to bike across the United States with a group of my buddies to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease research. I was even able to study abroad to Kenya, where I helped out in different medical clinics with a team from WKU.
During our time together, I will teach you the essentials: where to find the best donuts in town, which buildings have the nicest bathrooms, and how to dance like a fool. Knowing these three things will make for a fruitful college career!
So, that was a little bit about me! If you have any questions, please ask! I am available through email or text. I am so excited to get to meet you at H4! Come in with an open mind and a willingness to step out of your comfort zone.
See you soon,
Erik Roepke (’20)
