My name is Margo and I will be your H4 counselor! I am so excited to meet you and welcome you into our big Mahurin Honors College family!
I am entering into my senior year here at WKU and am majoring in Economics and Arabic. I’m also in the crazy process of taking the LSAT and applying to law school with hopes of becoming a human rights attorney. I’m super excited for my final year on the Hill and what’s in store for post-grad life!
I am from Erlanger, Kentucky which is part of the NKY/Greater Cincinnati area. It was hard moving 3.5 hours away from home, but coming to H4 allowed me to meet so many amazing people and it smoothed my transition to college tremendously.
One of the biggest pieces of advice I can give you is to get involved on campus early! I currently serve as an HonorsTopper Ambassador for the Mahurin Honors College. I’m almost always giving tours, so if you see me around be sure to say hi! I also am involved with the Christian Student Fellowship on campus, am part of the Economics Book Club (nerdy, I know!), and am an intern in the Immigration department of the International Center of Kentucky. I also had the opportunity to study abroad in Costa Rica with the Economics department in the Spring of 2017 and am currently studying abroad this summer in Morocco. My involvement on campus is how WKU went from being just a school to being a second home to me, so I really encourage you to find something to get involved in your first semester!
I chose to come to WKU and be part of the Mahurin Honors College for many reasons, but the reason I keep coming back semester after semester is because of the incredible community I have found here and all of the opportunities that I get to take advantage of. H4, and freshman year in general, allowed me to meet so many motivated, diverse people that I continue to learn from every day. Some of my favorite college memories were made in Minton Hall and at H4 so I am excited for you to get to experience the Mahurin Honors College for yourself!
Please don’t hesitate to email or text me if you have any questions for me at all! Enjoy the rest of your summer and I can’t wait to meet you in just a few week’s time!
See you soon!
