My name is Olivia Long, and I am beyond excited to be your H4 counselor! This will be my third year as a counselor for H4, and I also attended it as a freshman and absolutely loved it! It is such a fun and exciting way to be introduced to your fellow students and the Mahurin Honors College.
I am from Louisville, Kentucky, and I will be a senior this upcoming year. I am an Elementary Education major, and I am so thankful for the wonderful program that I am in. I came into WKU as a Finance major, but I changed majors during Master Plan week because I realized that Elementary Education was a better fit for me.
One of the greatest things about WKU is that it is really easy to get involved and meet amazing friends. In my time here, I have become an HonorsTopper (which is essentially an ambassador for the Mahurin Honors College), joined a sorority, attended different college ministries, worked for the university, met my husband, and made lifelong friendships. Attending WKU has honestly grown me as an individual and the opportunities I’ve had from being on the Hill are some that I would never have had at a different school.
I am so glad that you chose WKU as your home for the next four years. I could go on forever about why I love the Hill so much, but I think I’ll let you figure out what will be special about the Hill to you because everyone has their own unique experience. I hope that you love this school as much as I do, and I can’t wait to share it with you! If you have any questions or if you just want to introduce yourself, please feel free to contact me!
I am so excited to meet you all at H4!
