Welcome to H4 and the Mahurin Honors College at WKU! My name is Spencer Cassady and I’m pumped to be your H4 counselor. We’re gonna have a great time meeting new people and doing a bunch of various activities!
Here’s a little bit about me. I’m a rising Junior studying Mechanical Engineering here on the Hill and I couldn’t be more happy with my choice in a college. I was born and raised in Bowling Green, KY, so some say I was destined to become a Hilltopper! WKU is a special place and I’m sure you will feel right at home when you spend some time here. Western offers a multitude of organizations to give you the opportunity to get plugged into campus. To name a few, I’m involved in a fraternity, as well as a ministry called Christian Student Fellowship (CSF), and I’m an HonorsTopper!
Outside of school, I enjoy hanging with friends, hiking, exploring Bowling Green, and one of my all-time favorite activities is stargazing! Space is something that interests me the most so if you need a conversation starter, space is a big one for me. College is a great time to meet new people and make new friends to try out all the new experiences that Bowling Green has to offer you with. I strongly urge you to step out of your comfort zone while at college because I know they will be some of the best memories you’ll ever make and I know you won’t regret having done them.
H4 is an excellent opportunity to meet your peers and befriend one another right before your college experience begins and I’m excited that you’ve gotten the privilege to do so! H4 serves as a segway through your transition into the next chapter of your life. The other counselors and I are here to help guide you and give you advise in the best way that we know how. We also serve to answer literally any questions you have ranging from who the best professor to take for a class would be to where the best places to eat are (ask us about GADS, you won’t regret it!). At H4 you’ll be surrounded by people who are going through the same transition as you as well as counselors who have been in your shoes before, so don’t be shy to ask any question that comes to your mind!
H4 is where I fell in love with the Mahurin Honors College, and I’m sure you will too! Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone while at H4 and during your time in college. Seek to gain advise from the wisdom of the H4 counselors because we can help you out more than you may initially realize.
If you need advise about anything feel free to call/email/text me and I’d be glad to help! Can’t wait to meet you!
See you soon and GO TOPS!!
