Columbia Facilities

A.P. White Campus

Lindsey Wilson's A.P. White Campus campus is located on more than 200 partially wooded acres on a hilltop in Columbia, which is in the Kentucky Heartland - a region synonymous with outdoor recreation, camping, boating and hiking. Lindsey Wilson is near several major Kentucky tourist attractions: Lake Cumberland, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world; Mammoth Cave, one of the Seven Wonders of the World; Green River Lake and Reservoir; and Cumberland Falls, Kentucky's highest waterfall and the only spot in the Western Hemisphere that produces a "moonbow."

Columbia, the county seat of Adair County, has a population of about 4,500. Adair County's primary industry is agriculture and light manufacturing. Columbia offers students a variety of shops, restaurants, and churches within walking distance from campus. It also provides an appealing small-town charm, yet is only a one-hour drive from Bowling Green, Kentucky; a two-hour drive from Louisville or Lexington, Kentucky; or a two-hour drive from Nashville, Tennessee.

Lindsey Wilson has completed major renovations to more than 25 buildings on the A.P. White Campus in the last 20 years - the result of one of the most aggressive and ambitious building programs in Kentucky higher education.
