My name is Ken Barlow, and I am super pumped to be your counselor. I am going to be a junior from Louisville, Kentucky and am majoring in Journalism and minoring in Business Administration.
WKU has always had a special place in my heart. My granddaddy worked at WKU for over 25 years and my mother and her three siblings received undergraduate degrees there. It has been an honor to carry on this legacy and is great to have my granddaddy and grandmother five minutes away from campus to support me.
I am heavily involved in Greek life on campus and hold one of the five officer positions in my fraternity. I have also served in counseling positions for ages ranging from 3rd to 12th grade students, and am excited to get this opportunity for aspiring honors freshmen at WKU. Counseling has always been one of my favorite things to do over the summer and was even my full time job last summer. I am thrilled to get the opportunity to continue this and hopefully share some wisdom and pointers for being successful throughout college.
This summer, I am biking across the country with 13 of my fraternity brothers to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. This trip has been one of the most influential and impactful experiences of my life and I am proud to have shared it with some of my best friends.
Some of my hobbies include, but are not limited to: running, basketball at Preston, (extremely tryhard) fantasy football, Colts football, Fortnite, the Office, and SpongeBob.
My goal is to be here for all campers and provide any help I can. I am here to answer your questions and help make the transition to the Mahurin Honors College smooth and enjoyable! I hope you enjoy H4 and are excited for freshmen year! I am excited to meet you all! Please feel free to text or email me any questions. Enjoy the your summer and see you soon!
