Trip Carpenter, a senior from Owensboro, KY, is a third-year Spirit Master with a double major in History and Film Studies and a minor in Legal Studies. In the spring of 2012, the Regents Scholar studied abroad at Harlaxton College in Grantham, England. Trip participates in Bike4alz, an organization with a mission to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer's research and is a member of Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity. He is also a student in the WKU Honors College. Although his future is still somewhat unclear, Trip is excited to discover how his passions will manifest after graduating from WKU.
Favorite Place on Campus: The foundation of the Civil War fort at the top of the hill, because it meshes my passion for WKU with my passion for history.
