Coordinator of Campus Visits
Get to know Owen!
What is your favorite spot on WKU's campus?
I would have to say the front steps of Cherry Hall. Here you can see campus, but also downtown Bowling Green where I have grown up. This area sort of collides my two worlds, Bowling Green and WKU! Also, this is one of the best views for the Homecoming Parade each year!
Where are you from?
I’m from Bowling Green, Kentucky. I have lived here my whole life and graduated from South Warren High School in 2015! Being able to serve the Warren County and Bowling Green region is so special due to how fast this area is growing!
What did you study in college?
I studied Strategic Marketing, and was actually an Ambassador for the Gordon Ford College of Business! My time within the College of Business gave me more relationships and connections than I ever imagined. I am so thankful to have found something I’m passionate about, plus I gained real world experience from the Marketing department!
Advice for new Hilltoppers?
Don’t set any expectations for college, really. Come in with an open mindset ready to go wherever your path takes you. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
What I enjoy most about working in WKU Admissions:
Having such valuable relationships with my coworkers is one of my favorite aspects; however, my favorite part of this job has to be seeing students grow. Supervising the tour guides for the Admissions Office allows for me to see students throughout the entirety of their college career. Some may even find their passion to work in Higher Education, like myself! Regardless, I am grateful to work in such a rewarding work environment every day.
