Get to know Rachel!

Where are you from?
Alexandria, KY (NKY)

What did you study in college?
I earned a Bachelors degree in Communication and Media Studies in May 2016 and just finished my Masters in Recreation in Sport Administration in May 2019. 

Advice for new Hilltoppers?
Remain optimistic and don't be afraid to try something new. This is your four year experience, so make the most of it. Its okay to not have a fully developed "game plan" when you first start at WKU. I changed majors at least three times during undergrad.

What are your favorite spot(s) on WKU's campus?  
My favorite spot is easily Houchens Industries–L. T. Smith Stadium on a Saturday night watching some Hilltopper football. During the week, especially in the spring time, I love sitting outside at Centennial Mall.
