The number one thing I encourage future students to check out:
I highly encourage students to check out our scholarship site TopDollar, even if they do not think they qualify. There are many scholarships that students can receive for various reasons such as the high school they attended, their eye color, and many other factors that have nothing to do with GPA or test scores.
Advice for new Hilltoppers?
My advice for any new Hilltopper is to get involved and stay involved. You have the opportunity to meet some great people who may eventually become some of your best friends. There are over 200 different clubs and organizations that you can be a part of. If for some reason you cannot find one that interests you, you can create your own!
What did you study in college?
I graduated WKU with a major in Sociology and minors in Criminology and Nonprofit Administration.
My favorite WKU tradition and/or memory is:
My favorite WKU tradition will definitely have to be the red towel. I love what it stands for and all of the history behind it, not to mention all of the awesome ones that you will receive during your time on the Hill!
Where are you from?
I moved around when I was little, but for the most part I grew up in Maryland and moved to Kentucky my senior year of high school.
