Lexi Grace Emmert
I’m Lexie Grace! I am a rising sophomore from Tompkinsville, Kentucky, and this is my first year serving as an H4 counselor. I am majoring in Biology and have a Biophysics minor with a pre-med concentration. I also love to eat ice cream, read, talk, play with my dog and cat, and kayak.
One of my favorite things about WKU is how easy it is to become involved on campus. Over the course of my freshman year I became involved with Greek Life and Dance Big Red (a 12-hour dance marathon designed to raise money for Norton Children’s Hospital). I am also a member of a pre- professional fraternity, where the primary purpose is to promote the interests of a particular profession. Through class, I became involved in the American Sign Language Organization; there are several courses that offer a club counterpart on campus. Earlier this summer, I was able to participate in a fellowship program with a nonprofit called “The One Hundred Dollar Solution” through the Rural Health Association. After all the adventures I have experienced, I cannot wait to see what sophomore year holds in store!
My favorite part about being a part of the Mahurin Honors College is the opportunity we are given to form meaningful relationships, both between our fellow students and the faculty. I can honestly say that I met some of my best friends at H4, and I am so thankful for that. The transition from high school to college is exciting, but it can also be extremely nerve- wracking. The relationships you will form at H4 are so valuable and will really make your transition to campus life much smoother. My biggest piece of advice for you would be this: in order to succeed in life you need three bones: 1. A wishbone, 2. A backbone, and 3. A funny bone. I know each of you have amazing goals, and the university recognizes your potential and will support your dreams. You can and will thrive here if you believe in yourselves and make a commitment to work hard and take advantage of the many opportunities WKU provides. Don’t forget to laugh along the way!
I cannot wait to meet all of you at H4! If you have any questions or need anything, do not hesitate to email me. You can also find me on Facebook (Lexie Grace Emmert) or on Instagram (lexie_grace6). See you soon!
